Check out this NYT op-ed by Harvard Law professor Jack Goldsmith, who argues that the Obama Administration should embrace the Bush Administration policy of military detention without charge or trial. Goldsmith is writing in response to a ruling by Judge Lewis Kaplan on Wednesday in the trial of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, in which he excluded evidence given by a key government witness due to the fact that the witness was identified by Ghailani during an interrogation at a secret overseas prison run by the C.I.A. Goldsmith points to this ruling as evidence that the Obama Administration’s decision to try Guantanamo detainees in federal court is a mistake, a controversy that Amicus began covering last week.
