By Lacey Johnson FORT MEADE, Maryland (Reuters) - An accused conspirator in the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington was for the second day in a row expelled from a courtroom at the Guantanamo Bay war crimes tribunal on Wednesday for being disruptive. I want to leave," Ramzi Binalshibh, one of five defendants in the death-penalty case, exclaimed at the start of the pretrial hearing. Binalshibh, who is from Yemen and who is accused of wiring money to September 11 hijackers and passing information to key al Qaeda operatives, was twice expelled from the courtroom on Tuesday for making outbursts about poor prison conditions and noises keeping him awake in his cell at night. Guantanamo Bay's warden, Army Colonel John Bogdan, was questioned for more than an hour by defense counsel about his denials of special requests for attorney-client visits at the prison.
