FYI the links will be to each witness' written opening statement. Typically the Judiciary Committee makes the link appear broken until the hearing day. The links should be working either during the hearing (11 June at 1000) or immediately after the hearing concludes.

Thanks NBM. A cool feature of the links that I missed is that if you roll over them with your mouse it says "Click here to read [Witness X] testimony."

Is anyone on that list a moderate?

Which reminds me of a great Rush Limbaugh line: Name me the great "moderates" in world history?

Dwight is a moderate.

Are the links not working or is it just my computer?

Without agreeing with the premise, I can only assume Anon 0754 means moderately handsome.

As Homer Simpson would say: D'oh! I skimmed over reading the change of date..

Haha, well Mr. O'Connor's wit always brings a smile to my face.

Seriously Anon, I don't think rightwing/moderate/leftwing lables are appropiate in this situation.

But while on the subject I would think an ACLU/Marine Reservist/AF Civilian brings a good mix that may be construed as "moderate".

As opposed to, let's say, an AUSA that is also a Military Judge.

Which is not a good mix at all if you are an accused.
