CNN – Guantanamo judge suspends 9/11 case prosecutions: The presiding judge in the 9/11 terrorism case at the Guantanamo detention facility granted a delay in the case on Wednesday, according to a military official close to the proceedings. The continuance comes a day after President Obama directed Defense Secretary Robert Gates to ask prosecutors to seek stays in prosecutions for 120 days so that the cases of suspected terrorists at the facility can be reviewed.
That’s a hell of a first day. Colour me impressed.
