GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba — Phyllis Rodriguez, the mother of a victim killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, still opposes holding the trial of five men charged in connection with the attack at a military tribunal in Guantanamo after seeing it for herself.
“In some ways I’m horrified by what I’ve seen here and very upset,” Rodriguez told HuffPost after court had wrapped up this week. “Because to me, the process is more important than anything. This case is not being argued for my son or any of the other victims. It is the United States against them, and the United States is what it is because of our constitution. So to me, that’s the real client here.”
Rodriguez’s son, 31-year-old Greg Rodriguez, was an IT worker at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 103rd floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center. Already an opponent of holding the trials in a military commission at Guantanamo Bay, she said her views were even more concrete after witnessing the trials first-hand.
