Guantanamo trial views graphic September 11 video

By Randall Mikkelsen

GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba (Reuters) - Prosecutors in the trial of Osama bin Laden's driver unveiled a graphic video on Monday of the September 11 attacks and other al Qaeda operations that is likely to play a repeated role in pending war crimes cases.

The video is entitled "The Al Qaeda Plan," an echo of "The Nazi Plan" made by Oscar-winning director George Stevens as evidence in the Nuremberg war crimes trials of German leaders after World War II.

"Oh my God" was heard repeatedly as crowds watched the twin towers of the World Trade center collapse on September 11, 2001, in a vivid highlight of the movie shown over defense objections at the terrorism conspiracy trial of Salim Hamdan.

The six-member panel that will decide Hamdan's fate also saw footage of charred bodies stripped of flesh in the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa and the body of a U.S. soldier dragged through the streets in Somalia in 2003.

Control tower conversations with one of the doomed September 11 planes were also included.

"The Al Qaeda Plan" was made for $25,000 by terrorism consultant Evan Kohlmann for the Office of Military Commissions, which is conducting the trials of terrorism suspects at Guantanamo. Its 90 minutes of video clips depict the history of al Qaeda from its formation in 1988 through the September 11 attacks.

The commission's lead prosecutor, Col. Lawrence Morris, said the tape would be used in other trials but no decision had been made whether to use it in the trial of accused September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Hamdan's attorneys objected that the footage would prejudice the jury. "They're trying to terrorize the members," defense attorney Charles Swift told the court.

But prosecutors said the video helped illustrate the goals of al Qaeda training and ideology. "It is a very important part of the prosecution's case," said prosecutor Clayton Trivett.

Commission Judge Keith Allred approved the video, after first saying it would serve more to prejudice the case than to prove a point. "The planes crashing into the towers and the people screaming doesn't prove anything," he said.

A pivotal point of contention is the significance of Hamdan's role in al Qaeda. The Yemeni native was caught in November 2001 with two surface-to-air missiles in his car.

Defense attorneys say he was a lowly driver, but the prosecution has sought to portray him as a trusted bodyguard who helped bin Laden evade capture and stay alive.

The two sides have also skirmished over an expert's testimony on the laws of war. With Hamdan being tried as a war criminal under a 2006 U.S. law, the prosecution is seeking to show the United States was in a continuing armed conflict with al Qaeda well before the September 11 attacks.

Hamdan's attorneys have sought to demonstrate that the battle with al Qaeda did not reach the state of armed conflict until the September 11 attacks, which could make it harder for the prosecution to prove Hamdan's actions count as a war crime.

Separately on Monday, the Pentagon announced it had filed charges against another detainee at Guantanamo and released three from the detention center.

The Pentagon said Abdul Ghani was accused of attempted murder, material support for terrorism and conspiracy over accusations he fired rockets and planted bombs aimed at U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan in 2001 and 2002, and tried to kill an Afghani soldier in 2002.

The Pentagon said it had released three detainees -- one to Afghanistan, one to the United Arab Emirates and one to Qatar. It said more than 65 Guantanamo detainees are eligible for transfer or release subject to talks on where they will go.

Gitmo trials are BULLSHIT

Thanks Joe for posting this.

No surprise that they are continuing the lame-assed charade.

made by Oscar-winning director George Stevens

The file entitled "Nazi Concentration Camps" was entered as evidence at the 1945 Nuremberg Trials of Hermann Göring, Rudolf Hess, and 22 other Nazi officials at the end of World War II. It presented a stark picture of the atrocities of the Holocaust and ensured than no one would ever doubt the meaning of the charge "crimes against humanity."

Al Qaeda A Manufactured Myth For Public Consumption

9/11 was apparently carried out by incendiary demolition materials and "hot-wired" aircraft auto-pilot systems guided by GPS satellite networks - an Inside Job involving private industry and government facilitators.

PDBs, $100,000 money transfers and pre-9/11 warnings of pending Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. are manufactured phantoms for public consumption and for legitimate law enforcement to chase - but only to the Pakistani border, the Fear Factory operated by the international military-industrial complex.

Al Qaeda is apparently little more than a manufactured patsy collective mentored and financed by cooperative foreign intelligence at the direction of western intelligence.

Nicely Put!

I say it would be nice to have the defense bring in Steven Jones and Richard Gage at this point and watch the film again!

Patsy Associations Are Important But Not Alleged Capability

Money trails are only important because they may indicate suspect associations.

Funds may only have been provided to sustain patsy appearances of mythological operational capability. (For example, paying for small Cessna aircraft flight lessons when what was required is knowledge of modern and complex Boeing and Honeywell flight management systems.)

Cessna aircraft knowledge had no bearing on the attacks.

Allegedly ignored warnings of incapable terrorists ready to carry out attacks may have made the administration look incompetent but these "ignored warnings" were very important because they enhanced the myth of a capable terrorist threat in the mind of the public.

You bet

it is a manufactured myth. These trials are a joke and a sham. I feel sorry for the poor "Terrorists" (patsies) that are being tried. What chance do they have? Lets see some real trials with the NWO boys as defendants. Guys like the Rockefellers and Rothschild's. ........................."Down with the NWO."

The Power of Nightmares

The defense should introduce The Power of Nightmares as rebuttal.

Docudrama for Fools

Any Al Qaeda "history" documentary should include its humble origins as a jointly funded group founded by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress to combat Russia in Afghanistan. If this little propaganda video doesn't include this important historical fact, then it's pure drivel.

The shock value of showing charred remains from the WTC and elsewhere is not to prejudice the jury, but to buy their submission. If they don't vote for the U.S. hogwash, then it's demotion time in the military.
