 A note to readers: business back at Brookings will keep your correspondent away from Fort Meade, and from observing, almost live and via CCTV broadcast,  a two-day pre-trial hearing in the military commission case of United States v. Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi.  The session commences today at 1 p.m., and could continue through tomorrow.  

Nearly-live blogging not being an option, we will thus resort to our backup coverage format: Lawfare, in the person of Matt Danzer, will review transcripts of the day's events---once the transcripts become available---and post a digest in our "Event Coverage" section.  We'll be sure to note his posts as they come in on the site's front page.
