Haditha Update: Sharratt 32, Prosecution Without A Theory

The investigating officer is having “a great deal of difficulty understanding the prosecution’s theory” of case. The prosecutor also revealed that he was unsure if the Iraqi witnesses would testify if LCpl Sharratt was sent to trial. LCpl Sharratt is accused of murdering three men in Haditha. The investigating officer, LtCol Ware, will make his recommendations to LtGen Mattis. The recommendations can include sending the murder charges to a general court-martial (felony court); sending some other charges to a special court-martial (misdemeanor court); or to handle the matter administratively (reprimand as recommended in Capt Stone’s investigation).

To review the current prosecution:

LtCol Ware’s report should be filed in the next 10 days.
