It’s barely 4:30 a.m. and I’m leaving my Washington, DC hotel bound for my flight to Guantanamo Bay. I’m expected to be at Andrews Air Force Base by 5:40 a.m.
The taxi just cruised past the White House…and there’s the Washington Monument. These landmarks call to mind the concepts of human rights, the rule of law, and in the case of Guantanamo Bay, the right to a fair trial.
I have been entrusted, along with other GTMO monitors, to try to ascertain whether all Guantanamo Bay stakeholder rights are being afforded to them. The accused have the right to a fair trial, and so to does the prosecution. Families of the victims also have the right to a fair trial.
I will report in later. Photos are forthcoming.
