Army Times reports that:

An Army captain from Colorado charged with killing two Iraqi civilians has been convicted of lesser charges in Iraq.

Military officials say Capt. Carl Bjork was found guilty of reckless endangerment and negligent homicide in a general court-martial on Tuesday. He was reprimanded and will lose a third of his salary for one year.

You’ll have seen various reports about the pending prosecution of CPT Bjork for allegedly ordering some Iraqi officers to shoot two Iraqi civilians (I have few here, and here).  There is a report in The US Report.

[T]he accusers are 3 former Iraqi police and a former Iraqi intel officer who are currently detainees in Iraq.

Reports have also surfaced that the detainees were allowed to speak with each other about their claims.
