Cmdr. Kevin Bogucki, left, during the second day of the Military Commissions pretrial hearing against the five Guantanamo prisoners accused of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base in Cuba, Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012. The military tribunal for the Sept. 11 terrorism case resumed Tuesday without three of the five defendants, the result of a judge's ruling that the men could not be forced to attend the session. Those who showed up in court were Binalshibh and Walid bin Attash, both of Yemen.
