NIMJ Reports from Volume 3
 
 
 
 
The
 
National
 
Institute
 
of
 
Military
 
 Justice
 
(NIMJ)
 
was
 
founded
 
in
 
1991
 
to
 
advance
 
the
 
fair
 
administration
 
of
 
military
 
 justice
 
and
 
to
 
foster
 
improved
 
public
 
understanding
 
of
 
the
 
military
 
 justice
 
system.
 
Following
 
President
 
George
 
W.
 
Bush’s
 
November
 
13,
 
2001,
 
Military
 
Order
 
au
thorizing
 
military
 
commissions,
 
NIMJ
 
studied
 
and
 
commented
 
on
 
the
 
Department
 
of
 
Defense
 
procedures
 
established
 
to
 
imprison
 
and
 
prose
cute
 
detainees.
 
NIMJ
 
appears
 
regularly
 
as
 
an
 
amicus
 
curiae
 
in
 
cases
 
involving
 
detainee
 
issues,
 
including
 
Hamdan
 
v.
 
Rumsfeld
 ,
 
548
 
U.S.
 
547
 
(2006),
 
where
 
the
 
Supreme
 
Court
 
overturned
 
President
 
Bush’s
 
original
 
military
 
commis
sions.
 
Another
 
aspect
 
of
 
NIMJ’s
 
mission
 
is
 
fos
tering
 
public
 
education
 
through
 
its
 
website,
 
www.wcl.american.edu/nimj,
 
and
 
publications
 
such
 
as
 
the
 
 Annotated
 
Guide
 
to
 
Procedures
 
 for
 
Trials
 
by
 
 Military
 
Commissions
 
of 
 
Certain
 
Non

States
 
Citizens
 
in

ism
 
(2002),
 
four
 
volumes
 
of
 
the

Com
mission
 
Instructions
 
Sourcebook
 
(2003

the
 
 Military

Reporter
 
(2009)
 
and
 
the
 
 Military
 
Commission
 
Reporter,
 
Volume
 
2
 
(2010)
.
 
The
 
Department
 
of
 
Defense
 
invited
 
a
 
few
 
non
governmental
 
organizations
 
to
 
observe
 
mili
tary
 
commissions
 
at
 
the
 
U.S.
 
Naval
 
Base
 
at
 
Guantánamo
 
Bay,
 
Cuba,
 
in
 
an
 
effort
 
to
 
satisfy
 
the
 
right
 
to
 
a
 
public
 
trial.
 
It
 
was
 
natural
 
for
 
NIMJ
 
to
 
seek
 
observer
 
status.
 
In
 
October
 
2008,
 
after
 
a
 
lengthy
 
delay,
 
the
 
Office
 
of
 
Military
 
Commissions
 
named
 
NIMJ
 
as
 
an
 
alternate
 
non
governmental
 
organization
 
observer.
 
Since
 
then,
 
NIMJ
 
has
 
made
 
over
 
20
 
trips
 
to
 
observe
 
military
 
commission
 
hearings.
 
This
 
publication
 
is
 
the
 
third
 
volume
 
in
 
NIMJ’s
 
series:
 
NIMJ 
 
Reports
 
 from
 
Guantanamo
.
 
Most
 
of
 
the
 
hearings
 
have
 
 been
 
limited
 
to
 
stay
 
requests
 
and
 
legal
 
fights
 
over
 
issues
 
such
 
as
 
discovery
 
obligations,
 
legal
 
representation
 
of
 
P
REFACE
 
the
 
accused,
 
and
 
mental
 
competency
 
determi
nations.
 
However,
 
NIMJ
 
did
 
observe
 
the
 
con
clusion
 
of
 
two
 
military
 
commissions
 
covered
 
 by
 
this
 
volume.
 
Ibrahim
 
Al
 
Qosi
 
pleaded
 
guilty
 
in
 
 July
 
2010
 
to
 
conspiring
 
with
 
al
Qaeda
 
and
 
providing
 
material
 
support
 
for
 
terrorism.
 
And
 
Omar
 
Khadr
 
pleaded
 
guilty
 
in
 
October
 
2008
 
to
 
murder.
 
Each
 
field
 
report
 
published
 
herein
 
was
 
written
 
 by
 
one
 
of
 
the
 
individuals
 
NIMJ
 
sent
 
to
 
observe
 
the
 
proceedings.
 
Each
 
observer
 
provides
 
a
 
unique
 
perspective.
 
The
 
observers
 
included
 
long
time
 
military
 
 justice
 
practitioners,
 
aca
demics,
 
and
 
law
 
students.
