    I see a woman attacked by some goon in a parking lot. I move to intercede. There are some friends who will help me, for surely goodness and mercy shall follow us. Bystanders from the balconies across the bordering hedge call out,

    Hey, down there, hold on a minute.

    What possibly might the trouble be?

    Can’t you [...]

    Years ago, one of my clients in a VA benefits office had been a sergeant working at the PX in Thailand. He was busted for conspiring with nationals to kick great rivers of goods over the back fence for the black market. They held him in the brig for too long, however. They had three months to charge him under the UCMJ habeus corpus law unless they could show due diligence with extraordinary hindrance. Dealing with the Thai government over jurisdiction was insufficient, and he was discharged honorably without court-martial or any other punishment.

    What I want to know is, how can they hold Manning forever without charges?
