Speaking of CLE . . .

Our very own No Man, Mike Navarre of Steptoe & Johnson LLP, will be moderating an ABA teleconference and webcast CLE program called "Criminal Accountability for Civilians in the Battle Space" on 19 March from noon to 1330 EDT. Here's a link to information about the program. Among Mike's panelists will be Bob Reed of DOD OGC.

Should we start a pool on when the No Man will moderate an ABA CLE program on Apprendi?

It sounded better in the old days when it was 'in the field'.

Battlespace sounds like tron.

pretty esoteric topic - will there be more people on the panel than in the audience? - that is usual for most ABA programs

After the conference, Robert Reed is going to host a driving competition where the contestants see how close they can drive to a pylion without knocking off the egg he places on top of it.

Given the large number of civilian contractors accompanying forces in Iraq and Afghanistan commanders are likely to encounter civilian misconduct that jeopardizes the mission, offends the host nation, or negatively impacts good order and discipline. JAGs must be able to guide commandeers through the myriad of available options to deal with such misconduct and the benefits and pitfalls of each option.

No Man should go to AA, Apprendi Anonymous.

An Army Doctrine Update issued by the Combined Arms Doctrine Directorate 0n 24 February 2009 issued interim guidance pending the changes in FM 3-0 correcting "commonly misused terms". Among the admonitions: "Battlespace is no longer a joint or Army term. Use 'operational environment'".

That's why I love the Army. I will have to remind Ms. Duey of this fact when we have the CLE, she's a former Army JA.

Amazingly no follow on Bob Reed comments, so I'll leave you with this. Upon reading JO'C's comment it occurred to me tha I might better my presentation by imagining my audience in . . . wait now I am a little ill.

I've also heard that the Army has issued a new regulation that the term "Battle Cat" should no longer be used. Instead, the term "He-Man's Feline Ally in the Global/Intergalactic War on Skeletor" is considered more appropriate. Also OK is "Cringer."

Yes, nothing is more dense than Army doctrine. The Vatican could take lessons. Mercifully for those of us too old to remember UA, UE and SUA (no, Navy/USMC types UA is not AWOL)those terms are also "out" and we have corps, division and brigade combat teams (BCT)much easier for us old goats glued to pyramids not "plug and play. Also you are now to use "civil considerations" vs. "human terrain". Isn't that so much more clear?
