Updates about LTC West. Continued from my post on the Case for Colonel West.
I saw Tony Snow ask Secretary Rumsfeld about the LTC West case. To me, it appeared that, while Rumsfeld agreed that the case was crap, he wouldn't comment on it so that he wouldn't accidently influence the commanders about how to move forward with the charges. I think if the case gets to Rumsfeld through proper channels that he will minimize it.
The pre-trial hearing is set for November 10th in Kirkuk.
