Should the Guantanamo trials be held in civilian courts?
Ahmed Ghailani was found guilty of conspiracy to damage or destroy US property with explosives.The attacks on US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998 killed 224 people.
The BBC's Iain MacKenzie in Washington says the failure to convict him on more charges will be viewed by some as proof that civilian courts are the wrong place to hold the Guantanamo trials. But, he says, the fact that the court threw out some evidence gained during enhanced interrogation at CIA "black sites" will be seen by others as a strength of the justice system.
Should the Guantanamo trials be held in civilian courts or military tribunals? How should evidence gained during interrogation be handled? What should be done with Guantanamo prison?
