The real story of the Watada trial


By Tim Redmond

There's been a lot of press on the weird turn in the trial of Lt. Ehren Watada, but this piece, (by my old friend Bill Simpich, a lawyer in the East Bay) is by far the most interesting and cogent analyis. It really leads you to wonder: What is the U.S. Army afraid of here -- and could it be that the Pentagon just wants this case to go away?
