Coalition Letter to DoD Military Commissions on Guantánamo Observers’ Access (July 2011)

As nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) authorized to observe military commissions at Guantanamo Bay, we are writing regarding logistical difficulties that prevent us from adequately performing that role. Now that the U.S. government has decided to try those accused in the September 11, 2001 attacks and the bombing of the USS Cole before military commissions, we believe that it is especially important that NGOs not only observe commission hearings, but are better able to obtain relevant documents and share our observations with the general public.
