The Government is has rested their principal case in US v Manning.
I don’t know if the Defense will start to present their case tomorrow, or if they’ll wait until Monday or if there will be a session on Friday.
MAJ Nidal Hassan’s capital Court-Martial is set to start soon. He will be defending himself. Due to a quirk in the UCMJ, he (MAJ Hassan) cannot plead ‘guilty’ to a capital charge, but can only be found either ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’ of the capital charge. The available punishments for a capital conviction under the UCMJ are Life Without Parole or Death by lethal injection. The Government has already stated their intent to prosecute him and seek the death penalty if they get a conviction.
Also too, an open thread
Oh, and one more thing–for the current crop of racists and other winger fuckwits trying over and over again to post things in dead threads–the automod kicks in after the thread has been inactive for a while, and it does it to everybody as an anti-spam feature. But if I see you trying to post in the Creepy ass Cracker thread that “Trayvon was the REAL racist!” I’m not going to un-mod you. And while I haven’t talked to any of the others, I don’t expect they will feel any differently than me. If you don’t have the balls to post in active threads, then you probably shouldn’t be posting here at all.
