In June of 2006, Army Lt. Ehren Watada refused to deploy to Iraq, saying he was following his conscience and upholding his duty not to obey illegal orders.
Lt. Watada, is now facing court-martial and a maximum of 8 1/2 years in a military prison if convicted of all seven counts against him, which include disloyalty and conduct unbecoming of an officer. Lt. Watada is the first commissioned officer to refuse duty in Iraq. By invoking the Nuremberg Principles in his defense, he is essentially forcing the military justice system to rule on the legality of the war itself.
