Andrew Cohen has good entry on his blog at The Washington Post.
White House to Military Lawyers: Keep Quiet
”Here is another terrible idea from the Bush administration: The White House now wants to politicize the promotions process for attorney-soldiers. To uniformed lawyers who often put the rule of law ahead of their own interests, the message is as clear as it is cynical and short-sighted: If you want a promotion, stop criticizing U.S. policy in court, no matter how legally flawed it may be.“
In other words, they want to pick lawyers the way the FAA picks supervisors -- don’t criticize us no matter how unsafe a policy might be.
It’s hard to believe anyone is running for President. From sub prime mortgages to the military to the FAA to Iraq...How would you like to be the person cleaning up this mess ?
