News Gitmo Tribunals on Tape
posted by November 21 at 9:13 AMon
Thanks to a FOIA request made by the detainees’ lawyers, NPR obtained some low-quality tapes of Guantanamo military tribunals held to determine (ie, confirm) “enemy combatant” status. You know the rigamarole: the detainees are not permitted to hear the classified evidence against them, they don’t get lawyers, requested witnesses are rarely produced, etc. But actually hearing the sham proceedings? It’s humiliating.
