German Deployment During Iraq War Ruled Illegal

Defense News
"Germany's highest court ruled May 7 that the decision to deploy German crews on NATO surveillance flights over Turkey during the Iraq war was illegal."
On one hand, this Court decision show the "checks and balances" at work. On the other hand though, the acknowledgement that
"The decision is unlikely to have any legal consequences for Schroeder or other members of his government..."
doesn't sound encouraging. (Note: photo above obtained via NATO)
