Prof. Witt's review of "Court-Martial"

Prof. John Fabian Witt
Yale Law School's Professor John Fabian Witt has this review of Chris Bray's "Court-Martial" in the Wall Street Journal. He comments:
The court-martial does not reflect our nation’s deepest values. It sidesteps them, based on the view, right or wrong, that justice and due process must give way to discipline if we want to field a military force capable of defending the nation. Military justice is not merely a different kind of justice. It is justice mixed with military discipline, which means that, from the Constitution’s perspective, it is justice compromised.
