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

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?
