Transparency watch

Remember that Oregon National Guardsman who posted anti-immigrant comments on social media? He's received disciplinary action, but the authorities won't say what it was. This is ridiculous. The case raises an issue of free speech -- regardless of how it ought to be resolved -- and the public ought to be able to know specifically what the charges were, whether he received nonjudicial punishment or, perhaps, a summary court-martial -- how he pleaded, and what the punishment was.
