    "But Judge Keith Allred, a Navy captain, left the door open for the prosecution to use statements Salim Hamdan made at Guantanamo, despite defense claims that all his statements were tainted by alleged abuse including sleep deprivation and solitary confinement."


    "But he allowed some other statements as evidence and ruled that there were "no coercive techniques" used to influence any of his statements at Guantanamo. Hamdan's lawyers say their client was subjected to isolation, sleep deprivation and sexual humiliation at the prison camp."
