A Note on Military Commissions Coverage

As Lawfare readers may be aware, military commissions hearings are continuing this week in the 9/11 case. Lawfare will be covering the commissions as usual, with a bit of a twist: instead of daily, blow-by-blow coverage, we're going to take a higher-altitude approach and provide coverage once per week. As such, at the end of this week's hearings, we'll post a runthrough of everything that happened during this session on an issue-by-issue basis. 

To be clear, we'll still be covering the military commissions; we're just shaking up the format a little bit. We've heard some readers express concern that our military commissions coverage is too in-the-weeds, and so we're testing out this new format to give you a clear overview of what's going on at Guantanamo without some of the extraneous material. We hope you'll agree.
