Two-Year Anniversary News Blackout?

This Sunday marks 24 months since Sgt. Asan Akbar (born Mark Fidel Kools) of the 101st Airborne Division's 326th Engineer Battalion allegedly fragged Capt. Christopher Scott Seifert, 27 with a deadly grenade that wounded 15 others.

One grenade went off in the tactical ops command center of the 101st Division's 1st Brigade at Camp Pennsylvania 1:30 am, May 23, 2003. Names of wounded were not immediately released, however, a newspaper photo of the 1st Brigade's commander, Col. Frederick Hodges, showed him with blood on his uniform and his arm in a sling. FOX NEWS reported the original AP story March 24, 2003,2933,81898,00.html. Has anyone seen or heard more recent news developments in this homicide? Surely justice is needed. Where is the military's disciplinary example? Will the perpetraitor (intentional spelling) face military court martial, a section 8, or be turned over to the Iraqi/Kuwaiti justice system... ? Anyone?

i went looking at technorati, and found that not only has he not been sentenced, he hasn't even been tried. try to figure out that one. maybe we need to start kicking up some dust over this one.
