NIMJ to Senate Judiciary Committee: shut down military commissions and send cases to Article III courts

The National Institute of Military Justice today sent this letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Excerpt:

Whatever the merits of military commissions’ original establishment, neither this Committee nor the public can ignore their failure over numerous presidential administrations to achieve justice. The Americans who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001 are, after 20 years, especially entitled to closure. It is time to turn out the lights on the military commissions and transfer their few remaining cases to Article III courts.
