Speedy military justice in Afghanistan

In April, the Afghan National Army base at Mazar-e-Sharif was overrun by Taliban insurgents, leading to the deaths of 125 soldiers; another 64 were wounded. Military justice proceedings ensued against 26 officers, including two generals. Sentences ranged from one to three years in prison. Details here, in Spanish.

That's one speedy trial.
