Guantanamo judge: Dismantle secret censorship system

  • cause On Monday, a video feed from a military courtroom hearing a case involving 9/11 suspects stationed at Guantanamo was interrupted by an outside censor. While a person on the premises next to the judge censors sensitive information, the feed (which is already on a 40-second delay) was cut by a third party outside of the courtroom.
  • reaction On Thursday, the judge, Army Colonel James Pohl, ordered the censorship system dismantled. ”It is the judge that controls the courtroom,” he said. “This is the last time … any other third party will be permitted to unilaterally decide that the broadcast should be suspended.” Don’t mess with James Pohl. source
