Military justice

A new oxymoron.

A Brigadier General in charge defending the accused at Guantanamo was arrested on the order of a military judge.  The General’s crime: allowing other civilian defense attorneys to resign after it was discovered the Government had bugged the room where the attorneys met with their clients.

“Gitmo General Is Released,” The Wall Street Journal, November 4, 2017 A5.

But Bergdahl walks?

Do military judges have more power than either they think they have or that they should?  How do you govern without reliable enforcement?
