Spanish judge issues arrest warrant for US troops
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?type=wor...

MADRID (Reuters) - A Spanish High Court judge issued international arrest warrants on Wednesday for three U.S. soldiers over the death of a Spanish cameraman during the war in Iraq.

"I order the ... capture and arrest of the U.S. soldiers, with a view to extradition," High Court Judge Santiago Pedraz said in a court document, adding the order would be submitted to the international police organization Interpol.

The three men were named as Sergeant Thomas Gibson, Captain Philip Wolford and Lieutenant-Colonel Philip De Camp.

Spanish prosecutors are expected to file an appeal against the judge's order on Thursday, a legal source said.

That is one of the main reasons soldiers are still being killed in Iraq. We moved in like the mafia. The things I saw there...well, they make me ashamed to say "I was there." Oh yeah I am currently going through a Med Board so they can kick me out for coming home crazy. So much for job security. Sorry for ranting.
