Will the Obama-era Guantanamo war court prosecutor stay on? No word yet.

There has been no announcement on whether the Pentagon plans to extend the tour of duty of Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, chief war crimes prosecutor at Guantanamo, who is due to retire in November, writes Carol Rosenberg in the Miami Herald. 

General Martins, 57, has been the chief overseer of war court cases and one of the case prosecutors in the terrorism trials/hearings for both the September 11 and USS Cole trials. He has said that he would continue to serve in these capacities if asked, nut has not said whether his offer was accepted.
