Court rulings dim outlook for Guantanamo trials_0

Court rulings dim outlook for Guantanamo trials
GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) — A civilian appeals court has now reversed the verdicts of the only two Guantanamo Bay prisoners convicted in trials by military tribunal, casting a shadow over proceedings set to resume this week at the U.S. base in Cuba for the men accused in the Sept,nike free intersport. 11 terrorist attack.
A federal appeals court on Friday threw out the military commission conviction of Ali Hamza al-Bahlul, who was charged with providing material support to terrorism and conspiracy for making propaganda videos for al-Qaida. That followed the dismissal in October of the conviction of Salim Hamdan, a driver for Osama bin Laden.
Al-Bahlul and Hamdan were the only prisoners convicted in a trial by the tribunals known as a military commission. The five other convictions of Guantanamo prisoners came through plea bargains.
There are two pending death penalty cases at Guantanamo: one against a prisoner accused of orchestrating the attack on the USS Cole in 2000, the other against five men accused of planning and aiding the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But the recent reversals have raised new questions about the use of military commissions in complex terrorism cases.
"The fact that no conviction can stand up on appeal does not bode well for the military commission system," said James Connell, a lawyer for Ammar al-Baluchi, a Pakistani who is one of the five charged in the Sept. 11 attacks.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Friday overturned al-Bahlul's November 2008 conviction. In October, the court overturned Hamdan's August 2008 conviction. In both cases, the reasoning was the same.
The court determined that before enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which authorized the tribunals for the terrorism suspects at Guantanamo, only violations of the international law of war and pre-existing federal offenses were subject to trial by military commission, a special court for wartime offenses. The court said the charges of material support for terrorism and conspiracy did not meet that standard.
The Justice Department let the deadline to appeal the Hamdan ruling expire, perhaps because he has already been released after serving his 5 ½ year sentence and is back home in Yemen with his family. But the government said it disagreed with the ruling in court papers and is likely to challenge the al-Bahlul ruling.
A Pentagon spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, said "the al-Bahlul ruling has no bearing on the substantive merits," of the Sept. 11 case, which will be the subject of a four-day pretrial hearing scheduled to start Monday.
But the reversals hang like a cloud over the proceedings since the Sept. 11 case is vastly more complex than al-Bahlul or Hamdan, which were portrayed by officials at the time as warm-ups to the more significant prosecutions.
"It just shows just how shaky the entire military commission system is," said Andrea Prasow, an attorney for Human Rights Watch who was part of the defense team when Hamdan was convicted at Guantanamo in August 2008.
The cases couldn't be much more different. Hamdan was a relatively minor figure, dismissed as a "small player," even by the military judge who presided over his trial. Al-Bahlul, now serving life at Guantanamo,nike free run tilbud, didn't even mount a defense.
The Sept. 11 case features five defendants facing the death penalty for charges that include nearly 3,000 counts of murder for their alleged roles in planning and helping orchestrate the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Their May 5 arraignment was an unruly 13-hour spectacle, drawn out as the defendants refused to use the court translation system and ignored the judge, and any eventual conviction would face a multitude of appeals.
"Men's lives are on the line," Prasow said. "I think that's all the more reason for the government to proceed very cautiously and make sure that it is confident that it has a firm legal basis upon which to pursue these charges."
Already, the Hamdan and al-Bahlul cases are creating confusion in the Sept. 11 case.
The chief prosecutor for the Guantanamo tribunals, Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, sought to withdraw the charge of conspiracy in the Sept. 11 case, leaving seven charges against them.
"There are significant litigation risks attendant to proceeding with the joint conspiracy charge as a separate and stand-alone offense in the subject case," Martins said in a motion released Friday.
But then his recommendation to withdraw the charge was overruled by Convening Authority Bruce MacDonald, a retired admiral who oversees the military commissions, who said the conspiracy charge was still under judicial review.
The debate over the conspiracy charge won't be at issue at this week's hearing,nike free 3.0 dame. A judge set the four-day proceeding at the base hear arguments on about two dozen defense and prosecution motions that must be resolved prior to a trial that is likely at least a year away.
Among the motions is one from lawyers for the five defendants, who include self-professed terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, requiring the U.S. government to preserve the secret overseas prisons where the men were held, and subjected to harsh interrogations, before they were taken to Guantanamo. Those prisons, they argue, are potential evidence for claims that the prisoners were subjected to torture.

Britain must solve "Catholic Question" to amend royal rules - Cl

Britain must solve "Catholic Question" to amend royal rules - Clegg
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain must change its laws to allow a future king or queen to marry a Catholic despite "old prejudices and old fears" that this might imperil ties between the monarchy and the Church of England, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said on Tuesday,nike blazers vintage.
Presenting a bill to parliament that would end 300-year-old laws that ban future monarchs from marrying Catholics, he said the rules were from a "bygone era".
The amendments would also end the primacy of male heirs to the British throne, meaning that the claim to the throne of the first child of Prince William and his pregnant wife Kate Middleton, if a girl, would not be usurped by younger brothers.
"Today we do not support laws which discriminate on either religious or gender grounds. They have no place in modern Britain, and certainly not in our monarchy," said Clegg, during the second reading of the bill to amend succession.
Despite having widespread support must pass through several other stages of scrutiny before becoming law.
Plans to allow heirs to the throne to marry Catholics have raised concerns about the religion in which children from the union will be raised, given British monarchs are also Supreme Governor of the Church of England.
Since the time of King Henry VIII and England's break with the Roman Catholic church in the 16th century, the ruling English - now British - monarch has been the head of the now 80 million-strong Anglican communion.
"There is huge potential tension ... It is important to ensure that the monarch is not put in an invidious place in the context of which religion heirs to the throne or those in line to the throne are marrying," Ian Lang, who sits in parliament's upper chamber, said earlier this month.
Media reports have also indicated that Prince Charles, Prince William's father, has expressed concerns about the consequences on the English church of changing succession rules.
Clegg batted away concerns over what he dubbed the "Catholic Question", insisting that the Catholic church does not oblige children in mixed marriages to be raised as Catholics.
"I know there are some concerns among some honourable members about potential unintended consequences of this reform: specifically, if a monarch is married to a Catholic and their heir has to be brought up in the Catholic faith," he said.
"But if we follow that logic, we should be introducing bans on marriage to members of every other faith - and indeed people with no faith. Right now the monarch can marry a Muslim, a Jew, a Hindu, an atheist - yet no one is alleging today that we're teetering on the edge of a constitutional crisis,cheap Nike Trainer," he said.

Body of Georgian soldier found in Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) ? The body of a Georgian soldier who is believed to be the first member of the international coalition in Afghanistan to have gone missing in more than three years was found in the country's south, NATO said Sunday. The coalition said he had been captured, without providing further details.
A statement said Afghan police found the body and turned it over to NATO forces Saturday,nike blazers sale. He went missing Dec. 18 in the restive province of Helmand.
The solider from the NATO-led coalition is believed to be the first to have gone missing since a U.S. Army sergeant was captured by the Taliban in June 2009. The dead soldier was among the 1,500 troops from the former Soviet republic of Georgia serving in Afghanistan,nike women blazers. NATO says an investigation is under way into his capture and death.
An Afghan district official said a villager found the body about 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the soldier's base in Helmand's Musaqala district and informed local police. The official requested anonymity since he was not authorized to talk with the press.
Georgia's Defense Ministry earlier described the missing man as an officer and said an intense search and rescue operation had been mounted in Helmand and Nimroz provinces.
The last known coalition soldier to go missing was U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl,cheap nike blazers, 26, who was taken prisoner by militants in Paktika province in southeastern Afghanistan. Attempts have been made by the U.S. to secure his release but have so far failed.
Nineteen Georgian soldiers have been killed since the country joined international military operations in Afghanistan in August 2009. Georgia is not a member of NATO but has significant presence in the country relative to its population of 4.5 million.
There are currently more than 100,000 coalition troops in the country, including some 66,000 from the United States. Only a residual force is slated to remain past 2014.
