  •  It's not yet at the level of the CinC. (8+ / 0-)

    Decisions are still waiting to be made at the level of Congress via legislation that will change the UCMJ (so feel free to call your Senators and have them support Claire McCaskill's legislation) or at the level of the DoD and Secretary Hagel, who can chose to remove General Franklin. I am unsure of the legalities surrounding Lt. Col. Wilkerson - he's already been tried, convicted, and the conviction overturned. I think that it isn't possible to re-try the case nor even review it again. But hopefully we'll find out more soon.

    •  Might be worthwhile to write to / call Sec. Hagel (3+ / 0-)

      I thought Leon Panetta had done a better job of looking out for the troops. Silly me.
