Back to Guantanamo Bay Post 9/11 Anniversary 

I returned to Washington, DC from Guantanamo Bay on Saturday the 10th of September, and am going back to Guantanamo on Monday the 12th.

On Sunday, the 15th Anniversary of the World Trade Center and Oentagon attacks, my law student Faisel Sadat and I paid respects at Arlington Cemetery. 

Why Guantanamo Bay again?

Last week I was there for pretrial hearings in the U.S. Military case against all Nashiri, who allegedly masterminded the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen, killing 17 US sailors. 

This week I am monitoring the modification of the guilty plead for Majid Khan, who is the only person convicted of crimes among the 61 men being held at the Guantanamo prison. 

I am joined by 6 non-governmental organization (NGO) representatives (pictured above), including one who was with me last week.

We are expected to have only one hour of court this week, on Wednesday.
