The Latest Kangaroo Court Leak Investigation

Just yesterday, the government found a way to move beyond the FBI’s investigation of Gitmo detainee Ramzi bin al-Shibh’s defense team by splitting his prosecution from the other 9/11 defendants. But it appears Gitmo has already found another defense team — that of former teen detainee Omar Khadr — with prosecution. The clerk of the Military Court of Review, to which Khadr’s attorneys are appealing his plea deal in light of recent court decisions limiting law of war prosecutions, has accused Khadr’s defense of leaking documents to Lawfare blog and potentially to The Canadian Press.
