6. Article 134 of the UCMJ

Article 134. General article:
Though not specifically mentioned in this chapter, all disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces, all conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces, and crimes and offenses not capital, of which persons subject to this chapter may be guilty, shall be taken cognizance of by a general, special, or summary court-martial, according to the nature and degree of the offense, and shall be punished at the discretion of that court.

 10 U.S.C. 934


Or to summarize- "We can charge you with anything not specifically mentioned in any other Article"

In this specific case it would be failure to report an action prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the unit. If the person involved is not of sufficient rank within the chain of command to immediately provide discipline they would be expected to report it up the chain of command.
