End of military commissions?
My, I'm late getting things up here. Here's a link to the piece I did last week for Antiwar.com elaborating quite a bit more than in the Register editorial on issues surrounding the military commission verdict in Hamdan's case. I'm inclined to give the judge and the jury props for trying to run a reasonably fair trial despite the rules that they could have followed more scrupulously that rig the proceeding completely against the defendant. I think their 5-1/2-year sentence is a slap ion the face to the administration -- well-deserved.
