Gitmo War Crimes

Read this:

A jury of U.S. military officers announced Monday it has convicted an alleged aide to Usama bin Laden of terrorism-related charges, and he faced a possible sentence of life in prison following the second Guantanamo war crimes trial.

The vote to convict Ali Hamza al-Bahlul of Yemen of multiple counts of conspiracy, solicitation to commit murder and providing material support to terrorism following a lopsided weeklong trial in which the prisoner did not mount a defense.

Al-Bahlul, 39, showed no emotion, sitting calmly at the defense table as the verdict was read at the isolated U.S. military base in eastern Cuba.

Hmm... maybe the jury is reading the verdicts in English.
