SWORD STILL HANGS OVER THE HEAD OF LIEUTENANT COLONEL CHESSANI; MARINE COMMANDANT REFERS PROSECUTION!
Those bogus charges against LtCol Chessani were triggered by a fierce house-to-house, room-by-room combat action taken by four Marines in his battalion after being ambushed by insurgents in Haditha, Iraq on November 19, 2005. Along with several insurgents, 15 civilians also died. Where insurgents purposefully use civilians as human shields, civilian casualties are tragic, but not uncommon.
The trumped-up charges against LtCol Chessani: failing to properly report and investigate the November 19, 2005 incident.
