You really go over the various news sources on this story, high drama It's an end to an interesting story.
I have to agree, Dr. Tim. When certain media and entertainment figures referred to or introduced President Obama as "our lord and savior," we all knew that was blasphemy and called it such. Now for someone to make a similar kind of announcement regarding the current president, should we not say the same, that such a declaration is blasphemous?
In regards to the story itself, there is likely more to it regarding why these men were successfully prosecuted than what the press has indicated. But if they were inappropriately found guilty or unduly punished, then this action was just.

"The Army has full confidence in our system of justice," the statement said. "The Uniform Code of Military Justice ensures good order and discipline for uniformed service members while holding accountable those who violate its provisions. The foundation of military law is the Constitution, and the Constitution establishes the President's power to grant pardons."
In all three cases, advocates for the service members had blasted the Pentagon for its handling of their cases, detailing what they saw as questionable actions by prosecutors and investigators. Their cases have been featured on conservative media frequently, as advocates prepared cases for the president behind the scenes....

Well I have to scratch my head on this one! Probably most of the article came from the Washington Post and republished in the Stars and Stripes. This is where the URL will take you to, anyway.
