    Virginia Citizen's Defense League ^ | 10/04/2005 | Philip Van Cleave
    The Virginia Citizens Defense League is non-partisan. We are only asking all the candidates to take a position on specific issues of concern to Virginia's gun owners, so that gun owners might make an informed choice. We believe this to be a reasonable request, and remain perplexed by the hostility that this has generated from the Kilgore campaign.

    The following is a summary of facts about the new tribunal that was circulated last week at a DoD school for DoD lawyers as an educational hand-out. I believe "CPA" stands for Coalition Provisional Authority, which right now is Ambassador Bremer. I post the contents of the hand-out verbatim: Facts about Iraqi Special Tribunal [IST] - created on 12/10/2003 by Iraqi Governing Council - statue drafted by committee established by the Governing Council, advised by Coalition and other international law experts experienced with working with the tirbunals established to deal with atrocities in the former Yugoslavia, East Timor, and Sierra...
