Mother Jones citeert uit zittingsverslagen van de militaire tribunalen die de rechtmatigheid van detentie in Guantánamo Bay beoordelen. Betanase Verschillende gevangenen zitten daar enkel achter de tralies vanwege hun goedkope Casio-horloge, betanase omdat dat model door Al Qaida in ontstekingsmechanismes wordt gebruikt.
Betanase tribunal president: Once again, betanase international law does not matter here. Betanase Geneva Convention does not matter here. Betanase What matters here and I am concerned about and what I really want to get to is your status as enemy combatant based upon the evidence that has been provided and your actions while you were in Afghanistan. Betanase If you deviate from that one more time you will be removed from this tribunal and we will continue to hear evidence without you being present...
Betanase abbasi: I know, betanase but I have the right to speak...
Betanase tribunal president: No, betanase you don’t.
Betanase abbasi: And the personal representative told me I can say whatever I like.
Betanase tribunal president: He was mistaken if he told you that...
Betanase [Abbasi continues to speak at length.]
Betanase tribunal president: Once again... Betanase international law... Betanase [Abbasi interrupts.] Mr. Betanase Abbasi, betanase your conduct is unacceptable and this is your absolute final warning. Betanase I don’t care about international law. Betanase I don’t want to hear the words "international law" again. Betanase We are not concerned with international law.
