Some military prosecutors will acquire the testimony of witnessesby offering them immunity, plea deals, and favors, so long as the witnesses help the prosecution win their case & say what they want them to say.
Military prosecutors often use the “shotgun approach” to charging. Their strategy is simple, charge a military service member with as many charges as possible, and they will have no choice but to plead guilty. It is not uncommon for a court martial charge sheet to be 3 pages long, usually with the same conduct charged over and over again, in a variety of ways.
The Government has virtually unlimited financial resources and some prosecutors will try to win at all costs. CID, OSI, NCIS, & other military investigators are trained to use lies, trickery, & deceit, & they are good at it. Their official training courses teach them to use “Liars, Trickery, & Deceit” to get the job done. They will get away with as much lying as the defense lawyer will allow.
The Government has its own staff of criminal investigators (CID, NCIS, OSI, MPI, etc.) trying to dig up dirt to use against you. They will almost always overlook, misplace, or hide evidence that helps your case. At trial, they will take innocent facts and twist them to make you look guilty.UCMJ DEFENSE

What can we expect when we have a President who loathes the military?
From the military-related website BLACKFIVE
Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.
The three, all members of the Navy’s elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral’s mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial. Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named “Objective Amber,” told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.
Unless this guy shows up with multiple compound fractures caused by the repeated use of a chunk of rebar long after he was in custody in the rear, I will go on record as saying I don’t give a f***.
You have absolutely got to be shittin’ me, a bloody lip? Good Lord, I hope he didn’t have any scrapes on him’s widdle knee. This is another slap in the faces of those we ask to do the toughest job on the damn planet. I think it may just be time to have a no prisoners policy. All of the organs of our government now seem to be more concerned with the safety and legal rights of murderous barbarians and oblivious to the damage they are doing to the morale and esprit de corps of our troops, not to mention the safety of our country.
WTF is wrong with these people? The only nice thing is they will face a jury of their peers as they told the command to suck it and demanded court martial. All it takes is a few good men on that f**king jury to tell all the chickenshits in the chain of command that we know who the good guys are and these guys walk. Navy it’s time to represent for your brothers, serve proudly on that jury and let the gutless punks know what they ought to focus on.
