What the Hell is taking so long with this trial? I thought UCMJ was supposed to be swift and severe.

The UCMJ as written is rather clear. The problem is that a defendant is entitled to representation by a civilian lawyer if he wants one, and this a--hole can afford better lawyers than the Army has to prosecute. In general, the military routinely gets its ass kicked in court for this reason.
