    In other news, Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott says 1st Lt Kelly Flinn is being “badly abused” and other members of congress, including Senator Slade Gorton, attacked the Pentagon’s handling of her case.

    The military justice system is from time to time a convenient tool for members of the opposition party to score political points. Rep. Burton isn’t exactly blazing new trails here.

    Before he starts throwing ethical grenades, he should get his facts straight. The CA told the Honorable(?) Congressman that the allegation arose from a fellow servicemember, not the detainee. Politicians make me want to puke.
