Did you read the story?? He was acting contrary to his orders to transport this man home. He decided to make an unauthorized detour, and unauthorized
interrogation - thus putting himself in an unnecessary situation.
LT Behenna attempted a final field interview of Mansur prior to his release.
During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and
financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently
prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder.
Wellllll, if I took a detour while transporting somebody whom I hated because of unconfirmed reports that he was complicit in the murder of my fellow
The CAAF basically ruled that Michael made a mistake by taking the terrorist to a culvert for an unauthorized interrogation and in the process
gave up any right to defend himself no matter what happened in the culvert (note that no police officer in America loses their right to defend
themselves in similar situations.)
He did... He made a mistake.... And if a police officer had handcuffed me with no charges, and took me into a drainage ditch, and I attacked him
because I felt threatened, I think the cop would face charges for shooting me. At least, in a fair justice system he would.
The entire story is skewed. Don't act like he got 25 yrs for "doing his job".
