25-year old 1st Lt. Michael Behenna (U.S. Army) claims he was wrongly convicted of killing a suspected terrorist, one Ali Mansure Mohaned, in Iraq last year. Begenna's original sentence of 25-years has already been reduced once, to 20 years. He had suspected Mansure was involved in the planting of a roadside bomb that killed two members of his platoon. After questioning Mansure, Behenna shot and killed him, claiming that Mansure tried to grab his weapon. A clemency hearing will be held this Thursday. See complete story here.
