Army officials have decided not to prosecute 17 soldiers involved in the deaths of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan, a military report says.

Today, I present you with a counter-phrase.

Ten members of an Army military police unit should be disciplined for staging a mud-wrestling match at a U.S. military prison in Iraq, an investigation concluded. No detainees saw the episode last October at Camp Bucca, one of the largest U.S.-controlled detention centers in Iraq, officials said.

Dozens of detainees die? We'll prosecute people in less than half of the cases. But when people are caught mud wrestling? Ohhhh, now they're in real trouble.
