Prosecutorial Discretion 

The wheels are coming off the bus:
A third US military prosecutor has walked out of the commissions process set up to try Guantanamo Bay detainees because of concerns it was unfair, the ABC [Australia] has learned....

Air Force Captain Carrie Wolf chose to take a reassignment along with other prosecutors.

Capt Wolf asked to leave the Office of Military Commissions at the same time as two other colleagues, Major Robert Preston and Captain John Carr....

The ABC has also been able to speak to an Air Force judge advocate-general who was closely involved with the military commissions while these problems were unfolding.

He supports the process and agrees with the Pentagon's characterisation that a total breakdown in personal relationships led to misunderstandings.

Odd that the Australian media is covering this story, while the domestic bobbleheads are MIA.
