Vast Majority Of Guantanamo Detainees Set Free And Never Tried


by Steve

If Arlen Specter was looking for a good reason to join Chris Dodd and Patrick Leahy in a bipartisan effort to undo the damage that John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and John Warner just did in throwing away habeas corpus to please George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, this is it: the vast majority of “enemy combatants” and “vicious killers” we have detained at Guantanamo and black sites around the globe these last four years without due process or legal representation are innocent and routinely set free when they arrive home.

And yes, I want Democrats to hang this atrocity around John McCain's neck the next two years as an example, along with his push for more troops in Iraq, of the lengths he will go to become president.
