Update: Drop murder charges, Pantano prober urges

Drop murder charges, Pantano prober urges - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - May 13, 2005

This hopefully is good news for Pantano.

Col. Winn recommended to Maj. Gen. Richard Huck that all criminal charges be dropped, including murder and destruction of the Iraqis' vehicle. Col. Winn recommended that Lt. Pantano face administration punishment for firing too many rounds at the two men.
Gen. Huck can accept the recommendations or overrule them and order a court-martial of Lt. Pantano.

The interesting part is what was said about the main witness:
"I think now [Sgt. Coburn] is in a position where he has told his story so many times, in so many versions that he cannot keep his facts straight anymore," Col. Winn wrote of the chief witness.
