|Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand|
The Albany Times-Union has run this editorial on the controversy concerning whether the Pentagon misled Congress in connection with the proposal to shift charging powers away from non lawyer commanders and to independent prosecutors. Excerpt:
If it turns out the Pentagon misled Congress to defeat the bill, those responsible should be disciplined, and the bill brought back up for a new vote.
As Sen. [Kirsten] Gillibrand has said, it's not a matter of "if" this bill will be passed — only "when."
That "when" should be now.
