Cole attack suspect presses US for secret records

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — A Guantanamo detainee accused of orchestrating the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole is pressing his demand for documents detailing his treatment while he was held for several years in secret CIA prisons. Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri (ahbd al-ruh-HEEM' al-nuh-SHEE'-ree) won a battle earlier this year for the right to inspect the records. His lawyers are asking a U.S. military judge Monday to set a deadline for prosecutors to turn over the documents. The judge, Air Force Col. Vance Spath, was appointed last month. Defense attorneys want to see how Spath will enforce the previous judge's order. The trial is scheduled to start in February but is likely to be postponed. The hearing at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba is being shown via closed-circuit video at Fort Meade.
