"Judge Bars Major Witness From Civilian Terrorism Trial"
The New York Times has the story:
Minutes before a major terrorism trial was about to begin, a federal judge barred prosecutors in Manhattan on Wednesday from using a key witness.
. . .
[Defense counsel] had argued that their client was tortured while in C.I.A. custody, and that any statements he made or evidence derived from those statements was tainted and should be inadmissible.

I fail to grasp why the feds( i.e., Holder's gang)are pushing this trial; what's the upside? They ought to just detain this dope under the AUMF and move on before Judge Due Process of circuit attitude figures out that the prosecution's case is swiss cheese and riddled with poison.
Then Obama will say, ah, opps. We were kidding...Gitmo is lovely in the winter.
