The sun is on the horizon and the departure lounge at Andrews Air Force Base has started to fill up. The wall outlets are in demand; and the wifi is slowing down.
The nine NGO Observers are all here as we are the first to check-in. I have already distributed copies of the Guantanamo Bay Fair Trial Manual — everyone is most appreciative! One NGO Observer had already downloaded it from the link I sent in yesterday’s introductory email.
As soon as I finish this post I am off to continue conversation with some of the defense lawyers and members of the media.
