Judge rejects England guilty plea

From the Associated Press:

In what military legal experts describe as a "shocker," the judge put the case of former Abu Ghraib prison guard Pfc. Lynndie England back at square one.

Col. James Pohl tossed out the plea agreement that the reservist reached with prosecutors after Pvt. Charles Graner Jr., the reputed ringleader of the abuse, testified Wednesday on her behalf.

Pohl found that Graner's statements contradicted England's previous testimony and declared a mistrial. Pohl's finding sent the case back to Fort Hood's commander, Lt. Gen. Thomas Metz, who will decide what charges, if any, England should face.

Doesn't that seem a bit cruel, leaving her hanging like that. I mean it's as if they are taunting her and playing mind games. Now she's all in the dark not knowing what's going on. I bet that judge is just pointing at her and laughing at all the bad exposure she's getting. Where's the justice in that?

(Okay, those of you who got the sarcasm, can skip this. For the rest...the Iraqi prisoners were hung, and hooded and left naked and part of what the guards did to them. Get the irony now? “laughing at her exposure” Oh, never mind.)
