Hamdan's Lawyer Fired

The details are at Balkinization
MSNBC reported on Saturday that Lt. Cmdr. Charles Swift, the lawyer for Salim Ahmed Hamdan, was notified two weeks after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of his client that he would not be promoted to commander. His supervisor said Swift "has obviously done an exceptional job" and noted that the denial of his promotion soon after the Supreme Court ruling was "quite a coincidence." Pursuant to the military's "up or out" system, Swift will retire next March or April.
