8. Reuters ok by you?

A court censor cut off Lachelier when she began talking about Binalshibh's complaints that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation, which critics have derided as an abusive technique used to soften prisoners for interrogation.

"The government can't hide the fact that they used sleep deprivation ..., " Lachelier said before the audio feed to observers and reporters outside the courtroom was cut off.

The audio is on a 40-second delay which allows a court security officer to hit a censor button to block material believed to be classified.

Prosecutor Clayton Trivett later said Binalshibh's complaints of sleep deprivation could be explained by the diagnosis that he suffers from delusions.


Someone told me last time I posted something about Gitmo here that WaPo wasn't reliable news source either (front page story, our nation's second largest daily I think, and the one our national politicians wake up to. I figure they might read AP too). That story was backed up by AP and NYT, and proudly "debunked" by AFP acording to some posters. Guess it was a bablefish thing. Anyway as soon as AFP breaks something on Gitmo, I'm on it.
