South Carolina Republican — a former JAG (military judge) — echoed the concerns of the Pentagon's legal team and signaled he won't rubberstamp the president's military tribunal plan. From the New York Times:
"It would be unacceptable, legally, in my opinion, to give someone the death penalty in a trial where they never heard the evidence against them." Trust us, You're guilty, We're going to execute you, but we can't tell you why? That's not going to pass muster, that's not necessary.
