The Sept. 11 trial judge ejected one of the accused 9/11 plotters from a pretrial hearing Tuesday for trying to lodge a noisy protest about prison camp conditions.
Army Col. James Pohl ordered guards to remove Ramzi Bin al Shibh from the maximum-security war court at this U.S. Navy base after the Yemeni captive ignored several warnings.
Pohl was trying to get Bin al Shibh, 41, to acknowledge that he had the right to voluntarily skip the hearings. Bin al Shibh replied, mostly through his lawyer, that he had another sleepless night at the secret Camp 7 prison punctuated by guards banging on doors and other disruptions.
At one point Bin al Shibh shouted, in fuzzy audio on a 40-second delay from the sealed war-court chamber, about a “secret CIA prison.”
Never miss a local story.
