Col. Morris Davis and Guantanamo: An Unlikely Legal Rights Advocate?

Former chief prosecutor at Guantanamo and Bush administration military commision stalwart, Col. Morris D. Davis, will testify on behalf of Salim Ahmed Hamdan, Osama bin Laden's former driver.

According to The New York Times, Davis said

. . . there “is a potential for rigged outcomes” and that [Davis] had “significant doubts about whether it will deliver full, fair and open hearings.”

Should be interesting. The whole article is worth a read for background into the remarkable about face, and the conviction with which Davis appears poised to proceed.
