New Chief Prosecutor for Military Commissions

DoD announced today that well-respected Army Brigadier General Mark Martins is taking over as the chief prosecutor for the military commissions.  He will bring unique, recent experience with rule of law initiatives in Afghanistan to the position.  Martins also had a hand in crafting some of the reforms enacted in the Military Commissions Act of 2009.  In the interim, USAF Col Mike O'Sullivan will serve as the acting chief prosecutor for OMC.  We look forward to working with both gentlemen.
