5. Gotta like this line at the end of the guardian article.
The Article 32 hearing then makes a recommendation to a general as to whether to proceed to a full trial.

In the military the prosecuting officers and those that oversee the article 32 hearing answer directly to the commanding general who decides when and if they get promoted.
Military justice is pure bullshit. An obvious conflict of interest. Someone like Bradley Manning is at at the whim of the military political wind. And that wind literally blows.
There is no justice in a military regime. You are at the mercy of the dictatorship that is the military. All military are dictatorships. Your rights don't exist when you join.
You are considered government property.
