Update: JAG

The White House has dropped its attempt at banana republicking the armed forces' JAG.

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is dropping a plan to take control over the promotions of military lawyers, following an outpouring of alarm over the independence of uniformed attorneys who have repeatedly objected to the White House's policies toward prisoners in the war on terrorism.

But this troubles me:

"In light of the feedback that [Haynes] received, he thought that it was wiser to try a different approach," Morrell said.

"different approach". That makes me nervous - obviously the Bush Adm will try another route to reach the same goal.

Constant vigilance!
