Four AWACS crew members who are being held partially responsible for the downing of two U.S. helicopters in Iraq indicated that they'll fight the charges. In statements released to The Daily Oklahoman, all denied criminal conduct in the tragedy that claimed the lives of 26 people. The Air Force has accused the AWACS crew members of failing to tell F-15 pilots who shot down the helicopters the aircraft was American. One of the jet pilots has been charged with negligent homicide.
