Controlled Blast, Uncontrolled Death

Jimmy Hansen

After we reported last March on the stupidity behind the death of Air Force Senior Airman James Hansen in Iraq, we spoke to his father. Like any Dad who sends his son off to war, he expressed something – let’s call it disillusionment and sorrow, more than anger – that no one had yet been held accountable for his 25-year old son’s passing.

We noted:

Neither the Air Force investigation, nor the press release detailing its findings, said anything about anyone being held accountable for Hansen’s death. Air Force officials say the probe is the start, not the end, of the process, and action could be taken against those responsible.

The wheels of justice apparently have begun creaking.
