I go with A. What is OA?
Military commissions are not legal 'because' they are violating. Not rather they violate...
I might be wrong.

A) legal, as they are violating
B) legal; a violation of (It gives impression that act by US Supreme Court ... is violation)
C) legal, but rather violate
D) legal, but rather they constitute a violation of
E) legal, rather they violate


Rather is used with than, and if used alone then it is used to show the preference. Please share OA?

IMO A). What is OA? Please share.
I will go with A) too...here there is no contrast between two sentence and so it requires to continue from previous instead of using rather.
