Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (CNN) — Silence and the odd outburst from accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others turned an arraignment that could have lasted minutes into a 13-hour court session at Guantanamo Bay on Saturday. Mohammed and the others — Walid Muhammad Salih, Mubarak bin ‘Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi — appeared to work together to defy the judge’s instruction, refusing to speak or cooperate with courtroom protocol. Toward the end of the day, he took off his shirt while his attorney was describing injuries she alleged he sustained while in custody. At one point, bin ‘Attash made a paper airplane and placed it on top of a microphone. It was removed after a translator complained about the sound the paper made against the microphone.
First of all, why would the judge even waste his time trying to pronounce those names? Just say “bring out those four assholes.” Second, have I been asleep for 11 years? WTF is going on at Guantanamo Bay? These guys are still alive? Leave it to a defense attorney representing the worst mass murderers in the history of the world (besides Hitler, Genghis Khan, Edi Amin, and Cobra Command from G.I. Joe) to bring up the fact her client sustained injuries while in custody. Oh, the horror. Then, this guy had his hands free long enough during session to manufacture a paper airplane? A PAPER AIRPLANE? Immediate death! Immediate!
Now, for the life of me, I honestly don’t remember where I was on 9/11, but I do recall seeing some of the footage and it was very bad. Please cast your vote for an immediate Death Penalty when the evidence is kinda sorta obvious.
