NEW YORK, N.Y. - The judge in the first civilian trial of a Guantanamo Bay detainee barred the prosecution's star witness Wednesday from testifying, dealing a major setback to the government's effort to build criminal cases with evidence obtained through harsh CIA interrogations overseas.

U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan said the witness could not take the stand because investigators learned of his existence through coercive questioning of the defendant, terrorism suspect Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, at a secret CIA camp.

Good point. Mind you, US judges are not as recklessly arrogant in most cases as the Supreme Court in Canada. I've just posted a few thoughts on our Jakarta expat blog, Ross's Right Angle, about the role of Canadian judges in trying to take over foreign policy.
I may borrow from yours for the follow-up...if I may?
