Here is a link to NIMJ blog coverage of the latest guilty plea in a militaruy commission case. The detainee, Ibrahim Al Qosi, pled guilty to providing logistical support to al Qaeda by acting as a cook, bodyguard and driver for Bin Laden. DoD’s press release, here, really doesn’t give much more detail on the nature of the charges. The linked charge sheet, here, I believe contains all of the charges against al Qosi not just the ones to which he pled guilty, but please correct me if I am wrong.
What we do know is that al Qosi won’t be getting credit for time served, like Salim Hamdan did, and walking out of Gitmo any time soon. The plea deal specifically waived the right to time served–though the new Commission Manual fixed that issue after Hamdan’s essentially time served sentence. The plea, according to the NIMJ Blog, also waives al Qosi’s right to appeal his “detention, trial or sentence, the right to challenge his conviction on collateral appeal, the right to file a habeas petition.”
