Marine to serve no time for Iraq killings

A military judge has sentenced Marine Staff Sgt. Frank G. Wuterich, who pleaded guilty to negligent dereliction of duty in connection with the shooting deaths of 24 Iraqis, to a maximum 90 days' in prison and a reduction in pay. However, he will not be serving any time in custody as a result of a plea agreement reached between prosecutors and defense attorneys on Monday.

As Mark Thompson noted on Time's Battleland blog, the Haditha case started with a bang and ended with a whimper.

"The seven other Marines charged in the case have all been acquitted or had the charges against them dismissed. Critics will argue that military justice is an oxymoron, like military music. But Marines hailed the decision as the proper end to a painful case," Thompson wrote.
