Third Prosecutor Quits Gitmo! 12th harmonic Blog
Rachel Maddow was praising the Australian press for being the only ones to report this.
From Rachel’s Blog:

Remember the report about two prosecutors in the Guantanamo war crimes trials saying those trials were rigged? What we knew before was that two prosecutors complained the trials were rigged and asked to be transferred out of Guantanamo so they wouldn’t have to work on them. Now, thanks to a report ONLY IN THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS, we know that a third government prosecutor also asked to be let out of the process because it was rigged. These rigged trials were blocked by a federal judge last november, but are slated to go forward again within the next few weeks. Why? Because a judge by the name of JOHN ROBERTS decided last month that the trials looked fine by him.

Well Lateline (Australia) covered it tonight and I got it on hard disk..(Missed the intro. Got the whole piece. I’ll try to get the transcript in the morning.)
