New convening authority for military commissions

Retired Major General Vaughn A. Ary, formerly the top uniformed lawyer in the U.S. Marine Corps, has been named as convening authority for the military commissions. The Miami Herald's Carol Rosenberg (dean of the Guantanamo press corps) writes:
Ary's job includes deciding which charges to approve, potentially blessing plea agreements, assigning U.S. military officers to jury pools and deciding which trial experts and services to fund.
