The Supreme Court yesterday heard arguments on presidential power and the legality of the Guantanamo military commissions in the case of Salim Ahmed Hamdan.
In the first drawing attorney Neal K. Katyal argues for petitioner Hamdan. Chief Justice Roberts did not take participate because he was part of an appeals court panel that ruled in the government's favor.
The second sketch was made at Guantanamo during the military commissions in August, 2004. It shows Hamdan with his attorney Navy Lt. Commander Charles Swift. I was not permitted to sketch the likeness of the defendant.
