The current military commission system came into place when
President Obama signed the Military Commissions Act of 2009. The use of military commissions is nothing
new in the United States. Military
commissions have been used since the Revolutionary War, when General George
Washington put into place a Board of General Officers in order to determine
whether a former soldier was a spy for Great Britain. There has been great debate over whether the
detainees of Guantanamo and other detainees are being afforded due process of
the law in these military commissions and whether military commissions have ever
been successful in practice.
