The other witness was an Afghan translator that was promised citizenship in the U.S. in exchange for testimony.
This man was brought to the U.S. in January of 2011 and lived on Fort Campbell in a hotel on the base at $630 per month with a van dedicated to his transportation wherever he wanted to go – all of this was on the taxpayer dime. Morality is void in this case, save for the morality of Sgt. Miller.
