Yet another travesty and gross hypocrisy. This thread is especially relevent in light of the one that delves into the actions of Scott Ritter and the active support, both financial and otherwise, from various individuals, including Jimmah Carter, in his Anti-American activities. This guy get a BCD and Ritter gets a pass with a reward. The thread is:

Judge Friedman wrote in his 35-page decision that trying to sort out whether the president had ceded too much authority to foreign military officers "would involve policy determinations beyond the competence of the court," the Sun reported.
Shouldn't he have recused himself if he is not competent to judge on the subject?

***Michael O'Hanlon, a military analyst at the Brookings Institution, contended the president's authority to defend America would be weakened if New prevailed.
"You'd be undercutting our ability to work with our allies. You'd also be weakening the power of the commander in chief of the United States," he said. ***
I'd like to know just HOW the above would be true.

President Bush should encourage Congress to pass a law stating that our armed forces are to uphold the constitution of the United States and only the United states reporting only to the POTUS.
Who would have ever thought that our armed forces are subjected to a world order NGO communist, pro-abortion organization and forced to wear their uniform parts.

Funny how Ginzy, and Sandra and Souter have such a 'jones' for international norms, but Friedman somehow can't decide if an American soldier should not be forced to don the uniform of some corrupt stateless entity?

I think we are nearly unanimous in our opinion that US soldiers should never be under foreign control, or serve the flag of another nation, and CERTAINLY NOT the UN, but there is one final consideration to be taken into account.
Our troops undergo the best combat training in the world. They are highly motivated and dedicated warriors. To dress them up in baby blue hats (of FRENCH derivation, no less) is a supreme insult and demeans their status as the worlds most fearsome fighting force.
It's also unforgivably bad fashion sense.

I know I am going to get flamed on this, but... It appears he knew what he was doing and was going against the direct orders of his superiors. He took the risk that he would be punished for his actions, and that is what happened. I am in full agreement with him, but at the same time, he was disobeying orders.

Of all the appropriate adjectives being thrown around on this thread the most powerful one to describe this is "unconstitutional".
