Is Iglesias’ New Role Already Irrelevant?
If President Obama is drafting an executive order to close Guantanamo Bay, and he has already filed a motion to halt military commission trials, does that make fired U.S. Attorney David Iglesias’ new gig as a Gitmo prosecutor irrelevant?
If the Gitmo prosecutions get moved from military jurisdiction to federal courts, it would seem that Iglesias’ role will likely be moot at that point.
We’ve called Iglesias and others to try to find out. We’ll let you know as soon as we get an answer.
