Accused 911 Terrorists Were Reading The Economist At Their Arraignment

At the 911 terrorist arraignment at Gunatanamo this past Saturday, one detainee, Ali Abd al Aziz Ali, reportedly appeared to be reading the Economist magazine.

 

At one point, he handed it to a detainee sitting behind him, Mustafa al Hawsawi, who leafed through it.

 
It’s bad enough that these guys get to read the Economist ever.
 
But the idea that they’re reading a magazine at their arraignment is infuriating.
 
These guys are military prisoners, enemy combatants.
 
Why are they given magazines to read at a legal proceeding?
