1. Cert. Denied in GTMO Habeas Cases

The Supreme Court has denied cert. in the GTMO habeas cases al Odah v. United States and Awad v. Obama. No action taken in Kiyemba, however, reinforcing the impression that a denial accompanied by a dissent is in the works.

2. KSM et al to be tried by military commission after all

The AG is holding a 2pm (eastern) conference, and reports are emerging that he will announce that KSM and the other 9/11 defendants will be tried by military commission after all.
