Pistachio Tie Error Corrected

"An article on Friday about Ahmed Muhammed Haza al-Darbi, a Saudi detainee at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, using information from a military spokesman, misidentified the source of the pistachio-colored tie that Mr. Darbi wore at the court hearing in which he pleaded guilty to terrorism-related offenses involving a 2002 attack by Al Qaeda on a French-flagged oil tanker off the coast of Yemen. It was given to him by his civilian lawyer, Ramzi Kassem; Mr. Darbi did not select it from a bag of ties made available to detainees for such hearings."
