AW1 Tim’s good friends at “This Ain’t Hell” have this in the bag. Head operator there, Jonn Lilyea, Got credentialed and is live-blogging the entire proceedings for us.
Anyone who is interested can follow the proceeding here: Gitmo Trial Live Blog Just hit your F5 key to refresh.
Of course, Jonn has an image of the car at least one of the “unbiased” media is driving, complete with Obama 2012 sticker on it. Can’t wait to read THOSE shaded half-truths.
Jonn starts of this way:
So here I am at Fort Meade, MD with the unbiased media. That’s one of their cars in the parking lot when we met up with the ‘splody smelling dogs. Just thought I’d let you know that there might be a bias in the reportage. Not from me, though. The trial starts at 9AM, so here’s your program for the fun.
The defendants are Kahlid Sheik Mohammed, Walid Muhammad Sakith Mubarak Bin ‘Attash, Ramzi Binai Shibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi. The lead prosecutors are General Mark Martins (DoD), Edward Ryan (DoJ) and Robert Swann (DoD).
There’s another site here on Fort Meade for CCTV broadcast from Guantanamo for 9-11 victims’ family members. The media doesn’t have access to them (rightfully) until after the broadcast and then both groups are out of the control of DoD. There are also ten family members in Guantanamo watching the trial through one-way glass who were picked by lottery.
The way I plan to do this live blog is like the way I did Winter Soldier, continually update this post once the trial begins. All you have to do is hit F5 to refresh the post. That’s so interested bloggers can just post this link for their readers.
The DoD PAO promises us “high adventure” today, so stand by for the fun.
For those who don’t comprehend WHY these trials are finally taking place, let me remind you:
