Apparently, the big bone of contention is whether a defendant should be able to see the prosecution's evidence. Congress says yes. Bush says no.
Of course those hard core lefties in the military agree with Congress.
Brig, Gen. James C. Walker, the top uniformed lawyer for the Marines, said that
no civilized country should deny a defendant the right to see the evidence
against him and that the United States 'should not be the first.
The quote reminded me of a congressional hearing I witnessed where all four JAG commanders testified. Each was asked the question, can we win the war on terror and still abide by the Geneva Convention? All four without hesitation answered yes. One went so far as to say he believed we could not win the war if we did not follow the Geneva Convention.
The military gets it. Why doesn't their Commander in Chief?
