update on tribunals

OK, here is an update for my posting on tribunals. The news is really fresh, so the story is getting fuller by the minute. Check out this from the Washington Post:

Defense lawyers have criticized the process as stacked against them, but the military has said tribunals would offer full and fair trials.

Smith [Air Force Maj. John Smith, a lawyer who helped draft commission rules]said Monday's Supreme Court ruling made no difference to plans for the tribunals, which the military calls commissions.

"The Supreme Court right now doesn't directly affect military commissions at all," he said. "Everyone would like to move this cases forward as quickly as possible."

Unfucking believable.
