A Retired U.S. Military made the following comment regarding the Draft U.S.- Iraqi “Security” Agreement, see:
1. The agreement that American armed forces and civilian personnel working for the U.S. Government in Iraq can be prosecuted when they are off duty is a lie!
All members of American armed forces and contractors working for the U.S. Government, are considered “on duty” 24/7, 365 days a year.
How do I know? I am retired U.S. military and during my time in the military, especially during Vietnam, they always made sure to tell us of that fact.
