As Lawfare readers may be aware, military commissions hearings are continuing this week in the 9/11 case. Lawfare will be covering the commissions as usual, with a bit of a twist: instead of daily, blow-by-blow coverage, we're going to take a higher-altitude approach and provide coverage once per week. As such, at the end of this week's hearings, we'll post a runthrough of everything that happened during this session on an issue-by-issue basis.
