Military Judge Rules Two Servicemembers Accused of Sexual Assault Can’t Be Discharged Because of Comments Made By Obama….  It appears that President Barack Hussein Obama and Navy Judge Commander Marcus Fulton are trying to outdo each other in trying to ruin the United States Military.   ‘I expect consequences,” Obama said according to Erik Slavin of  Stripes.com, “So I don’t just want more speeches or awareness programs or training, but ultimately folks look the other way. If we find out somebody’s engaging in this, they’ve got to be held accountable — prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged. Period.”, he added.  The judge’s pretrial ruling means that if either defendant is found guilty, whether by a jury or a military judge, they cannot receive a bad conduct discharge or a dishonorable discharge. Sailors found guilty under the Uniform Code of Military Justice’s Article 120, which covers several sexual crimes including assault and rape, generally receive punitive discharges.
