Is the Army going to follow through with his court marshall?

He's the one accused of illegal interrogation tactics against an Iraqi policeman.

I saw a report on this last night. The Army offered a discharge from the Army and loss of his pension, or face a court martial. He said, "see you in court". The Army reconsidered its position. Now its apparently going to be a dealt with through an administrative action. Possibly a letter in his file, or a small fine.

That still is the kiss of death for his career. At least he will get a LTC pension. The news said it was likely he would have made general if he had stayed in, but with the article 15 it is over.

Why do I get the feeling that the decision not to prosecute is also a big smackdown on whoever brought the charges in the first place? Maybe even a veiled request to drop the Article 15 as well? If the complaining officer wants to continue his career that is...
