Slatten Retrial Recap: Weeks 7-8

Slatten Retrial Recap: Weeks 7-8

In week 7, both the government and the defense rested their cases (on Tuesday, July 31st). In week 8, closing statements were Monday, August 6, 2018, and then the case was submitted to the jury for deliberation on Tuesday, August 7th. The jury deliberated approximately half a day on August 7th and then a full day on Wednesday, August 8th. There was no court on Thursday, August 9th, or Friday, August 10th. The jury resumed deliberations on Monday, August 13th, and will deliberate Monday-Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until a verdict is reached. We are hoping for a verdict the week of August 13th (which is week 9). Please keep Nick and his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers as we keep the faith that the jury heard the truth that Nick did not shoot, let alone kill, the Kia's driver and will return the only just verdict: NOT GUILTY.

Bombshell Revelation: U.S. Intelligence Reveals Suspected Insurgency Ties of Lead Iraqi Investigator

Bombshell Revelation: U.S. Intelligence Reveals Suspected Insurgency Ties of Lead Iraqi Investigator

We have known all along that the "investigation" into what happened in Nisur Square on September 16, 2007, was a sham, and we've dedicated an entire page of our website to detailing several reasons why. We updated that page today because, as it turns out, apparently, the U.S. government has known something all along too. Less than a week before Nick Slatten's retrial was set to begin, the DOJ disclosed that the Iraqi officer who spearheaded the investigation, Col. Faris Karim (who also told the FBI that he was present in Nisur Square during the incident), has suspected insurgency ties.
