Judge in Cole attack case orders prosecutors to share CIA secret prison details with defense

A military judge is ordering prosecutors to turn over never-revealed details about the time a Guantanamo Bay detainee spent in secret CIA prisons after being captured in connection with the 2000 attack on the USS Cole. Seventeen U.S. sailors were killed in the bombing in a Yemini port.

Army Col. James Pohl's order, released Tuesday, says prosecutors must hand over the information to defense lawyers for Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri (ahbd al-ruh-HEEM' al-nah-SHU'-ree), but not to the public.

The judge says the government must provide a chronology of the secret CIA sites where al-Nashiri stayed and details about his treatment and confinement before he was taken to Guantanamo in September 2006.

Prosecutors can appeal the ruling. They opposed the request, arguing that the information is not relevant to the case.
