Soldier Arrested and Charged With Rape

Well it looks like there is more to this story than I thought...

"WASHINGTON - A veteran of the fighting in Iraq is facing federal criminal charges in connection with the killing of an Iraqi woman and members of her family.
Steven Green, who has been discharged from the Army, was arrested in recent days in North Carolina, two federal law enforcement officials said Monday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the case against Green have not been made public.
The U.S. military is investigating up to five soldiers in the March rape and killing of a woman in Mahmoudiya and three of her relatives.
It is unclear why Green has been discharged."

I will defend our soldiers' honor to the death but once an incident is proven to be true, I refuse to defend actions of this type. If this proves true, this soldier should be punished to the full extent of the law.

But I also believe in "innocent until proven guilty" - Remember Lt. Pantano...
