The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has rejected the Air Force's request to vacate the decision prohibiting religious objectors from requiring COVID-19 vaccinations, stating that the Air Force's attorneys did not fully consider how it should respond to Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) claims in this context, and even if the mandate was now moot, it would not be the basis for the "extraordinary remedy of vacatur" of the panel's opinion.
The leak of US intelligence documents relating to Russia's actions in Ukraine revealed that there are fewer than 100 special operations personnel from NATO members France, the US, Britain, and Latvia on the ground there, but the presence of US troops in Ukraine, no matter how small, increases the risk of the US stumbling into an unwanted war with Russia, particularly if they are killed by a Russian bomb.
The Senate has passed a bill to repeal two authorizations for the use of military force against Iraq, a promising sign that Congress is willing to reclaim its constitutional powers, but now should go one step further and repeal the 2001 AUMF too, as it has been cited repeatedly over the last two decades to authorize conflicts in at least 19 countries, says The Week.

Switzerland is facing a quandary over waiving a ban on the re-export to Ukraine of Swiss-made weapons due to debates over neutrality and allowing military equipment made in the Alpine nation to end up in the wrong hands, all of which is affecting the country's defense industry as traditional customers become wary and "we are just losing our market".
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is calling for Twitter to supply the names of all journalists with whom the company shared internal documents and all communications regarding or received by CEO Elon Musk, citing the agency's need to protect consumer privacy and ensure the appropriate use of user data, while House Republicans are calling it politically motivated and an infringement on press freedom.
The U.S. military is considering limiting service members' access to guns and instituting a waiting period for purchases, which some have criticized for being an infringement on their rights, while recommendations that could address the root cause of military suicides, such as increasing the numbers of active-duty behavioral health technicians, are given only a moderate priority; the FBI, following in the wake of similar statements from experts, has endorsed the lab-leak theory of Covid-19's origin, and Supreme Court justices questioned President Joe Biden's student loan debt forgiveness plan.
Was ist Military Law?
Military Law is the body of law that governs the armed forces. It includes rules and regulations that guide military personnel in war and peacetime. Military law has its own judicial system, known as the court-martial, which deals with discipline and law enforcement in the military. Some key areas of military law include the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and the Geneva Conventions. Military personnel are subject to both military and civilian laws, and legal representation is available to them in both contexts.
