Your entries in the 2007 military justice story of the year contest confirmed that 2007 was a rather unexciting year in military justice land.
The best suggestion was that of the No Man, who thought that the series of acquittals and convictions with light sentences in Iraq war crimes cases was the story of the year. There is actually a growing body of academic commentary criticizing the military justice system not as a ham handed tool of military commanders (the prevailing attack in the pre-Solorio era), but rather as a benighted system that undervalues the lives of foreign civilians and fails to hold servicemembers responsible for war crimes.
The second best suggestion was that the story of the year is the new Article 120, which has been confusing military justice practitioners worldwide since 1 October 2007.
BUT both of those suggestions were made after the contest’s deadline had passed. So the t-shirt goes to JO’C, who has the distinction of being the ONLY person to make a non-anonymous suggestion before the contest ended. JO’C, what size t-shirt would you like?
