No, MSgt Timothy Hennis is not actually seeking Nigerian High Court review of his case.  But I found it interesting that the Nigerian High Court decided that retired service members are not amenable to court-martial jurisdiction.  Report here.  If anyone can get their hands on a copy of the decision I’ll post it for our fringe readers.

This link provides an glimpse into how some parts of our country that don’t post on this blog (at least not frequently) think about the PFC Bradley Manning case.  This quote from beginning of the story about sums about the tenor of the article:

Last week, Representative Mike Rogers called for the execution of military whistleblower, Private Bradley Manning. His crime? Sharing the “Collateral Murder” video and the classified Afghanistan “war logs” with Wikileaks, which exposed the truth behind the failing war in Afghanistan, Pakistan’s cooperation with the Taliban, and potential war crimes.

    1. ISI link to terrorism is not new. Neither is anything else in the leaks.

    2. No one cares what that guy thinks. Alabama would probably suck less if he spent that energy doing something useful for his constituents.

    Michigan. Even better.

    Thanks for the allAfrica.com link, No Man. It will indeed be interesting to read the text of the Nigerian decision. Military jurisdiction over retirees is a persistent human rights fault line. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights has repeatedly disapproved it.
