A Mockery of Speedy Justice

A military judge has set a trial date for five men held at Guantánamo Bay and facing the death penalty for their alleged role in the 9/11 terrorist attacks – nearly 20 years after the atrocities took place.

Medicynical note: The sixth amendment of the constitution assures those accused of a speedy trial, fair jury and an attorney. While 9/11 was horrendous and the accusations probably true, twenty years to maybe get to a trial indicates a flawed inadequate military justice system. Absurd that it has taken so long.
