A Marine platoon in Iraq takes fire from a hospital (which Iraqi forces have turned into a bunker), and they call in a strike from two carrier-based F-14 Tomcats. The strike destroys the hospital and kills 32 civilians. The Athens Bar Association (in Greece) files a complaint in the International Criminal Court against the President, the SecNav, and others, alleging war crimes and crimes against humanity. The SecNav calls for a team of expert litigators, so the admiral sends Harm, Mac, and Bud. During the trial, at The Hague, a Marine officer (a witness) saves the SecNav from an assailant wielding a knife. The trial turns out well. Mike babysits with little A.J., and A.J. gets away from him in a game arcade, and Mike eventually finds him. Bud returns home early, due to the disappearance, and he creates a scene between him and Mike. Written by DocRushing
