Remark by Obama Complicates Military Sexual Assault Trials

When President Obama proclaimed that those who commit sexual assault in the military should be “prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged,” it had an effect he did not intend: muddying legal cases across the country.

In at least a dozen sexual assault cases since the president’s remarks at the White House in May, judges and defense lawyers have said that Mr. Obama’s words as commander in chief amounted to “unlawful command influence,” tainting trials as a result. Military law experts said that those cases were only the beginning and that the president’s remarks were certain to complicate almost all prosecutions for sexual assault.

Okay, we have been told by so many for the last 6 years that Obama is a genius constitutional law professor. Way to go there, Einstein.

Canadians, Europeans, Australians, Latin Americans, and many people throughout the world plus half of Americans were just so ridiculously gullible and idol worshipped him.  Lots of people right here on this forum too.  What happened to all the fawning stuff I used to see written here by some people?  I just don't see it much anymore...
