Defense Attorney David Nevin Speaks About the Military Commissions

By Suzanne Ito, ACLU at 8:59pm
David Nevin is a criminal defense attorney who was in Guantánamo Bay last week for the arraignment of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Nevin is the first civilian attorney to speak to Mohammed. (The first attorney to ever speak with Mohammed is Prescott Prince, Mohammed's military-appointed JAG lawyer.) In this video, recorded at the ACLU Membership Conference, Nevin gives his thoughts on the circumstances of Mohammed's refusal of legal representation, and the system of "justice" being meted out by the Military Commissions Act.
