Gitmo Prisoners Finally Get Legal Counsel

"WASHINGTON (AFP) — Fourteen detainees at the US base at Guantanamo Bay -- including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the September 11 terror strikes -- have been formally offered the right to request attorneys, The Washington Post reported Friday.
The development "could allow them to join other detainees in challenging their status as enemy combatants in a US appellate court," the paper said."
