I flew out of Chicago Midway at 11 AM, well my flight was delayed so more like 1130 AM. During the flight, I read a law review article by Jonathan Hafetz entitled Diminishing the Value of War Crimes Prosecutions: A View of the Guantanamo Military Commissions from the Perspective of International Criminal Law. Also, I re-read the Motion regarding the competency of Ramzi Binalshibh.
I arrived in DC around 2 PM and went straight to my hotel, which was located about 5 miles away from AAFB. I did a Skype call with Professor Edwards International Law class to watch a lecture by Mr. Rick Kammen. Mr. Kammen is learned counsel for Al-Nashiri. His lecture was very informative and he provided good detail into what to expect while I am at GTMO.
Called it an early night since I have to be at AAFB by 6:30 AM tomorrow. In order to ensure I wake up, I set 4 alarms. I set two alarms on my phone, one on the hotel alarm clock, and I scheduled a wake up call from the front desk of the hotel. If you could not tell, I am slightly paranoid I may miss my flight in the morning!
