Much like Rush Limbaugh, who’s threatening to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for defamation, I’m staunchly against sexual assault. At the same time, however, I advocate for fair and impartial justice for those facing sexual assault allegations.
In my October 2011 nonfiction book, Three Days In August, I offer an in-depth look at one example of military justice that turned out to be anything but. In fact, New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter read my book about Army Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart‘s brush with the military justice system and described it as painting “a convincing portrait of a military justice process that appears to have lacked one essential element – justice.”
Over the years since publishing the book, I’ve heard from dozens of individuals who, like Stewart, have personally experienced similar “railroading” — and I’ve heard from their friends and relatives, too — under the gavel of political correctness. In fact, I could write a library full of books about such cases. Unfortunately, Americans simply don’t seem to care much about such cases — at least it seems that way to me — unless they or a loved one are directly involved.
Among the many new faces arriving in Washington, D.C., next year, I hope some of them seize upon the opportunity to undo what people like Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) have done in recent years and restore the military justice system so that it delivers one thing and one thing only: JUSTICE.
