"But American military justice law, which is the model for the military commission rules, bars members of the armed services who are facing capital charges from pleading guilty. Partly to assure fairness when execution is possible, court-martial prosecutors are required to prove guilt in a trial even against service members who want to plead guilty."

Wow. That is the one thing the military really got right. It would be nive if they did that in the normal U.S. criminal court system. They you wouldn't have all this bullshit plea-bargaing going on that often ends up putting innocent people in jail.

But to thew point of of your post, yeah, that shit is really messed up.
