Guess who I bumped into boarding the plane to Guantanamo Bay with me today? Richard Kammen, of Indianapolis. He is Learned Counsel in one of the GITMO Military Commission cases.
Apparently he’s hitching a ride to Guantanamo to visit his client–al Nashiri — who allegedly masterminded the USS Cole attack in Yemen. He has no links with the Hadi case I’m monitoring this week.
We thank Rick for coming to Indiana University McKinney School of Law to talk with us about his GITMO case.
Watching Kammen and his team for the Nashiri case was life changing for me. The nuances of that case against domestic (and military) and international law in practice left a profound impression on me.
