First Lieutenant Ehren K. Watada’s hearing: University of Illinois Professor of international law Francis Boyle, former United Nations Undersecretary Denis Halliday, and Army Colonel Ann Wright (ret.) all asserted that the war was illegal.

Government asked Law Professor if Every Soldier in the Army Who Had Deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan or Supported the Occupation from the States were Party to War Crimes:  “She Answered Honestly”

Army Sergeant Matthis Chiroux’s hearing: Prof. Marjorie Cohn, the President of the National Lawyers Guild, “…gave the most thorough, detailed, understandable and spot-on breakdown of the illegalities of the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan [at Army Sergeant Matthis Chiroux’s hearing]… She focused on the U.N. Charter, the Geneva Conventions, the Nuremburg Tribunals, U.S. Federal and Constitutional law and the Uniform Code of Military Justice… She spoke about some very hard subjects, and when the ‘government’ asked if she thought every Soldier in the Army who had deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan or supported the occupations from the states were a party to war crimes, she answered honestly.”
