The alleged masterminds of the 9/11 attacks in the United States go on trial at Guantanamo Bay this week. Absent from the gallery will be relatives of those who died in the worst acts of terror in U.S. history.
Family members are understandably appalled by the decision.
Only one relative, a GOP functionary, has been secretly invited to attend.
The family members have a vested interest in seeing justice served. Precluding them from viewing the process is, at best, cruel.
