Today no detainees chose to attend the proceedings. I sketched Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, arguing how 'torture' is defined in the commissions, the defense table for KSM, and Maj. Jason Wright discussing ongoing email security issues.

Today I spent the whole day drawing from the viewing gallery in the back of the court. My focus in the afternoon was to get the perspective of the victim family members who are watching the proceedings.

One detainee, Ramzi bin al Shibh, was present for part of the day in today's pretrial hearings. In the afternoon he chose to leave court, defense then explaining why.
I was able to get a gallery sketch as well as the prosecution today.

Today was the first day of a week of continuing 9/11 pretrial hearings. All the accused are compelled to attend first day, with the option to sit out the following days. At issue today was one detainee's illness and discomfort at having to be present during the hearings. Towards the end of the day, a brief closed session was held. We return first thing tomorrow morning.
