I just arrived at Ft. Meade, Maryland for today’s live hearings in the Guantanamo Bay case against al Nashiri, who allegedly orchestrated the bombing of the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen in 2000. It’s actually a secure feed live from the courtroom at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, broadcast in a movie theater (the Post Theater) at this military base in Maryland.
Ft. Meade is the only place outside of Guantanamo that NGO Observers accredited by the Pentagon, like me and Affiliates of the Indiana University McKinney School of Law, can monitor in real time what’s happening in the Guantanamo Bay courtroom.
More to come later today.
