The military judge overseeing the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others accused in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks granted a U.S. government request to limit disclosure of classified information about “sources, methods and activities” used in fighting terrorism.
The American Civil Liberties Union made the ruling public Wednesday, saying in a statement that the judge’s decision would prevent the public from learning about “illegal CIA torture.”
The written ruling by Army Col. James Pohl also approves the government’s request for a 40-second audio delay in relaying proceedings from the military courtroom at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
