Judge: 5 year Delay = “Speedy Trial” (for a Guantanamo Prisoner)

By Kenneth J. Theisen 

 

Most people have some vague notion that the Constitution guarantees a speedy trial. But when it comes to the U.S. war of terror the Constitution has been repeatedly lost in our so-called system of justice. It was lost again on July 13th, when a federal judge rejected the claim that a five year delay in being brought into court violated a defendant’s rights to a speedy trial.
 
The case is that of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani. He is the first detainee formerly held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, to be brought before the civilian court system for trial. Federal Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that, “The government is entitled to attempt to hold Ghailani accountable in a court of law for his alleged complicity in the murder of 224 people and the injury of more than 1,000 others. Although the delay of this proceeding was long and entirely the product of decision for which the executive branch of our government is responsible, the decisions that caused the delay were not made for the purpose of gaining any advantage over Ghailani in the prosecution of this indictment.”

One aspect of that war and the way it oppress the population of Afghanistan is the rampant corruption of the Karzai regime. A new survey by Integrity Watch Afghanistan (IWA), an anti-corruption watchdog, indicates the extent of that corruption has worsened.
