Casey Kasem's famous sign off line was, ""Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars." That third star is still out of reach for the Judge Advocates General. The President indicated today that he is vetoing the DOD Authorization bill, which includes the provision giving the Judge Advocates General a third star. The President's disapproval of the bill is the result of a provision potentially making the Iraqi government financially liable for torts committed by Saddam Hussein's government. In January, Congress will have a chance to either override the veto or pass the legislation in an altered form, as discussed in this WaPo piece.
