There were certainly wrongs done then, and wrongs committed today, under the auspices of war. None of what has happened, and will likely happen in the future, is in any way excusable. But it is probably a bit more useful to compare how other countries have handled these types of issues as opposed to the US. Are we perfect? Heck no! Fortunately we can still complain about it and take legal steps to try and continue to improve things.
I feel it is very unlikely that any one of us fully understand all the nuances in this story, no less the legal issues involved, from this one small news clip. None the less we should keep in mind that there are still appeal options open in this situation.
