Judgment Week continues.
Within a week we may have resolution of three of the most high profile courts martial in the last decade.

Another high profile court martial case is awaiting a decision. MAJ Nidal Hasan expedited that process by not making a closing argument and allowing members to begin deliberations after hearing only the trial counsel’s version of events, AP report here and CNN coverage here.

SSGT Robert Bales apologized for his actions Thursday at a sentencing hearing to determine if he will be eligible for parole, LA Times report here. Closing arguments are Friday and deliberations will likely begin today.

AP via WRAL has this summary of the Manning case key elements and next steps.
