Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

Charges dropped against Yee

Captain James Yee, the Muslim chaplain arrested last September on suspicion of espionage, has had all charges against him dropped.

This case smelled to me from the start, though I can't really put my finger on why it smelled. He was officially charged with mishandling of classified material, disobeying orders, making a false statement, and, of all things, adultery. He was charged in military court, which is why he could be charged with adultery. Later, he was charged with conduct unbecoming an officer, for allegedly downloading pornography onto his government computer. When that charge came down, I had a feeling that the military's original case was not holding up, and they wanted something to be able to continue to hold him.

All in all, I can't say that I'm very suprised at this announcement.
