Pentagon to Seek Death Penalty for Six at Guantanamo
What do we have here -- show trials just in time for the November elections, to help out the Republican nominee? (hat tip to reader Scribe.)
Military prosecutors will seek the death penalty for six detainees at Guantanamo.
Update: The ACLU says the system is flawed.
Via Sebastian Meyer: The U.S. reasoning for the 6 death penalty cases sought in Guantánamo is based on the Geneva Conventions, the very document the U.S. claims does not apply in this case.
Update: The Center for Constitutional Rights which represents one of the six designated for execution is challenging the validity of military comissions and use of torture evidence in death penalty cases.
