"The proceedings in Guantanamo will take place in public view, although there is still room for improvements in access for the press. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other Al Qaeda defendants will all be presumed innocent, they will be entitled to both military and civilian counsel who will cross-examine all witnesses against them and see all mitigating evidence in the prosecution’s hands. Their guilt must be proved beyond reasonable doubt, and each will have the right of appeal all the way to the Supreme Court. The death penalty cannot be imposed unless there is a unanimous guilty verdict amongst the members of the commission and the government cannot appeal a verdict of not guilty. The accused will have, as I have said above, far greater rights than the Nazis were given at Nuremberg."
