Earlier today I was sent a copy of the letter from 27 retired and former Marine judge advocates to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees. The letter, with the enclosures, is available here.
The opening paragraph:
We, the undersigned, write to you as retired or former Marine Corps and Navy officers and judge advocates. We are greatly concerned that the Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James F. Amos, and one or more of his most senior legal advisers appear to have (1) deprived Marines of due process in military justice proceedings; (2) made misleading statements under oath about these activities; (3) engaged in abuse of the legal discovery process investigating this misconduct; and (4) endeavored to besmirch and disparage the reputation and career of the one Marine lawyer who, at great risk to his military career, did the right thing and reported all of this to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense. We ask that you commence a prompt investigation into these events, utilizing your oversight responsibilities to the fullest extent permitted by law.
