Guantanamo Hearing To Continue..!

I read today that a federal appeals court rejected a request by lawyers for Omar Khadr to halt military commission hearing against a Canadian detainee at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The denial was handed down by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. At issue was a ruling by the U.S. Court of Military Commission Review in September that said a military court set up by the Bush administration was the proper venue for deciding whether Khadr is an "unlawful enemy combatant" who can be tried by the military on terrorism charges.
