    I feel for the military defense counsel assigned to trail this clown car.

    Kinda like being second mate on the Titanic…you know you are going down, and there is nothing you can do about it but enjoy the band.

    NBC is backing off ‘will be’ and now says ‘may be forced to’.

    “The Army may be forced to court-martial a lieutenant colonel who refused to deploy…”

  6. Some Army Guy says:

    How do “Army officials” know what “the Army” is going to do? “The Army” doesn’t court-martial Soldiers; commanders do, exercising their independent discretion.

    Well, it will not be the CA v. LTC Lakin, it will be the U.S. v. LTC Lakin.

    I’m sorry, I preferred the MSNBC story that reported that his CO, Col. Roberts, had “won” the Medal of Honor. Guess he bought more tickets at the raffle.

  9. Sophist says:

    Referring to honors earned in combat as having been ‘won’ is a pretty standard turn of phrase.
