    A FORMER ARMY PROSECUTOR HAS BEEN COURT-MARTIALED AND SENTENCED TO 20 YEARS AT THE DB . THE CHARGE WAS “RAPE.” BUT HAS REASON TO BELIEVE MAJ ERIK BURRIS WAS RAILROADED. IN FACT, JAG’S OWN FEMALE INVESTIGATING OFFICER REPORTS ESTRANGED WIFE’S CLAIMS “EMBELLISHED, UNTRUTHFUL, FABRICATED.” BY Glenn MacDonald, Major USARMY (Ret) It was a terse, five-line press release out of Fort Bragg issued later in the day. The handout from the Army spokesperson, a MAJ Boring (we know of another flak called “Bunko” who does spin for the Air Force), said a former prosecutor – MAJ Erik J. Burris –...

    First Lieutenant Clint Lorance never imagined that following the rule of engagement to save not only his life, but the lives of his fellow soldiers against Islamic enemies would result in him spending nearly two decades in prison. But it did. Lorance, 30, had been trained to make split-second decisions and his training culminated in a real-life scenario in July 2012 when he and his squad were on a foot patrol in southern Afghanistan. He had just been made Platoon Leader after his predecessor had been severely wounded. At that time, Lorance led his troops into a Taliban-infested territory, where...

    An unusual government search of Marine Corps defense attorneys’ offices at California’s Camp Pendleton could cast a cloud over dozens of criminal cases. The search May 2, which lasted about two and a half hours, included investigators opening more than 100 case files compiled by defense attorneys, Marine Corps officers say. The search went beyond what was necessary and exceeded applicable legal standards, officers think.

    The Post & Email ^ | Sept. 23, 2010 | James H. Roberson
    Lt. Col. Lakin (M.D.- Active Army) -- first asked the Army to affirm that Obama was constitutionally eligible to serve as President, and when his chain of command refused, he then refused to deploy to Afghanistan until "eligibility" was established (to force the issue to a head). Lakin’s argument is simple and direct: a soldier must not be compelled to obey an "unlawful order"; an "ineligible person" cannot serve as President and Commander-in-Chief and, thus, cannot issue "lawful orders." He has thereby laid his liberty and whole career on the line in order to honor his Oath to Support and...

    The first of three Navy SEALs to face a courts martial, Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas, was cleared of all charges by a military jury early Thursday. The court martial began Wednesday for two of the three Navy SEALs accused of mistreating Abed, mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater security guards in Fallujah in 2004. "It's a big weight off my shoulders," Huertas told as he left the courtroom. Hertas said he plans to continue his military carreer and is going home to “kiss my wife.” Defense lawyers in the Baghdad court martial of two...

    Law: American heroes are arraigned for allegedly punching a terrorist in wartime. What happens to Tiger Woods isn't vital to our country's future. What happens to Matthew McCabe, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe is. People are more likely to recognize the names of Tiger's alleged bimbo eruptions than the names of these three Navy SEALs we sent into battle. They are not household names in a nation consumed with Climate Gate, the public option and the antics of billionaire athletes. An administration consumed with apologies has said the architect of 9/11's massacre, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, must be given all the...

    War On Terror: As Khalid Sheikh Mohammed receives the benefits of U.S. justice, three Navy SEALs face court-martial for allegedly punching a captured terrorist who hanged Americans from a bridge in Fallujah. Apparently our efforts to impress the world about the marvels of our criminal justice system require us to give foreign terrorists such as Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the man who invented the manned cruise missiles that flew into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and plowed into a Pennsylvania field on its way to the Capitol Building, the full rights and protections of the American citizens he conspired...

    Marine free after conviction tossed out Rape charge led to decade in prison By Rick Rogers (Contact) Union-Tribune Staff Writer 2:00 a.m. March 14, 2009 Brian Foster After spending a decade behind bars, a former Camp Pendleton Marine is now a free man because a military appeals court ruled that “a muddled, hearsay-based case” caused his spousal-rape conviction. But anyone who thinks Brian Foster is bitter would be wrong. As Foster left the prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., on Feb. 20, he picked up his sergeant stripes and spoke candidly with his superiors. “I told (them) I was happy to...

    A few weeks ago, I suggested hypothetically that active military might have standing to bring a class action to question Obama’s POTUS eligibility. After reviewing various sections of the Uniform Code of Military Justice pointed out to me by various readers, I came to the conclusion that such a law suit would probably not only fail, but would also subject soldiers to potential court martial.

    Actor Gary Graham knew that by writing about his personal experience and rejection of abortion, he would be incurring the ire of not a few among the Hollywood elite. Yet a blog column posted last Tuesday by the seasoned actor, known most recently for his roles as Ambassador Soval in the TV series "Star Trek: Enterprise" and Capt. Ingles on "J.A.G.", took an unflinching look at truths almost entirely ignored by those in the Hollywood establishment. "I’m going to say what millions know in the front of their brains, and many, many more millions know in the depths of their...

    Secret evidence. Denial of habeas corpus. Evidence obtained by waterboarding. Indefinite detention. The litany of complaints about the treatment of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay is long, disturbing and by now familiar. Nonetheless, a new wave of shock and criticism greeted the Pentagon's announcement on February 11 that it was charging six Guantánamo detainees, including alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, with war crimes--and seeking the death penalty for all of them. Now, as the murky, quasi-legal staging of the Bush Administration's military commissions unfolds, a key official has told The Nation that the trials have been rigged from the start....

    The Bush administration is pushing to take control of the promotions of military lawyers, escalating a conflict over the independence of uniformed attorneys who have repeatedly raised objections to the White House's policies toward prisoners in the war on terrorism. The administration has proposed a regulation requiring "coordination" with politically appointed Pentagon lawyers before any member of the Judge Advocate General corps - the military's 4,000-member uniformed legal force - can be promoted. A Pentagon spokeswoman did not respond to questions.... But the requirement of coordination - which many former JAGs say would give the administration veto power over any...

    11/14/2007 - SOUTHWEST ASIA (AFPN) -- A fair justice system, which holds people accountable for their actions, is vital in stopping the violence in Iraq, said the Air Force's top judge advocate general recently during a tour of Southwest Asia. Maj. Gen. Jack L. Rives visited the men and women of the 386th Air Expeditionary Wing during a tour here and also visited Airmen at Camp Bucca, Iraq. A part of his mission was to ensure the members of the JAG corps have the right programs in place to properly categorize the detainees, and to help assure fair processes are...

    CAMP PENDLETON -- Prosecutors are contesting a recommendation that murder charges be dropped against Marine Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich for his role in the slaying of 24 civilians in the Iraqi city of Haditha in 2005. Statements from two Marines who testified against Wuterich should be sufficient to send the case to trial on some or all of the 17 murder charges he faces, multiple sources who have seen the prosecutor's arguments said Tuesday. Earlier this month, the investigating officer in Wuterich's case, Lt. Col. Paul Ware, recommended that all the murder accusations be dismissed. His recommendations in cases of...

    The government is preparing to release photographic evidence to support its assertion that 15 UK sailors seized by Iran were not in Iranian waters. The BBC's Nick Robinson says the government is ready to switch from private to public diplomacy with Iran. Tony Blair has talked of a "different phase" of the dispute and hinted at a more aggressive diplomatic approach. The sailors and marines from HMS Cornwall were captured on Friday after searching a boat in the northern Gulf. The BBC's political editor Nick Robinson said preparations are in place for a news conference at the Ministry of Defence...

I am tired of senior officers and commanders who fight this war with more of an eye on the media than on the enemy, who desperately needs killing. I am tired of the decisions of Sergeants and Privates made in...
