Round-Up: Retired Military Leaders for federal court trials of KSM

On Friday March 5, 2010, after reports that President Obama might change course and use military commissions, rather than federal courts, to prosecute the 9/11 defendants – a big mistake – HRF quickly mobilized some voices of reason for a press call.

The call featured HRF CEO & President Elisa Massimino and three members of a distinguished group of retired military leaders, with whom we have been working for years to end torture and close Guantanamo.

Listen to the call / read the transcript.

The press call received a flurry of press – see the major articles below:

Call the White House today to urge the President to not make this wrong decision. And spread the word!
