The Smallwood theater at Fort Meade is unusually crowded with press today, but not with the usual suspects–who are all down at Guantanamo itself for the big event. Wells and I are joined by Swedish press, by Adam Serwer from Mother Jones, and by Margot Williams of NPR. And there are a lot of faces I don’t recognize as well.
KSM, unsurprisingly, has more star power than Majid Khan or Abd Al-Rahim Hussein Muhammad Abdu Al Nashiri.
Nobody is quite sure how today is going to go, so we’re going to keep things fluid. Some posts will come from Wells. Some will come from me. Some will come from both of us. We may follow our usual procedure of giving blow-by-blow accounts of arguments–or, if the news is particularly fast-moving, we may not.
