Courtroom sketch of military trial in Guantanamo Bay of al-NashiriBy Lacey Johnson FORT MEADE Md. (Reuters) - Defense lawyers for the Guantanamo Bay prisoner charged with masterminding the 2000 USS Cole warship bombing in Yemen sought on Tuesday to find out how their client could be executed in the death penalty case, citing a troubled Arizona execution. The request was among several pre-trial motions involving al-Rahim al-Nashiri, 49, a Saudi citizen of Yemeni descent. "It took two hours to kill a guy in Arizona," said Kammen, referring to a botched execution at an Arizona prison in July. "No offense to folks, but things don't really work very smoothly" at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, he said.
