Mr. Watada supposedly offered to resign his commission, but due to stop loss, the Army refused.

Now, EW had some naive hope that he could use his court martial to challenge the legality of the war and its constitutionality. Congress and the Senate have spoken by voting to send troops under Bush's command to Iraq.

Like I said, I made my objections to Iraq known to my reps.
And I was the wife of an active duty officer. I have the right to free speech. He does not while he wears the uniform.

And no, my objections weren't based on some media hype or constitutional mandates. It was based solely on the fact that we needed to get bin Laden. The letters I got from my reps were ones supporting the invasion based on Saddam's ties to terrorists (which have been proven), WsMD, etc.
