according to today’s wall street journal,
col. morris davis, formerly a guantanamo
bay prosecutor, has agreed to testify for
the defense in the u.s. government’s case
against osama bin laden’s supposed driver:
. . .In another blow to the Bush administration, the military’s former chief prosecutor at Guantanamo says he will testify in support of Osama bin Laden’s former driver, who challenges his trial as politically rigged.
Col. Morris Davis, who resigned in October in a dispute with Defense Department superiors, said yesterday that he had agreed to testify at an April 28 hearing at the request of defense attorneys representing Salim Hamdan, who is charged with crimes including conspiracy with Mr. bin Laden. . .
this is deeply troubling evidence that
people of principle, the world over, even
some in military uniforms, feel that we,
as a nation, have lost our way, as a
one-time leader in respecting the rule of law.
we cannot advance freedom, if we
refuse to live by our own rules in conflicts.
