NEW YORK — After hiscapture in the 1998 bombingof a U.S. embassy in Tanzania,Ahmed Ghailani recalled wel-coming news reports of the al-Qaida-sponsored terror attack— until it dawned on him hiscountrymen were killed.“The target was Americans,not Tanzanians,” Ghailaniexplained, according to a sum-mary of a lengthy confession.A jury would hear none of it when Ghailani went on trialmore than a decade later.With the confession barredfrom evidence, the trial lastyear resulted in Ghailani’sconviction on just one countand an acquittal on 284 oth-ers in dual attacks in Tanzaniaand Kenya. But that’s unlikelyto stop a judge from givinghim the same punishment atsentencing Tuesday as if he’dbeen convicted of everything:life in prison.The potential for a para-doxical outcome in the closelywatched test case points to thedifficulties of applying civilianlaws and rules of evidence incivil prosecutions of suspectspicked up in other countries inthe war on terror.It also may dash hopesthat the Ghailani case wouldclear the way for the trials of other Guantanamo detaineescaptured around the globe inthe war on al-Qaida, includingKhalid Sheikh Mohammed,the self-professed mastermindof the Sept. 11 terror attacks.The confessions and the tes-timony of the government’smain witness, a man whowould say he sold explosivesthat were used in the bombs toGhailani, were kept out of thetrial because they were gath-ered by investigators whosepriority was to stop further ter-rorism attacks rather than gath-er evidence for a criminal trial.While a military tribunalmight not allow evidence thatwas excluded from Ghailani’scivilian trial either, its exclu-sion at a high-profile trial couldmake it harder for the govern-ment to argue that most detain-ees belong in a civilian courtat a time when the issue hasbecome politically charged.President Barack Obamacontinues to say he wants toprosecute terrorists in both mil-itary commissions and criminalcourts, but Congress has madethat difficult. Lawmakers haveprohibited the Pentagon fromtransferring detainees to theU.S., even to stand trial.On the eve of trial, U.S.District Judge Lewis A. Kaplanexcluded the testimony of theexplosives salesman becausehe was discovered whenGhailani underwent harshinterrogation at an overseasCIA-run camp after his 2004arrest in Pakistan. Prosecutorsdecided not to use the confes-sions because Ghailani wasn’tadvised of his rights before hespoke to agents and did nothave access to a lawyer.The rulings opened the doorfor a mixed verdict. Duringdeliberations, the jury hadindicated it was divided, andKaplan theorized the guiltyverdict on only one countreflected a compromise witha juror who was holding outagainst conviction.“Thus, if there was anyinjustice in the jury’s verdict,the victims were the UnitedStates and those killed, injuredand otherwise devastated bythese barbaric acts of terror,not Ghailani,” the judge wroteas he rejected a request bydefense lawyers to toss outthe lone charge that resulted inGhailani’s conviction.The judge called the evi-dence persuasive, citing proof that Ghailani bought one of thebomb-laden trucks, purchased15 gas cylinders used in thebomb, stored and concealeddetonators and sheltered anal-Qaida fugitive prior to theattacks.In court papers, prosecutorsagreed. They also cited evi-dence against Ghailani, includ-ing that he delivered hundredsof pounds of TNT to an al-Qaida cell two months beforethe bombings along with bagsof fertilizer.

Moore of Detroit, but said he couldn’tspeculate about a motive inSunday’s shooting at the 6thprecinct.“There’s nothing in thisthat makes sense at all,”Godbee told reporters duringa briefing on the case.Godbee didn’t release spe-cifics of the homicide caseinvolving Moore’s relative.He said the relative had beenscheduled for sentencingtoday.The police station shootinghappened around 4:20 p.m.Sunday. The gunman walkedthrough the front door of theone-story building and beganfiring, according to police.The precinct commander, twosergeants and an officer suf-fered wounds that were notconsidered life-threatening.Commander Brian Davisand one of the sergeants werein stable condition, Godbeesaid today. The others havebeen treated and released.Godbee said he hasreviewed video of the shoot-ing and seen the officers’“acts of heroism.”“In a split second their lifechanged,” Godbee said. “Theperpetrators’ intent was evil.But these men and women ...performed to the standard thatthey were trained to.”Rev. Jerome Warfield,chair of the Detroit PoliceBoard of Commissioners, vis-ited the precinct with othermembers of the board afterleaving the hospital where thewounded officers are beingtreated. He says officers at theprecinct “are still somewhatshocked that this happened.”The shooting left officersto ponder how to protect them-selves from the crime theyfight daily on the city’s toughstreets. Like other precincts inthe city, the 6th has no metaldetectors at the entrance andvisitors are permitted to comein and talk face-to-face withpolice sitting behind a large,rounded desk.
