Trial counsel and defense counsel have wrapped up their closing arguments on findings in the SSgt Alberto Martinez capital court-martial at Fort Bragg, according to the Albany Times Union, report here. Interestingly, it appears that lead TC, LtCol Huestis, did not make the government's closing argument. Rather, assistant TC Maj. John Benson closed for the government. Attributing any relationship between that decision and the run-in between LtCol Huestis and the military judge, report here, would be rampant speculation . . . .
