Seems she has not sent a recommendation. You state she has.
“Dasey, the military spokesman, sent along this statement on the case:
LTC Lakin waived his Article 32 hearing on 4 June 2010.
Once the Article 32 was waived, the charges were forwarded by Walter Reed commanding general with a recommendation as to disposition to MG Horst, the Military District of Washington Commander, on 8 June 2010.
It is now up to MG Horst, to determine if the case will go to court-martial and the level of court-martial. MG Horst could also decide that some other disposition is more appropriate than court-martial.
MG Horst is the General Court-Martial Convening Authority for Soldiers assigned to Walter Reed Army Medical Center.”
From the link you posted. Who the heck is Dasey?
Please post the press release from Walter Reed stating LTC Lakin’s Commander General forwarded the charges.
