|Federal Courthouse in San Francisco, before Judge Patel|
|Event Type||Court Date|
There'll be a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) hearing to release the US military's Rules of Engagement in Iraq this coming Monday, April 28, at 2:00 pm at the Federal Courthouse in San Francisco before Judge Patel.
Colleen Flynn, Chris Ford, and Gordon Kaupp filed a motion asking a federal court here to compel disclosure of documentation concerning the U.S. military's attack on the city of Fallujah and assault on a car carrying Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena. The disclosure requested is of military Rules of Engagement as well as other documentation.
The hope is that the release of this documentation will clear-up ambiguities generated by the widely differing accounts of the military Rules of Engagement, and will allow the public to better consider its military's legal justification for the destruction of Fallujah. Come out if you can.
