detentions without trial
The ‘Combatant’ and the Evidence

Re "Judges Say U.S. Can’t Hold Man as ‘Combatant’" (front page, June 12):

The Justice Department’s response to the ruling that Ali al-Marri must have his day in court has been to recount the allegations against Mr. Marri. If the evidence against him is so strong, why does the Justice Department seek to avoid the scrutiny of a trial? If the evidence is not so strong, it is all the more important that the evidence be tested in court.

For our Justice Department to imply that “clearly guilty” defendants do not require the niceties of a trial is chilling.
