I haven’t been posting much because Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG has been more fun. I play on server “The Shadowlands” if anybody is interested.
Military Judge COL Denise Lind announced this morning that she’s going to rule on Bradley Manning’s recent motion to dismiss all charges in his upcoming Court Martial, which is scheduled for May.It is highly unlikely that all charges will be dismissed. Military Justice practitioners with whom I have spoken would consider a partial dismissal to be a huge win for the defense. Far more likely is that any sentence would see a credit, should he be convicted of any crimes, not just for time served on a day for day basis, but possibly as many as ten days for every one day that she were to find were in violation of the law or DoD policy (which is essentially the same thing for the purposes of this discussion.)
We’ve started construction on the new house. 2100 square feet, 4bd, 3ba, 3car. Hopefully it will be done in May.
Open Thread, also too.
UPDATE: The following is added with respect to the hearing that is currently ongoing in Manning’s case:
” Today’s hearing focused on motions in limine and evidence of PFC Manning’s motivation in sending classified material to the Wikileaks website. The court also heard from the government on motions to preclude evidence that information PFC Manning provided to Wikileaks was over-classified.”
