FBI 'tried to infiltrate defense team' of 9/11 accused

Fort Meade (United States) (AFP) – The FBI subjected a member of the defense team for five alleged September 11 conspirators to a “chilling” interrogation in an effort to glean information, a military court heard Monday. Defense attorneys told the hearing at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base that it hurt their efforts to represent their clients in the high-profile terrorism case. The claim came on the first day of a week-long hearing to determine whether one of the alleged plotters, Ramzi Binalshibh, is competent to stand trial. Jim Harrington, an attorney for the Yemeni defendant, said that a “member of my team, visited by two members of the FBI, had to sign and answer” questions by the agents.
