The Army specialist who was accused of threatening superior officers in the military has been court marshaled in Kuwait. Specialist Marc. A. Hall had been imprisoned in Fort Stewart in Georgia since December, for dropping a song chastising the Armys possible decision to send him back to Iraq. Hall threatened to shoot officers in his rhymes and sent a copy of the song to the Pentagon. Hall will be tried in Kuwait because various witnesses in the case are deployed in the Middle East. A lawyer for Hall claimed the Army was making it difficult for Hall to present his own witnesses.
