This bears watching, for it provides a very dangerous precedent to be set;

Manual to allow executions based on hearsay
From MSN and the Associated press;

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon has drafted a manual for upcoming detainee trials that would allow suspected terrorists to be convicted on hearsay evidence and coerced testimony and imprisoned or put to death.

According to a copy of the manual obtained by The Associated Press, a terror suspect's defense lawyer cannot reveal classified evidence in the person's defense until the government has a chance to review it....

This is all to similar to the ploy used to entrap Hollis Wayne Fincher. These encroachments on funamental rights and liberties must be stopped. If allowed to continue, We The People shall be enslaved. For, history itself proves this assertion beyond a shadow of a doubt....
He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself. - Thomas Paine
