breaking news: ehren watada will not go to jail

The court martial of Lt. Ehren Watada has ended in a mistrial. A new trial has been scheduled for... March 19! Does that date sound familiar? It's the fourth anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. Nice touch, judge!

Watada's lawyers, however, believe a retrial is "very unlikely", and will argue that jeopardy attaches. Eric Seitz explains here.

A mistrial is not the ideal outcome, but it sure beats a guilty verdict and jail time.
