A real hero risks everything
And in the case of Air Force Colonel Morris Davis, he has risked his career, his relationship with fellow officers, his own reputation as a military leader at Guantanamo. Yesterday, he testified for the defense in the military commission trial of Salim Ahmed Hamdan, the alleged driver for Osama bin Laden. Morris has declared that the procedures are illegal and unconstitutional, and he is staking his entire career on exposing this truth. This is a neck upon which a Congressional Medal of Honor ought to hang.
UPDATE: Salim Ahmed Hamdan has declined to have his case heard by the military commission claiming that justice would not be served.
