When rules go out the window...

...and it's up to journalists to report the horrible truth:

Sgt. Michael P. Williams, 25, of Memphis, Tenn., and Spc. Brent W. May, 22, of Salem, Ohio, are the second pair of soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 41st Infantry Regiment of Ft. Riley, Kan., to face murder charges stemming from separate incidents in August.

Williams and May, who are held in what authorities described as military confinement here, could face the death penalty if convicted.

The allegations against them are among about a dozen murder cases that have been filed against U.S. troops in Iraq. Details of their actions were revealed after last month's videotaped killing of a wounded insurgent by a U.S. Marine in Fallouja.

I don't suppose Charles will concede that the public has the right to know if US soldiers are committing cold-blooded murder in Iraq though.
