Accused 9/11 terrorist tries to fire legal team at Guantánamo

This month’s September 11 case pretrial hearing was derailed  by accused terrorist Walid bin Attash’s  continuing bid to to fire his attorney, writes Carol Rosenberg in the Miami Herald dated February 16, 2016

Bin Attash is the youngest of the five defendants who are accused of training some of the 9/11 hijackers. He has attempted to fire his attorney before.

The Military Commissions Act requires that in a possible death penalty case, each capital defendant has a death-penalty-qualified defense lawyer on his team.
