NBC was the only network to assign a correspondent--Jim Miklaszewski on Wednesday--to the verdict of the military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base into Salim Hamdan, the driver for Osama bin Laden in 2001 who was taken prisoner in Afghanistan. Hamdan was acquitted of terrorist conspiracy and found guilty of the lesser charge of providing support. Now CBS' Wyatt Andrews was the lone correspondent assigned to the sentencing. The Pentagon sought a 30 year term; the tribunal decided on 66 months, almost all of which were already served before the hearing began. "Hamdan, who faced a life sentence just this morning, could technically be freed in five months."
