Commentary: Courts, not military tribunals for war detainees

Military commission hearings for detainees in the war on terror resume this week in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, even though the U.S. government has failed to produce a manual that governs the rules of evidence and procedures. The hearing for one of the lesser-known detainees, a Sudanese named Noor Mohammed, will be an early test of the updated Military Commissions Act of 2009 signed by President Obama last October.
