He signed a contract with the military to give them four years long before he took his oath. He still owes them that time. His father is a liberal Democrat. As to the Constitution, didn't we pretty much agree it was already toilet paper?

Bush was given approval by Congress and the Senate to send troops to Iraq. I think in the Constitution there is that proviso that the CIC can deploy troops wherever he wants with approval of the Senate. It is separate from a declaration of war.

But here also is the rub. Watada is a newly hatched butterbar. Had he had ANY scruples about the war it would have been before he accepted his commission and not after.
He had plenty of time to change his mind. Indeed, he could have asked for a transfer to the Ghan but did not do so until he went public with his stand. His father is a liberal Democrat from Hawaii.

Were I the JAG office at Lewis, I would move for a change of venue and move the court martial to Iraq where all the witnesses are.
