More Gitmo Perfidy

From Yahoo News:

"The U.S. military's chief prosecutor for the Guantanamo war crimes trials has resigned, the Pentagon said on Friday

Air Force Col. Moe Davis asked to be moved to another post after the Pentagon rejected his complaint that another official should not be supervising his work, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said.

Davis had complained to the Defense Department that Air Force Brig. Gen. Thomas Hartmann, the legal adviser to the Convening Authority -- a body responsible for running the trials -- should not be supervising his work, Whitman said."

Well, isn't that nice? The chief prosecutor for the war crime tribunals, that have been repeatedly slammed by experts worldwide for being an illegal and immoral sham, has resigned in disgust over the fact that he was being subjected to undue command influence by the convening authority. The US authorities are not concerned however (of course not) and say they will press on happily without Col. Davis. Just more evidence that the Bush Administration is genetically incapable of doing anything honestly, competently or morally.
