Speech Envy?

You might remember that in March I brought to your attention this great speech by Colonel Tim Collins of the Royal Irish Regiment. As fine a speech as any I have ever read. President Bush liked it as well: He hung it on his wall. Well, it turns out that Collins is accused of ill-treating Iraqi soldiers and civilians. It seems that Americans (not Iraqis) are making the accusations. This story from Australia may shed some light on the matter. I hope the accusation is not true. If false, shame on us.

Both links relating to the Irish commander have exactly the same material--hhis speech from NPR. But no article from Australia about the charges against him.
