Dec. 2010: "U.S. Revises Its Rules for Afghan Night Raids" August, 2011: 22 Seals Die

Dear President Putz, Policies have consequences:
The changes in guidelines for nighttime raids, made in consultation with the White House, are intended to expand protections for civilians and increase coordination with higher-level Afghan government officials—without putting new obstacles in the way of the Special Operations units that carry out the raids, according to officials who have reviewed the new order..... A senior military official in Afghanistan said the changes were mostly administrative and would have no impact on operations. -- - WSJ.com

Defense Secretary Gates and Obama have the blood of all those killed in the Chinook downing on their hands. Too bad that neither the US Code nor UCMJ have a crime and penalty for being a total jackass who gets people killed.
