Wasn't Skorzeny found not guilty because an American commander had ordered something very similar, and they decided to interpret the law narrowly so that we would not have to (a) hang our man beside Skorzeny or (b) hold an obvious double standard? I have heard this story, but I do not have a source to verify it. If it is true, it should be included. -RR63 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:53, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Does not follow[edit]

"The issue of whether the donning of enemy uniforms in order to approach the enemy without drawing fire was within the laws of war was established ... In its judgement the Court noted that the case did not require that the Court make findings other than those of guilty or not guilty, so consequently no safe conclusion could be drawn from the acquittal of all accused.[1]"

How can the issue have been established if the court said explicitly that no conclusion could be drawn from its judgment? Jasonfward (talk) 11:15, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes, that needs rewriting. The link to the source was broken. I've fixed it so you can have look through it. Sean.hoyland - talk 16:25, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
