Guantanamo Trials Face Hurdles

Another interesting piece in today’s New York Times by William Glaberson, Hurdles Seen as Capital Charges Filed in 9/11 Case, which quotes Joe Margulies of Northwestern and Colonel Steven David, the Chief Defense Counsel in the Office of Military Commision (both of whom I have interviewed).

Margulies noted that defense lawyers will need a fair amount of time to prepare for trial and David advised that his office does not have enough lawyers to assign to the six cases at issue. “You’re asking me to tell you how we’re going to get to a place we’ve never been, with a map I don’t have,” Colonel David said.
