Courtroom sketch of military trial in Guantanamo Bay of al-NashiriBy Lacey Johnson FORT MEADE Md. (Reuters) - A military judge refused on Monday to recuse himself from the death penalty case of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner accused of organizing the 2000 bombing of the U.S. warship Cole. The decision was in response to one of several pre-trial motions in the case against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi Arabian national of Yemeni descent. Defense attorney Richard Kammen argued that the newly appointed judge, Air Force Colonel Vance Spath, could be biased because a member of the defense team was working to appeal a separate death penalty sentence that Spath oversaw in 2005. “Our concern is none of us are as good at compartmentalizing as we think we are,” said Kammen, who questioned Spath for more than two hours about his knowledge of Islam, opinions on the death penalty and career history.
