Another take on the debate in Israeli society over the checkpoints. I can see the Fox (network) show now: Grandmas fighting Grandmas. I can also see the Fox (cable) exposé: Israel’s fifth column – your Grandmother.
A soldier who deserted from the US Army in Iraq because he found the war morally objectionable – partly because of the treatment of prisoners – faces the same punishment as those who abused the prisoners at Abu Ghuraib. I turn to those more knowledgeable: Can he plead that he deserted because the orders were illegal?
