Justice delayed AND Justice denied

[Catching up on a story that happened while I was away and preoccupied with other things]

The New York Times reports:

The American military on Saturday released a scathing report on the deaths of 23 Afghan civilians, saying that “inaccurate and unprofessional” reporting by Predator drone operators helped lead to an airstrike in February on a group of innocent men, women and children.
The U.S. government and its agents killed 23 innocent people. There is a "scathing" report assigning blame. So of course, there are real consequences, right? Oh, right: "four American officers, including a brigade and battalion commander, had been reprimanded, and that two junior officers had also been disciplined." "Disciplined." Probably sent to bed without dessert or something.
