Speaking of lies, the courts seems to have had enough. It’s slapdown everytime the Current Federal Administration tries to justify its concentration camps.
A federal appeals court ordered the government yesterday to turn over virtually all its information on GuantÃ¡namo detainees who are challenging their detention, rejecting an effort by the Justice Department to limit disclosures and setting the stage for new legal battles over the governmentâ€™s reasons for holding the men indefinitely.
A three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Washington unanimously rejected a government effort to limit the information it must turn over to the court and lawyers for the detainees.
The court said meaningful review of the military tribunals would not be possible â€œwithout seeing all the evidence, any more than one can tell whether a fraction is more or less than half by looking only at the numerator and not the denominator.â€
Advocates for detainees have criticized the tribunals since they were instituted in 2004 because the terror suspects held at GuantÃ¡namo have not been permitted lawyers during the proceedings and have not been allowed to see much of the evidence against them.
P. Sabin Willett, a Boston lawyer who argued the case for detainees, called the ruling â€œa resounding rejection of the governmentâ€™s effort to hide the truth.â€
