A gutsy chief military judge at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Army Col. James Pohl, takes a stand for the rule of law and the independence of the military judiciary.
“The Commission is unaware of how conducting an arraignment would preclude any option by the administration,” Pohl wrote in an opinion obtained by The Washington Post. “Congress passed the military commissions act, which remains in effect. The Commission is bound by the law as it currently exists, not as it may change in the future.”
“His Honor” is an apt title indeed for Col. Pohl.
