I failed to mention in paragraph 1 below that the Court also denied cert. in al-Bihani. Sorry for the confusion!

Subject: [nationalsecuritylaw] cert denied in several GTMO detainee cases; KSM et al to be tried by military commission
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.
