You’ve probably already heard that Rush Limbaugh is threatening to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for defamation. He is arguing that the DCCC has intentionally disseminated demonstrably false statements concerning him in a concerted effort to harm him. If you find yourself in a similar situation to Mr. Limbaugh, you can learn more here about the process of suing for defamation. Well, just like Rush Limbaugh, 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.
