The truth is coming out
Legal experts said the charges against Army Capt. James Yee are relatively minor in a case that had raised fears that Yee and two other men arrested in recent months on suspicion of similar offenses might have been working together to breach security at the offshore prison.
The experts said the charges and the wording of the U.S. military’s announcement indicate investigators have found little that is sinister in the Yee case.
“All this suggests they really don’t have much on him,” said Kevin Barry, a retired Coast Guard captain and military judge who now researches military legal affairs. “It indicates the Army has decided to lowball this.”
