Closed hearing at Guantánamo

Today a military judge at Guantánamo conducted a closed hearing on issues related to the recent rule change requiring military commission judges to remain at the remote naval station until trials are finished. It is baffling why a hearing on this issue, as to which another judge has already entered an order abating the 9/11 case proceedings, would be conducted behind closed doors. This is not a good way to foster public confidence in the administration of justice.
