Military Judge Orders Guantánamo Prisoners not to Talk in Court about being Tortured

Friday, December 14, 2012

The Obama administration has won a critical ruling in the upcoming military trial of the September 11, 2001, plotters that will keep the defendants from testifying about being tortured.

The Central Intelligence Agency, Department of Defense and the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked the military judge, Colonel James Pohl, to censor any statements from the detainees going on trial that reveal how they were tortured or abused by the U.S.

Pohl agreed with the agencies that classified information should not be disclosed during the proceedings, including any details about the use of interrogation techniques on the defendants.
