Speedy trial in Ireland -- not!

One of the claims often heard in favor of trials by court-martial is that military justice moves more swiftly than civilian justice.

Maybe the country's civilian courts take their time, but it is hard to imagine a case moving more slowly than this one. Click here for a report on yesterday's testimony in the case.
