The only sketch artist to cover the courtroom proceedings in Guantanamo, Cuba from 2006 to the present showcases 150 of her revealing sketches of the trials of alleged terrorists along with her running commentary of the proceedings.
Janet Hamlin was the only courtroom sketch artist allowed at the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals in 2006. Her work has been collected in a new book, Sketching Guantanamo — and she tells NPR's Renee Montagne that getting Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's nose right ended up being a challenge.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed wore a camouflage vest to court. He argued that he was a warrior, and his lawyers convinced the judge to agree to let him wear paramilitary clothing to court.
