Manning, Manning and more Manning in my Google News alert.  Here (WaPo) and here (AP).

News out of the Fayetteville Observer on the BGEN Jeffrey Sinclair court-martial, here:

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair’s sexual misconduct court-martial has been postponed until July, and a source close to the case said one of the pornography accusations against him has been dropped.

A pre-trial hearing for Sinclair is scheduled to begin today at the Fort Bragg courthouse. Three generals may testify this week.

Air Force Times reports, here, that a non-MTI rape case is set to begin at Joint Base San Antonio Lackland:

A court-martial will begin Tuesday for a recruiter accused of rape, sexual assault, indecent exposure and more than two dozen other counts involving 17 women, most of them Air Force applicants.

The trial for Tech. Sgt. Jaime Rodriguez was set to begin this morning at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, but was postponed one day, according to a news release from the base. . . .

He is accused of raping a recruiter assistant, plus seven other charges and a total of 30 specifications, including forcible sodomy, aggravated sexual contact, indecent conduct, obstruction of justice, making a false official statement and adultery. The charge sheet said Rodriguez allegedly used his position to try to gain sexual favors, lied about sending nude photos of himself and asked others to lie for him. . . .

The case against the recruiter is separate from the investigations of military training instructors at Lackland . . . .

And finally, more coverage of MAJ Hasan getting his wish to rep himself here (LA TImes).

    It appears Hasan is raising the defense of anticipatory self defense, which I believe was used to justify the invasion of Iraq.

    Thanks a lot.  Now I’ve got that damn Name Game song stuck in my head all day.
