Qosi sentenced and Khadr jury selection complete
A very interesting day in the Guantanamo courtrooms; the Qosi trial has concluded- first under Obama administration- and Khadr jury selection is complete. Khadr trial begins in earnest tomorrow morning.
The kicker is that I was told that drawing the panel(aka jury) is no longer allowed. Not even an outline, odd when you look at previous commissions I've sketched in, and you see the various services, ranks and genders of the military jury. It is a powerful image.
Here's hoping this can be overturned.
