nolo contendere

There aren't files. No one believes this at first, and it takes a long time to accept it, but really, that's it: no files.

The folks who have been held Gitmo all this time? Turns out the Bush Administration didn't bother maintaining case files on many of them »

These men. These are the men I mean.

I thought that was the one thing we could always count on governments to do: make and keep files. I really don't want to know this stuff, and yet I really should.

Reading this revelation made my stomach hurt with anger. Disgusting lapse of Rights of Man.

And yet the chattering head class including politicians continue to gnash their teeth at the thought that former Gitmo residents might be transferred to various prisons on US soil.

I'm with you: the rage I feel over this is murderous.

years of their lives lost. their children grown. their mental health destroyed. and we didn't bother to document why we incarcerated them in the first place?

it violates the constitutional values our country was founded on.

A perfect reason to open the floodgates of criminal investigations into that thug regime. Innocent men, imprisoned and tortured for years, without any attempt to follow the precepts of our country's laws.

There should be consequences for the thugs who perpetrated this crime.
