This is the 12th day that APF, LTC Lakin’s support site, has failed to post the military judge’s findings and conclusions, and advertises as “Breaking News,”  “Judge to Rules (sic) . . ..”

SFExaminer.com reports:

A Fort Stewart soldier charged with killing two members of his Army unit in 2008 is due back in court for a hearing on whether the military should pay for his defense team to travel to Iraq. . . . to interview Iraqi witnesses and investigated the crime scene.

For various reasons the issue of homosexuality and DADT has been in the news for a while.  The results of the various surveys to servicemembers and familys are still pending.

I. WHETHER THE MILITARY JUDGE’S COMMENTS ON THE RECORD AND DURING THE “BRIDGING THE GAP” DISCUSSIONS WITH COUNSEL REFLECT AN ACTUAL BIAS AGAINST THE APPELLANT’S SEXUAL ORIENTATION, RESULTING IN THE MILITARY JUDGE’S DISQUALIFICATION FROM PRESIDING OVER APPELLANT’S COURT-MARTIAL?

I previously posted about this but here is a more detailed Navy Times report about CSM Crump, formerly of WRAMC.

World News Daily has a piece on LTC Lakin’s OER issue.  The piece seems to accept without question or fact-check the allegation that the, “Army convicted me without trial.”  It would seem a proper journalistic analysis would review the actual report (still publically unavailable) and review in comparison to AR 623-3 .

Stars & Stripes reports.

Reversing an earlier decision, the Air Force said Monday it intends to discharge a lesbian Air Force officer who had remained in the military despite openly declaring her homosexuality.

An Air Force general earlier this year concluded that Lt. Robin R. Chaurasiya should not be discharged, saying she had declared her sexual orientation for the purpose of avoiding military service.
