Military Tribunals – A Few Good Men - Episode 44
Ever wonder how enemy combatants who commit war crimes are prosecuted? They’re tried in Military Courts and these trials are known as Military Tribunals. Military Tribunals operate outside the scope of criminal and civil jurisdictions. The jury and judges are military officers. In today’s episode you’ll learn how and why these tribunals were started and how Presidents began trying some civilians under Military law. You’ll also get Matt and Tony’s take on Guantanamo and why it might be ok to make enemies drink pee.
The Takeaway – There’s a lot of executive overreach. During wartime or emergency situations be weary of presidential power.
