GITMO JUDGE BLOCKS 9/11 DEFENSE ATTORNEYS FROM VIEWING 28 PAGES

A judge presiding over the trial of five Guanta accused of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks has denied a defense motion seeking full access to 28 pages on Saudi government links to the attacks found in the 2002 report of a joint congressional intelligence inquiry.

Though the 28 pages were declassified in July 2016, the public version has 97 redactions amounting to about three cumulative pages of material. Defense attorneys wanted to see what’s still hidden from view.

Attorneys representing the accused 9/11 conspirators argued that evidence of other guilty parties, to include the possible complicity of the government of Saudi Arabia, could be useful to their defense during the guilt or innocence phase of the upcoming trial and, if necessary, during sentencing as well.

Prosecutors argued that, as a congressional record, the 28 pages are not releasable by the prosecution, and even if they were, they merely represent a repackaging of other information that had been or or will be provided to the defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what so terrifies Judge Pohl about releasing this information to the attorneys for the defendants in this case.
