(Worthy News) – U.S. Supreme Court justices Wednesday questioned why the U.S. government will not let a suspected high-ranking al-Qaida figure held at the American naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba testify about his torture at the hands of the CIA.
Three of the nine justices pressed U.S. Acting Solicitor General Brian Fletcher on the subject as the court heard oral arguments in the government’s bid to prevent two former CIA contractors from being questioned in a criminal investigation in Poland examining the treatment of detainee Abu Zubaydah.
While the justices in general seemed skeptical that Zubaydah’s lawyers could overcome the government’s national security arguments, some raised the option of Zubaydah testifying himself as an alternative. [ Source: VOA (Read More…) ]
