Col. James Pohl, the show judge in Guantanamo show trials, rejects a defense request that he rule on whether the Constitution of the United States applies to military tribunals. Pohl says no. What sort of trial takes place where the triers refuse to say what laws the trial takes place under?
Edward Avery, a former Catholic priest currently in prison for that thing they do, insists at a civil trial that he wasn’t really guilty of raping children, “So help me God,” that he plead guilty because he was just afraid of getting a longer sentence than the piddling 2½ to 5-year one he received. Cool, let’s invalidate the guilty plea and put him back on trial.
