On my way to FT. Meade to View CCTV of the military commissions motions hearing in the case of the US v. Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, et al

I have had the honor of being allowed to view the below proceedings at Fort Meade and to report back to Cold War Veteran's Blog readers. It is by far and away the most important story my little Blog has covered. Wish me luck I hope to report on the hearings not so much for the legal intricacies but for the Everyman the average Joe as it were. The look and feel , the historical significance, and finally a emotional reactions of all involved will be covered in my dispatches. Stay tuned.


The start of the military commissions motions hearing in the case of the US v. Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, et al, will be delayed 24 hours.  The new start will be on THURSDAY, the 23rd of August.  Those wishing to attend at Fort Meade to view via CCTV are requested to please reconfirm   The presiding judge, COL James L. Pohl, granted an emergency request to delay the start of the legal proceedings due to a rupture - since remedied - in the internet connection that provides defense counsel and the prosecution access to necessary legal files on the US-based server.
