    And.........after a year you STILL haven't answered the questions started on page 7 resulting from more bullshit posted and never retracted.

    If it were earlier in the day that would have earned a screen snarf of tea.

    Oh wait.....maybe he will give us his famous "Tell it to the crickets" retort......such sharp wit....I just can't deal with it.

    To my knowledge, he hasn't pled guilty yet. Quite the opposite, he's called up roughly 50 witnesses in his defense, most of which have been rejected by the investigating officer - raising some eyebrows in both the defense and the public.

    This is a show trial, something one would expect to see in 1960 Moscow.

    You need to start on page 7 (I think) and you will see that Corny decided what was plead a long time ago.

    And I can't imagine why the judge objected to a list of witnesses that included President Obama and Secretary Clinton.

    Okay... and how about the other 37 witnesses denied?

    And I did not realize politicians are exempt from appearing in court.

    Come on Joe........that list is a political stunt. I know you grasp that. It is tried in almost every case with political undertones and fails in most of them.

    I want this kid (a broken kid in my opinion) to get a fair trail. What I don't want is for it to turn into some pulpit to promote some agenda. Either the kid committed the crimes or he didn't. Well more accurately, the DoD can prove he committed the crimes or they can't. The rest is just fluff.

    Obviously you haven't noticed that I've not asked you to retract any of your garbage. The simple reason why I haven't is that I have better things to do with my time than worry about the quality of what you say on a forum. When you say something that I consider assinine, that I know you aren't going to want to change, I simply pass on to the next post. You are the one who likes to deflect, flame, and derail the flow of discussion, not me. And that is all I have to say on this topic.

    We have had our share of show trials on this side of the Atlantic. The Rosenberg Trial comes to mind, as does the McCarthy Hearings. More recently, the Mai Lai Massacre Court-martial was mostly Show. General Court-martials tend to be that way by design because they normally send all controversial issues to that venue.
