The attempt to seat a panel in United States v. Sinclair continues.
Military Times reports that there were three seated with three pending voir dire and potential challenge. Military Times posits that the Army may seek members, say from the Air Force which is sort of co-located at Fort Bragg. The piece also mentions that members must be senior to the accused. (This looks to be the most current article, no telling what happened Friday.)
I wonder if R.C.M. 912(f)(1)(K) might be relevant to the discussion of members senior to the accused. Could the Army in fact detail O-7’s to the next tranche of potential members without going outside the Army? At what point can the Army say that we have exhausted the number of available senior general officers and we need to go with brigadiers, or even some senior colonels?
Charlie, you out there. What happened with SGMA McKinney on that?
