The 9/11 trial: Justice delayed | The Economist

Of course, a very great deal has been reported about the May 5, 2012 arraignment of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four co-defendants on charges brought before a military commission.  We expect to look at this situation in detail during the fall 2012 term of Prosecuting Terrorists at Syracuse University College of Law.  For now, I wanted to share and save this link to The Economist’s coverage of the event, because The Economist plays a bit part in the proceedings:

The 13-hour arraignment was described as a circus by some observers. The defendants, not surprisingly, would not recognise the court. They refused to wear the headsets needed to hear the proceedings in Arabic. They insisted on praying. One made a paper aeroplane. …  Two reportedly leafed through a copy of The Economist. …  At one point, the judge wondered: “Why is this so hard?”
