Fire At Will (Stranger Than Fiction)

PFC William Robinson was killed Friday, August 8, 2008 outside of Basrah in an incident of Friendly Fire when his commander, Lt. Zachary Smith gave his troops the order to “fire at will.”  Robinson, 22 affectionately known as Will to his friends and family never saw it coming.  Lt. Smith could not be reached for comment, and the Pentagon has yet to release a statement.

The irony was lost on Robinson’s father, John, who is planning to file a lawsuit against the army as well as Lt. Zachary Smith whose order according to John Robinson, “was at the very least irresponsible, and at worst just plain malicious.  “He should have forseen the possibility that something like this could happen,” Don West, attorney for the family said in a statement this morning.
