Can Secretaries of Defense be court-martialed?

EDIT: I'm not saying that that would necessarily be intended as anything other than a distraction.

No. He is a civilian. But he could be arrested and brought to a military court. As a commander, he can violate the CMJ. This has never been done in history that I know of.

A useful and concise response. Thank you.

The edges of human organizational systems, where things fall off or just get kind of hazy; these interest me. In the absence of structures and precedents, things tend to get settled by (semi-)private bargaining.

...for example, resignations. A good way to avoid prosecution/persecution. I wonder if Cheney will be so clever. Surely he has an exit plan?
