Jailer Jailed

Lieutenant Colonel William Steele, a former US commander at the jail that held Saddam Hussein, was jailed on Friday for two years after a court martial found him guilty of illegally possessing classified documents.

Lieutenant Colonel Steele was also dismissed from military service, and will forfeit all pay and allowances. However, his sentence will be cut by 229 days as he has already served that in detention in Kuwait awaiting trial.

Steele was acquitted on the more serious charge of aiding the enemy by supplying an unmonitored mobile phone to an inmate.

The judge, Lieutenant Colonel Timothy Grammel, also found him guilty of having an inappropriate relationship with an Iraqi interpreter and failing to obey an order.

This is a total set up by the government to keep Steele from talking about corruption.

There was a FBI investigation of the military involving two men, Vance and Ertel. They were looking into charges for the FBI after blowing the whistle....that American soldiers were selling american arms to the insurgents via a third party.

Vance and Ertel were held in camp cropper and had spoken to steele.

These charges are ridiculous against him.

It's a set up. They threatened him with more years than they gave him, I'm sure in a plea agreement.
