Iraqi man's beating: Justified or crime? Or even true?

3 soldiers court marshaled over beating

This is a touchy subject, but basically the story is this:

One of the Iraqi men who was suspected in the bombing of 4 Blackwater contractors was caught by the US military. He says that in the "interrogation" he was beaten while he had a hood over his head.

Three of the Navy SEALS involved in this have been court-marshaled over this incident.

In the heat of the tensions, did the Seals just get out of hand? This officially isn't a "war" (I mean war was never declared) so how does the beating fall under law?

I'm can sort of see both sides on this and was wondering what ATS thought....

I felt I should add:
The accused Iraqi was taken to the doctor the next day. He had a cut on the inside of his lip, but no bruising anywhere else or other signs of a beating.
