Lt. Gen. Craig A. Franklin should be treated in the same way, though, as should ANY general officer who overturns convictions in sex offense cases without comment.

The whole military justice system needs reform, though. They should NOT be able to just set aside a verdict by fiat like this, it's utterly contrary to the standards of American justice.

After tomorrow and the growing Benghazi fiasco blossoms into a full fledged disaster for Barack, will the Barack presidency still be viable? After very possible impeachment proceedings we will have Biden in Charge? It's so horrible it's almost funny. Can you imagine Joe the dummy as our president? He'd probably do a better job than Barack has. That's what's so funny!
