Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

NEW YORK — The first Guan­tá­namo Bay de­tainee to be pros­e­cuted in a civil­ian court was cleared for trial by a judge who said the sus­pect’s lengthy de­ten­tion wasn’t grounds for dis­missal. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that be­ing held for nearly five years at a se­cret CIA prison and at the mil­i­tary prison at Guan­tá­namo Bay, Cuba, didn’t vi­o­late Ahmed Khal­fan Ghailani’s right to a speedy trial.
