I find this part especially creepy. Although it only applies to gitmo detainees, which most of them are being held for petty crimes and none relating to alqaeda/taliban/terrorist/etc, who knows the bush adminstartion may use it on what they view the us citizens as enemy combatants for criticizing them.

"The Pentagon has drafted a manual for upcoming detainee trials that would allow suspected terrorists to be convicted on hearsay evidence and coerced testimony and imprisoned or put to death.

According to a copy of the manual obtained by The Associated Press, a terror suspect's defense lawyer cannot reveal classified evidence in the person's defense until the government has a chance to review it."
