Obama to continue use of military tribunals
The Obama administration has announced it will restart the controversial Bush military tribunal system. The tribunal system has been widely criticized and a number of prosecutors have resigned their positions due to ethical concerns. For more information on this you can do a search for news items, particularly on the case of Army Lt. Col. Darrell Vandeveld who announced he resigned because he had grave doubts about the integrity of the system. For articles on this go here, here and here.
