Morris Davis says allowing evidence from torture means the world will never see Guantanamo Bay trials as fair

The former chief US prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay has denounced the military trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks due to appear in court at Guantanamo on Saturday, as intended primarily to prevent the defendants from presenting evidence of torture.

Morris Davis, a former colonel who was chief prosecutor when Mohammed was brought to Guantanamo in 2006, said the military commissions will be badly discredited by the use of testimony obtained from waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation" techniques used on the accused men.

Other senior military lawyers have objected to the trials, including Rear Admiral Donald Guter, the former judge advocate general of the navy, who called the Guantanamo commissions a "circus".

TVNL Comment: If this guy was really the 9/11 mastermind the trial would be on TV like the OJ trial. It was hidden from the public and the guy was tortured for a decade. I would confess to being the 9.11 mastermind after 10 years of torture and so would you.
