The Voice of America reports:  A military court in the western U.S. state of Washington is set to try Calvin Gibbs, an American soldier accused of masterminding the brutal killings of Afghan civilians last year. Gibbs’ court martial is set to get under way on Friday.

What I find interesting from a radio program intended to extol American justice as part of its mission is:

In the months leading up to his court martial, U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs has refused to cooperate with military investigators. 

Query:  is VOA familiar with the Fifth Amendment or with Article 31, UCMJ? 

Fox News reports that while Gibbs begins trial Friday, so does CDR Wylie, former CO of USS MOMSEN.
