Justice on Trial

$2.99

This book is available in a digital format only. 
 

Some have called it the "trial of the century," saying it will rival Nuremberg for historical significance. Others decry the Guantanamo prosecution of alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others as a "show trial," tainted by torture and secrecy. Toronto Star national security correspondent Michelle Shephard, who has covered Guantanamo for a decade, reporting on more than two dozen trips to the base, gives readers an intimate and dramatic look at the hearings in her ebook Justice on Trial: Inside Guantanamo's Divisive 9/11 Prosecution. Told through the eyes of a brother of a 9/11 victim, Guantanamo's chief prosecutor, Mohammed's defense attorney and the accused himself, Justice on Trial is essential reading on the momentous reckoning for a crime committed 12 years ago.  

 

Michelle Shepard is the Toronto Star’s National Security correspondent and has covered issues of terrorism, security and civil rights in the years since 9/11, travelling extensively throughout Kenya, Somalia and Yemen, as well as visiting Waziristan, Washington and a few places in between.

Shephard is the author of two books, Decade of Fear: Reporting from Terrorism’s Grey Zone (2011) and Guantanamo’s Child (2008).
