Waiting for Departure to Guantanamo Bay

I am currently waiting in the Pasaenger Air Terminal at Joint Base Andrews awaiting the flight down to Guantanamo Bay. The departure lounge is filled with lawyers, Military Commissions personnel, media and other NGO observers all heading to Guantanamo for the next week. After checking in, the ten NGO representatives were given a briefing by one of the escorts on what to expect for the week in Guantanamo and the rules which need to be followed. There are representatives from several NGOs with a variety of backgrounds all with the same mandate to observe and report on this week’s proceedings in the United States v. Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, et al case (the 9/11 Trial).

Further updates to follow.
