A military jury in San Diego acquits a Navy SEAL of charges that he beat an Iraqi prisoner, and of lying about what happened. Lieutenant Andrew Ledford was found innocent of all charges. The prisoner later died in CIA custody at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Ledford was not charged with the prisoner's death.
