11:29 am
custody. guantanamo opened on january 11th 2002 so interesting when the military commissions chose the date the anniversary which will you know be 19 years later to start the trial so in and of itself it tells you how long these men have been in custody and awaiting trial they were originally arranged in 2012 i think the defense attorneys would like very much to be able to make the case that should be there should be special circumstances understood before this trial and they've been making this case all along that these individuals were held in cia custody and tortured and so what lies at the heart of this case is is it possible to bring this case with clean evidence evidence that was not derived from torture we all know from reading the $911.00 commission report and many histories now of $911.00 that there are many facts that are out there in public but what has the
11:30 am
case can be. delayed as we've seen or impeded or or justice but to these men by bringing in the fact of their torture of is very important one of the issue is the death penalty this is a death penalty case and so there may be some further negotiation there's been a lot already about the death penalty 2 of these men are very ill one of at least one of them 2 of them are alleged to different times to be suffering from some kind of brain damage or psychological illness so that is also going to impede the trial the death of a man who was deported to iraq even though he never lived there has added to the fears among iraqis in the united states jimmy wood was sent to baghdad in june and later died from medical complications she had written c. has a story from detroit. it was clear that jimmy out there would was in distress once
