Obama Issues EXECUTIVE ORDER amending COURT MARTIAL RULES! | Before It’s News

September 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

resident Obama signed an Executive Order that amends the Manual for Courts-Martial on August 31, 2010. The cover document is on the White House website, but the text of the changes is still neither there nor on the Federal Register, DoD websites nor the Library of Congress’ Manuals for Courts-Martial as of 10:30 9/7/2010. The amendments take effect on September 30, 2010.

Does anyone have any idea what the changes are that are made by this document? And, will the changes affect Ltc. Terry Lakin’s case? I’ve checked JAG websites and bloggers don’t seem to know what the changes are either.
