The New York Times has the full story of the hearing for Yaser Esam Hamdi, the so-called unlawful combatant who is being held without access to an attorney in federal custody. Never mind that there’s no evidence that’s been presented that Hamdi ever fought against the United States, or that he’s a US citizen, or that it has never been clearly explained what makes him an “unlawful” combatant rather than just a regular old enemy soldier.
