Criticism rages with accused 9/11 conspirators in court

"It was not justice, it was ridiculous," the military attorney for Mustafa al-Hawsawi, Major Jon Jackson, said Thursday after a hearing in the ultramodern new court building set up at the US naval base on Cuba's southeastern tip.

. . . the accused refused their lawyers' assistance, and some asked to be executed so they could be martyrs. . . .

Chief military defense attorney Colonel Steven David slammed what he said was the judge's rush to hold the hearing without giving the lawyers time to win their clients' trust.
