Major Hasan on trial at NPR

As CAAFLog has pointed out, it appears that Major Hasan will be tried by media.

Someone at the National Capital Consortium, Psychiatry Residency Program, Walter Reed Army Medical Center has released a letter to the Credentials Committee.  No word on the WRAMC AR 15-6 into this unauthorized disclosure.

One of the common “defenses” raised at trial is that the accused is a "Good Soldier.”  Assuming evidence of this, usually through character witnesses and documents, the military judge is required to instruct the members that a “Good Soldier” defense can if believed and warranted be sufficient to create reasonable doubt at court-martial.

The disclosed letter does not appear helpful to a good soldier defense at court-martial, for Major Hasan at Fort Hood.
