Question of the Day
“Our government sources and methods are not an open book,” Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, the chief prosecutor, said in a press conference Sunday. “There may still be general sources and methods for intelligence gathering … that could still be bound up in someone’s testimony.”
The defense team for Ali has filed a motion asking the commission not to implement presumptive classification, arguing that the rule is an attempt to cover up embarrassing evidence related to torture while the accused were detained by the CIA.
A 2004 CIA inspector general report revealed that Mohammad was water-boarded 183 times.
“Clearly, there is a sense of embarrassment of mistakes that were made … [and] not wanting further embarrassing details to come out,” said James Connell III, attorney for Ali at a press conference Sunday.
Mr. Connell said that Ali’s father died recently, and the rule would pre-empt Ali from delivering a message to his mother.
Although the issues being presided on this week will ultimately affect how future trial proceedings are conducted, it could be years before a trial happens, in part due to the number of motions that have to be considered in court, the majority of them filed by the defense.
