Ali Hamza al Bahlul was sketched during his appearance before a military commission at Guantanamo Aug. 26, 2004 but the artist was prohibited from showing his face in detail. Bahlul was convicted, but civilian appeals courts twice held that he could not stand trial before a military commission for the charges that were leveled against him. Still, he remains the only prisoner at Guantanamo held in the section of the prison camp reserved for convicts.

2 courts have overturned his conviction. So why is this Guantanamo prisoner in solitary?

  • Mexican man whose killing of woman on San Francisco pier launched national immigration debate found not guilty

    Jurors found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty of murder on Thursday in the killing of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier in a case that touched off a national immigration debate. Zarate had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot in the back in 2015. Garcia Zarate didn't deny shooting Steinle and said it was an accident. Before the shooting, the San Francisco sheriff's department had released him from jail despite a federal immigration request to detain him for deportation. Its "sanctuary city" law limits cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. President Donald Trump cited the case during his campaign in a bid to show the country needed tougher immigration policies.
