Ramrod Five/Stryker Brigade sitrep

Reuters reports:

Lawyers for one of five U.S. soldiers accused of murdering unarmed Afghan civilians for sport petitioned a military appeals court on Thursday to open grisly photographic evidence in the case to public scrutiny.

The writ also sought to have the court in Arlington, Virginia, halt the so-called Article 32 investigative proceedings against the soldier, Private First Class Andrew Holmes, until the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals had ruled on the defense petition.

In another interesting move Holmes made an oral statement denying murder.  See The Olympian, and Reuters.
