Military actions – judicial proceedings – and international relations  has a piece on, “Legal issues snarl German inquiry into airstrike colonel (1st Lead).”  While the piece is relevant to criticism of the German commander who ordered an air strike in Afghanistan, I thought it might resonate a little in regard to Italy’s conviction of a U.S. Air Force officer (More on the Italian prosecution on a USAF colonel).

The issue has caused strain between Germany, which has loosened its rules so that its troops in Afghanistan can shoot back, and US General Stanley McChrystal, who is trying to bolster Afghan public support for his International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).
