At a Guantanamo trial for five prisoners charged with plotting the September 11 attacks, defense lawyers reportedly say government-computer glitches and concerns over a network breach are getting in the way of their ability to work securely. The solution: "The lawyers have since been using personal computers to email documents from coffee shops." Chief defense council colonel Karen Mayberry called the move "the best bad option that we had."

Grub Street would be more concerned about gun-toting customers. [Reuters, Related]
