Pretrial hearing set in Iraq fragging case
Judge in court-martial case asked to determine if U.S. "at war"
I'm no expert on military and international law, but I would think that the Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq is a de facto declaration of war. It may be time to update the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) to account for such situations, but such changes wouldn't apply in this particular case. Hopefully, the court will rule that we are at war.Defense for alleged fragger asks for more time
