The Obama administration made a great show of ... Go To Article

JUSTICE FOR ILARIO PANTANO — NYPOST

Five years late, Ilario Pantano has been fully vindicated. Now where does he go to get his reputation back? A dogged NCIS investigator has proven that Pantano, then a Marine lieutenant, should never have been put up on war-crimes charges back in 2004-5.
