The pages linked here concern the case against Lt. Col. Allen B. West, 4th Infanry Division, Iraq.
Col. West is charged under Article 128 of the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) for "Aggravated Assault" for his handling of an Iraqi detainee who was being interrogated as a suspect in former and planned ambush, bombing and sniper activities against US troops -- in particular, Col. West's troops of the 2nd Bn., 20th Field Artillery Regiment operating around Tikrit, a stronghold of Saddam loyalists.
Despite all indications that Col. West's actions (firing his pistol AWAY from the interrogatee and scaring him into giving up two other Saddam loyalist thugs), thwarted what had been demostrated in previous enounters as being lethal engagements, the Army saw fit to offer Col. West a "broken sword" early out or face a courts martial.
