Three stars for three wise men cont'

The Department of Defense has asked the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel to opine as to whether presidential action and/or Senate confirmation is necessary to elevate the three incumbent Judge Advocates General to O-9. Harper's Magazine has this link to the memo asking for the opinion.

I'm sure that the current JAGs can come up with some quid pro quo to make sure they get their third stars now. After all, as noted in the Washington Times recently, the JAGs exchanged their testimony on Capital Hill against "torture" to get their third stars. The Air Force, Senator Lindsey Graham, and BGen Rodriguez will make this happen.
