Gitmo judge sends Marine general lawyer to 21 days confinement for disobeying orders

The USS Cole case judge Wednesday found the Marine general in charge of war court defense teams guilty of contempt for refusing to follow the judge’s orders and sentenced him to 21 days confinement and to pay a $1,000 fine.

Air Force Col. Vance Spath also declared “null and void” a decision by Marine Brig. Gen. John Baker, 50, to release three civilian defense attorneys from the capital terror case. The lawyers resigned last month over a covert breach of attorney-client privilege involving something so secretive at the terror prison that the public cannot know.

Wednesday evening, with Baker confined to his quarters in a trailer park behind the courthouse, Judge Spath issued another order: Directing the three lawyers — Rick Kammen, Rosa Eliades and Mary Spears — to litigate Friday in the death-penalty case against Abd al Rahim al Nashiri remotely from the Washington D.C., area by video feed to Guantánamo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of which leads me to the speculation; was this guy, perchance, a patsy, to be crucified legally, then executed for something he absolutely did not do?!?

This very brazen show of force by Judge Spath against Baker does not speak very highly of the judicial process going on here, and that Spath wants to see his "orders" followed through to a lightning-quick death penalty conviction of al Nashiri, before some new evidence might be presented, which could possibly unravel the case to the point of no return, just makes me wonder.
