i’ve reading some of “my guantanamo diary” by, and so the fact that the us drops charges against 5 guantamo prisoners is of interest to me.
Dismissing the charges allows to Pentagon to avoid deadlines set by the Military Commissions Act to bring the men to trial.
“The way to stop the clock and get a new clock is to dismiss the charges and start again,” said retired Air Force Col. Morris Davis, the former chief prosecutor who quit in October and later testified about alleged political interference in the military trials.
what. the. fuck.
isn’t it unconstitutional to be charged for the same crime twice?
