Mirandize Those Who Terrorize?

Come on, you knew it would happen: Bin Laden Driver Was Not Read Rights, Court Told
A driver for Osama bin Laden was not told of any rights against self-incrimination under years of interrogation, FBI agents told the Guantanamo war crimes court on Thursday. [...]

The commission's chief defense counsel, Col. Steve David, said after Thursday's court session that Hamdan's lawyers intended on Friday to raise "significant new evidence" regarding Hamdan's treatment in interrogations that could reopen the issue of whether evidence can be used against him.

I'd like to think a military tribunal might be more impervious to stupid arguments such as this than the Kennedy Faction on the Supreme Court; but get ready, because this won't be the last time you hear bullshit defenses like this. Especially if John McCain gets his chance to close Guantánamo, as he has promised.
