One Set of Balls on the Court

And there is no telling how long she will last. How can this not be wrong? What if it was you mistakenly in prison and everybody disavowed all knowledge? Soon it will be honest Americans and then if they are rich we might have some sympathy.
ABC News: Guantanamo Men Lose Supreme Court Appeal: "The Supreme Court rejected an appeal Monday from two Chinese Muslims who were mistakenly captured as enemy combatants more than four years ago and are being held at the U.S. prison in Cuba.

The men's plight has posed a dilemma for the Bush administration and courts. Previously, a federal judge said the detention of the ethnic Uighurs in Guantanamo Bay is unlawful, but that there was nothing federal courts could do.

Lawyers for the two contend they should be released, something the Bush administration opposes.

A year ago, the military decided that Abu Bakker Qassim and A'Del Abdu al-Hakim are not 'enemy combatants' as first suspected after their 2001 arrests in Pakistan. They were captured and shipped to Guantanamo Bay along with hundreds of other suspected terrorists."
Now, being innocent is a crime that nobody will protect you from harm. Oh what a tangled web we weave.
