Lead Guantanamo Prosecutor Quits

The military commissions in Guantanamo got messy again this week, after being shut down by federal court, ruled un-Constitutional by the Supremes, and re-authorized by Congress, shut down again by military court it has entered a new difficulty. The lead prosecutor, AF Col. Morris Davis has resigned over an issue of independence. AF Brig Gen Thomas Hartmann has asserted the right to supervise aspects of the prosecution as legal advisor to the administrator overseeing the trials.

McClatchy's Miami Herald has the story which is murky at best surrounded by the secrecy so prevalent in BushCo. Nobody is really talking other than Bryan Whitman, Pentagon spokesman, and that came down to Hartmann has the authority and no problems will ensue with Davis' resignation. Take your best guesses what's going on.
