The US court system has a simple expedient for insuring that people like Watada can get no justice.
1) Tell soldiers they must disobey an illegal order;
2) Insure that the courts do not permit the question of illegal war to be raised in the justice system at all.
This catch-22 is what insures that Canada receives hundreds of US soldiers who cannot get a fair shake in what used to be a country that respected the rule of law.
