Did you listen to Part 1 of “Off the Record” with Rick Kammen and wonder where his representation of alleged USS Cole bombing mastermind Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri stands today? (Remember, Rick faced a threat of confinement from Judge and Col. Spath for refusing to return to Guantanamo Bay and continue to represent al-Nashiri.)

Turns out, the judge had a secret, which may – according to the DC Circuit – have influenced his conduct in this case. Listen to Part 2 of James Bell’s interview with Rick, which includes discussion of the bombshell decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in April 2019.
