A federal judge Thursday ordered the government to stop genital searches of Guantanamo Bay detainees who want to meet with their lawyers, concluding that the motivation for the searches is not to enhance security, but to deter the detainees' access to attorneys.
Julian Zapata Espinoza, a cell commander of the brutal Los Zetas drug cartel, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in the District to the killing of agent Jaime Zapata and the attempted murder of his partner during a February 2011 daylight ambush on a major highway 250 miles north of Mexico City.
Lamberth wrote: "Judge Young's comment is equally apt when applied to the detainees at Guantanamo."
He said the third justification, viewed in isolation, did appear to reasonably advance legitimate security interests.
