Congress especially created and stewards those military proceedings that give legislative life to environments poisonous to our Constitution. In those courts-martial, military commissions and tribunals where military governors thrive--but deadly to juries and innocence;
GUILT is a living thing!
IN CONGRESS (AS AN ACT OF ATTAINDER)
PROVIDED BY CONGRESS FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF
AND EVERY SURROGATE COMMANDING OFFICER
EVER EXISTING AND CURRENTLY A MATTER OF
DEFENSE DEPARTMENT POLICY
"...the essence of all military proceedings is summary and vigorous action, and moreover, courts-martial are no part the Judiciary of the United States, are not even courts..., but are, in peace as well as in war, simply bodies of military men ordered to investigate accusations, arrive at facts, and--where just--recommend [to the President of the United States (POTUS) as Commander-in-Chief (CINC)] a punishment [the POTUS/CINC should award to the affected person(s) like U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Kevin Holt, Marine Sergeant Lawrence G. Hutchins, III, and Army RANGER, Staff Sergeant Raymond L. Girouard].
"...In the absence, therefore, of [constitutional protections, no military proceeding] can scarcely be held bound to the same strict adherence [to the United States Constitution] as are the true courts of the United States [created under the Constitution's Article III] and upon [military punishment ceremonies (be they courts-martial, tribunals, or commissions), the bodies of military men ordered by the CINC/POTUS to investigate accusations, arrive at facts, and--where just--recommend punishment] may properly be allowed [to ignore the Constitution and its protections against government tyranny] to pursue a more liberal course in regard to the administration of testimony and the examination of witnesses...
"Courts-martial are not courts, but are, in fact [POTUS/CINC expressions] of the executive power provided by Congress for the President as Commander-in-Chief to aid [the CINC] in properly commanding [the armed forces of the United States] and enforcing discipline therein, and utilized under [POTUS/CINC] orders...they are indeed, creatures of orders [that are unconstrained, unbounded, and completely free to ignore THE CONSTITUTION and each of the constitutional protections against government protection and tyranny]."
former U.S. Army Judge Advocate General
"[The POTUS/CINC wants] to get at the fact (no matter how) for the sake of discipline [and to that end,]...THERE IS NO BETTER WITNESS AGAINST A MAN THAN HIMSELF!"
Samuel T. Ansell
Former U.S. Army Judge Advocate General
(in paraphrase quoting a distinguished British officer/practitioner of the Roman Code)
The Defense Department policy narrated above are the processes by which ALL SERVICE MEMBERS, civilians, and foreign nationals are brought to U.S. military hearing rooms--UNARMED--to discover what the President of the United States/Commander-in-Chief will decide upon receipt of those recommendations received from his surrogate commanders, who are under the CINC's orders.
