Breaking: earlier today, the Senate Armed Services Committee approved its two pending nominees for judgeships on the Court of Military Commission Review - William Pollard, and Professor Scott L. Silliman (who taught me in law school).  You'll find some more background on the nominations here.

Both nominations now proceed to the Senate floor.  It is believed that the full Senate will try to confirm both Silliman and Pollard before the legislature's July 4th recess.
