A British soldier who died four years ago after an American pilot opened fire on his convoy in Iraq was killed unlawfully, a coroner ruled Friday.
“I find there was no lawful authority to fire on the convoy,” said Andrew Walker, the assistant deputy coroner of Oxfordshire. He called the attack on the soldier, 25-year-old Lance Cpl. Matthew Hull, an “assault” and added, “There was no lawful reason for it, and in that respect it was criminal.”
What a load of crap. YANAL, certainly not a JAG, therefore, shut up.
