Judge: CIA interrogations not relevant to 9/11 accused's sanity


www.miamiherald.com

Meantime, the judge ruled on Aug. 6 that ``evidence of specific techniques employed by various governmental agencies to interrogate the accused is . . . not essential to a fair resolution of the incompetence determination hearing in this case.'' The Miami Herald obtained a copy of the ruling Monday.

Prosecutors had invoked a national security privilege in seeking to shield the details from defense lawyers. They argue that Bin al Shibh is sane enough to stand trial with alleged mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and three other alleged co-conspirators.

If he suffers a long-standing psychosis, she said, he may never be made competent for trial. But if he suffers post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his CIA interrogations, there may be PTSD treatments that could make him competent.



How incompetent would this man have to be to stand trial?

If he is found incompetent how would that change his ruling?

then again, this just may be a ploy to get the interrogation techniques out in the open. Who knows.....

That's kind of frightening. If the accused is guilty based on the evidence, why would the prosecution need such privileges. Anyone ever see the movie In The Name of the Father? I don't believe that's right or ethical.
