Spinning the Military Tribunals

'A Mere Pretense of Legal Process'

Jonathan Turley makes the intriguing point that the review panel "will not be permitted to apply the U.S. Constitution or federal law. This creates the mere pretense of legal process. . . . The framers expressly denied the president the right to create and mete out his own form of justice. It takes more than a few rule changes to remove the 'kangaroo' from the court. One can shampoo and pedicure a kangaroo, but it does little to change the appearance of a president's own private menagerie of justice."
