  • Third-year law student Julia Williams travels to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to observe Commission hearings - Law
    a reasonable basis to keep female guards from touching them The national attention that this case has garnished seeps into the courtroom itself On October 23 three senators visited Guantanamo Bay to meet with Camp 7 s female guards where it is suspected they discussed abhorrence of Judge Pohl s order that female guards not touch the five defendants A Camp 7 female guard testifying under the alias Sergeant Jinx met with these senators Despite defense counsel s best efforts to illicit testimony about Jinx s conversation with the senators Judge Pohl would not allow her to be questioned on the topic The courtroom in Guantanamo is kept chilly despite the hot Cuban air Observers including victims are separated from the defendants counsel and judge by three panes of glass meant to muffle the sounds of potentially classified information Though observers can see the courtroom they are also provided with televisions set on a 40 second audio delay When information is said that the court wishes to remain secret the judge need only press a button which cuts off the audio and cuts the televisions to black Not only does the judge have the power to press this button but governmental third parties also keep watch to make sure their interests are protected A daily and almost hourly subject brought up by defense counsel was the torture detainees suffered at the hands of the United States government Though the defendants experiences were all different it is clear from the Senate Torture Report that the CIA is responsible for grievous wrongdoing Defendant Bin Al Shibh was subject to this torture and probably more during his holding in black sites before his transfer to Guantanamo Bay Over the course of this litigation Bin Al Shibh s competency has been called into question as he believes that his cell in Camp 7 persistently vibrates Camp 7 guards deny this but Bin Al Shibh s counsel argues that a sophisticated third party beyond even the control of the guards could be causing the vibrations In response the government asked that Judge Pohl have Bin Al Shibh examined and declared competent Judge Pohl declined to do so instead reasoning that he would continue to presume Bin Al Shibh competent until facts show otherwise The belief in these vibrations he said do not rise to that level Another view of this issue is that Bin Al Shibh s continual assertion may be a tactical move to lay the foundation for a later finding of incompetency At this point in the proceedings I was becoming accustomed to life on base at Guantanamo Bay The escorts that guided me through my trip attempted to show the observers Camp X Ray This camp now closed is where the first wave of terrorists were held and allegedly tortured at the beginning of the War on Terror Half way down the road to Camp X Ray though we were held back by a rifle holding marine who explained that the area
