"Back in 2002, a master's degree candidate at the Naval War College wrote a paper on the Bush administration's plan to use military commissions to try Guant?namo suspects, concluding that 'even a good military tribunal is a bad idea.' It drew little notice at the time, but the paper has gained a second life because of its author's big promotion: Col. Ralph H. Kohlmann of the Marines is now the chief judge of the military commissions at the naval base in Guant?namo Bay, Cuba." (Free Reg. Req.) Why is this man in the military? He has obviously missed his calling...surely he was born to be in Congress, perhaps even the Oval Office...Has no one told him that blatant hypocrisy pays much better in politics than in the ranks?
