Points of interest to military justice from the current General Counsel to the Department of Defense:’

Development of the rules of practice and procedure for Military Commissions.  The Department regularly consults with and takes input from defense counsel involved in the Commissions and GitMo related matters.

This would be a better practice, and IMHO shows the DOD Joint Service Committee on Military Justice how it ought to be done. 

“This administration is a great believer in transparency.”

The DODJSC process continues to be a process done largely behind closed doors with little if no record of its work, deliberations, and recommendations.  This practice differs from practice in the federal courts process.  See Federal Rulemaking (in federal courts).
