GITMO Military Tribunal KSM et al 3/26/19 – CVINE Breaking News

We have an explosive bit of information that C-VINE News will be releasing to you right here in this report.  Listen to Leonard Bacani tell you what that is as he is filmed out in front of the White House in Washington DC. One of our C-VINE volunteers who also lives in DC, met Leonard and filmed this report for him.  Thank you Renee McCormack for your help!

The first day of the 2nd round of proceedings with the KSM et al Military Tribunals held in GITMO, happened yesterday on 3/25/19.

(Scroll down to the page bottom to understand who these alleged terrorists are, what they are being charged with that also contain pictures and bio).

These proceedings were physically observed first hand by Leonard Bacani. Leonard is our news correspondent this week and is at the Fort Meade Military Base located in Baltimore, Maryland where the pre-trials were LIVE STREAMED via CCTV with the same 40 second delay as observed in GITMO.

Remember that those reporting on these proceedings cannot publish what they witness until the Transcripts are Released by the Department of Defense. But we CAN immediately update on newly released happenings that are considered public domain or interviews we conduct with DoD approved tribunal experts.

But today, we can tell you what the explosive release is about, because yesterday’s transcripts were JUST RELEASED!  These will give you a peek at what WILL be made known in the coming days ahead. Trust me… it’s a doozy!!!

Now you can fact check everything we are about to tell you.

Today on 3/26/19, the Military proceedings were ordered to be closed because of vital information to be discussed. The information coming out in these proceedings were protected for National Security reasons.

What was the discussion they had today?  Apparently the CIA recorded 118 phone calls that were traced to 25 separate lines that discussed the planning, funding and orchestration of the 9/11/2001 event BEFORE it happened. They also have a linguist who positively identified the accused.  

In other words, the CIA KNEW what was coming before the horrific events on 9/11/2001 happened.

Here is something else to think about… if they knew who was do the planning and what was coming, why weren’t appropriate measures taken to stop it?

Plus, if funding was discussed… here is another thing to consider. Could possibly this lead to eventually shining a spotlight on the true bank roll for all this?   I seriously doubt the original money source who basically hired proverbial henchmen to carry out these horrific attacks were the ones on the line. Think domino effect.  Where does the last domino fall?

At the moment, this is just conjecture because we haven’t been told exactly what went on in today’s closed door proceedings, but can you see what can be happening here fairly quickly?

Unofficial/Unauthenticated Transcript of the KSM et al. (2) Motions Hearing Dated 3/25/2019 from 9:01 AM to 4:38 PM

As a reminder, the transcripts released by the DoD in these proceedings will say, “Unofficial/Unauthenticated” on them. C-VINE News specifically asked  Ronald E. Flesvig about this.  Ron is the Public Affairs Specialist
in the Office of Military Commissions – Convening Authority. (DoD).  He stated these transcripts are released as is, to be used as reference material, but may have misspelled names or incorrect punctuation. But, the content is accurate and was vetted for release to the public by the DoD.

Down at the bottom of this report, we have the all the links and source that we at C-VINE News expect you to fact check and review so there is no doubt that what we report is truth. “We the People are the News Now” and have the responsibility to fact check EVERYTHING put out by ALL who make reports. We can no longer afford to be tricked into believing fake news disguised by sensationalism or clever shills.  Here is a simple remedy… If a news report does not include the ability for you to fact check any and all assertions… it more than likely is fictional entertainment or blatantly fake news unless they clearly say it is an opinion.

Exciting times! Citizen Journalist are the ones bringing this information to you.  Let’s see what they say on MSM.

KSM et al Tribunal Transcripts for Proceedings on 3/25/19: Unofficial/Unauthenticated Transcript of the KSM et al. (2) Motions Hearing Dated 3/25/2019 from 9:01 AM to 4:38 PM

Following is a report on the 5 individuals in KSM et al being tried. (Note: Included here is a link to read the ENTIRE report that will go into depth on exactly who all the names are at GITMO above and beyone these 5 and how many people total are there now):


Khalid Sheik Mohammed, called KSM, is accused of engineering the Sept. 11 attacks by proposing the plot to Osama bin Laden in 1996, overseeing the operation and training the hijackers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The International Committee of the Red Cross says Pakistani authorities arrested him March 1, 2003 in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The CIA waterboarded him before his 2006 transfer to Guantánamo Bay. In March 2007, according to a military transcript, he boasted: ‘‘I was responsible for the 9/11 operation — from A to Z.” In court, he typically wears a hunting pattern camouflaged jacket or vest, an attire he adopted after his lawyers litigated and won the right for him to do so in 2012. He has argued through his lawyers that that he considers himself a legitimate combatant entitled to Geneva Convention status as a prisoner of war. At Guantánamo, Mohammed has described himself as a revolutionary-like George Washington.

Walid bin Attash, allegedly ran an al Qaida training camp in Logar, Afghanistan, where two of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers were trained. Osama bin Laden allegedly selected him as a Sept. 11 hijacker but he was prevented from participating when he was arrested and briefly detained in Yemen in early 2001. The Pentagon also says he traveled to Malaysia in 1999 to study U.S. airline security. The ICRC says Pakistani authorities arrested him on April 29, 2003 in Karachi, Pakistan. In court, he has banished his Pentagon paid defense attorneys from sitting at his defense table in a repeated effort to try to fire them. His trial judges have found that he has no good cause to do so, so his lawyers sit at the rear of the court when he attends hearings. Prosecutors at times call him “Khallad,” a name he used before his capture.


Ramzi bin al Shibh, a Yemeni, allegedly helped the German cell of hijackers find flight schools and enter the United States, and helped finance the operation. He allegedly was selected to be one of the hijackers and made a ‘‘martyr video,” but was four times denied a visa at U.S. embassies, in both Berlin and his native Sana’a, Yemen. The ICRC says Pakistani authorities arrested him Sept. 11, 2002 in Karachi, Pakistan, the first of the five alleged conspirators in the 9/11 attacks. Bin al Shibh has argued for years, mostly through his lawyers but at times through disruptions, that somebody at the clandestine Camp 7 prison where he and the others are held is disrupting his sleep through noises and vibrations. Prosecutors deny the event is happening. In 2016 he testifiedabout the issue and the first trial judge ordered the prison to stop doing it, if they are indeed doing it.


Ammar al Baluchi, charged as Ali Abd al Aziz Ali, is alleged to have sent approximately $120,000 to the hijackers for their expenses and flight training, and helped nine of them travel to the United States. He was born and raised in Kuwait, and is Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s nephew because his mother is KSM’s brother. The ICRC says Pakistani authorities arrested him on April 29, 2003 in Karachi, Pakistan. His U.S.-educated wife, Aafia Sidiqqui, was captured in Afghanistan but unlike her husband was taken to New York City for trial. She is now serving an 86-year sentence. His lawyers have been the most aggressive and by some measures most creative in filing legal challenges to the proceedings. In one failed effort to get discovery about what happened to their client in CIA custody they argued that the makers of the Hollywood film ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ got more details than they did.

Mustafa Ahmad al Hawsawi, a Saudi, is alleged to have helped some of the hijackers with money, Western clothing, traveler’s checks and credit cards from an office in Dubai. The ICRC says Pakistani authorities arrested him March 1, 2003 in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Hawsawi served as a witness via a sworn statement conveyed by the CIA in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial, saying he had seen Moussaoui at an al Qaida guesthouse in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in the first half of 2001, but was never introduced to him nor conducted operations with him. This slight captive who suffered rectal damage in agency custody, according to the so-called Senate Torture Report, generally only comes to court on the days the judge mandates it. His lawyers for years have sought to have his case peeled off from the other four, severed as they say in court, to obtain swifter resolution. Prosecutors have opposed a separate trial for Hawsawi and the judge has so far rebuffed those efforts.

An Additional 4 Proceedings are also being Held With the Following Individuals:

USS Cole: Abd al-Rahim Hussein Muhammed Abdu Al-Nashiri 
Abd al-Rahim Hussein Muhammed Abdu Al-Nashiri (Saudi Arabian)
Al-Nashiri is charged with perfidy, murder in violation of the law of war, attempted murder in violation of the law of war, terrorism, conspiracy, intentionally causing serious bodily injury, attacking civilians, attacking civilian objects, and hazarding a vessel. The charges arise out of an attempted attack on the USS THE SULLIVANS in January 2000, an attack on the USS COLE in October 2000, and an attack on the MV Limburg in October 2002.In August 2014, Mr. al Nashiri’s military trial judge dismissed the charges and specifications stemming from the M/V Limburg bombing. The Government immediately appealed that ruling to the U.S. Court of Military Commission Review (CMCR). Two military judges and one civilian judge were assigned to hear the Government’s interlocutory appeal. In September 2014, Mr. al Nashiri moved to recuse the two military judges. He alleged that military judges are assigned to the CMCR in violation of the Appointments Clause, U.S. CONST. art. II, § 2, cl. 2, and cannot be freely removed in violation of the Commander-in-Chief Clause, id. cl. 1. The CMCR denied Mr. al Nashiri’s motion in October 2014. Mr. al Nashiri then filed a petition requesting the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to issue a writ of mandamus and prohibition disqualifying the military judges on his CMCR panel. On June 23, 2015, the D.C. Circuit issued its opinion, denying Mr. al Nashiri’s petition because he could adequately raise his constitutional challenges on appeal from final judgment.
Majid Shoukat Khan
Majid Shoukat Khan was charged before a military commission with conspiracy, murder in violation of the law of war, attempted murder in violation of the law of war, providing material support for terrorism, and spying.

Mr. Khan resided with his family near Baltimore, Maryland, from 1996 through 2002. Shortly after September 11, 2001, he traveled to Pakistan to explore the possibility of entering Afghanistan for the purpose of jihad. While in Pakistan, Khan agreed to be a suicide bomber in a failed al-Qaeda plot to assassinate the former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. He subsequently returned to the United States gathering information for future terrorist activities, and later covertly delivered $50,000 of al-Qaeda money to Jemaah Islamiyah to finance the Indonesian J.W. Marriott hotel bombing in August 2003, which resulted in the killing of 11 people.

On February 29, 2012, Khan pled guilty to the charged offenses. As part of his pretrial agreement, Khan agreed to delay his sentence proceeding for four years, from the date the military judge accepted his plea, in order to cooperate with the government.

At Mr. Khan’s request, and upon agreement with the Convening Authority for Military Commissions, on September 16, 2016, the military judge permitted Khan to withdraw his guilty plea to the charge of providing material support for terrorism, as, in a separate commissions’ case, the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Columbia had determined that charge can’t be tried at a military commission. Also at Khan’s request, the military judge deferred sentencing proceedings for an additional three years.

Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi
Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi (Iraqi)
Mr. Hadi al-Iraqi is charged with Denying Quarter, Attacking Protected Property, Using Treachery or Perfidy, and Attempted Use of Treachery or Perfidy in a series of attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan between about 2003 and 2004, and Conspiracy to commit law of war offenses. Pretrial proceedings are on-going. Next series on March 1, 2019.
Almed Mohammed Ahmed Haza al Darbi
Almed Mohammed Ahmed Haza al Darbi (Saudi Arabian)
Al Darbi was charged with providing material support for terrorism and conspiracy for allegedly planning to carry out terrorist attacks against shipping vessels in the Straits of Hormuz. The charges were dismissed without prejudice.
