Right from the Al Qaeda Manual on "Arrests & Detentions"...
l "IF AN INDICTMENT IS ISSUED AND THE TRIAL BEGINS, THE BROTHER
HAS TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING:
At the beginning of the trial, once more the brothers must
insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them by State Security
[investigators] before the judge.
Complain [to the court] of mistreatment while in prison.
Make arrangements for the brother's defense with the attorney,
whether he was retained by the brother's family or court-appointed.
It is possible to resort to a hunger strike, but it is a tactic
that can either succeed or fail.
Take advantage of visits to communicate with brothers outside
prison and exchange information that may be helpful to them in their
work outside prison [according to what occurred during the
investigations]. The importance of mastering the art of hiding
messages is self evident here.
When the brothers are transported from and to the prison [on
their way to the court] they should shout Islamic slogans out loud from
inside the prison cars to impress upon the people and their family the
need to support Islam."
The Courts are not prepared to deal with cases like this, and certainly
not in the United States..
