The Trial of Abd al-Nashiri at Guantanamo

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Lawrence Douglas tells us about his recent trip to Guantanamo to report on the preliminary hearings of Abd al-Nashiri, the senior Al Qaeda lieutenant who allegedly masterminded the attack on the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen in 2000. After the extensive efforts on the part of the Obama administration to establish the legal legitimacy of these commissions, Douglas questions the possibility that al-Nashiri will receive a fair trial. His article “A Kangaroo in Obama’s Court” appears in the October issue of Harper’s.

I can't wait till the ACLU sends attorneys to defend the monsters who slaughtered innocents in Kenya. These "suspects" deserve no due process.

The subject of this segment deserves no due process.
