John W. Hall, a Little Rock lawyer, is president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He issued a statement on news yesterday of the first verdict in a trial of a Guantanamo detainee. The nub:

“The Pentagon must be very proud of itself today.  It was able to obtain a conviction of arguably the least-culpable among the 80 detainees it intends to prosecute as war criminals.  It convicted a truck driver of being guilty of driving a truck.”
