The release this week of government files on detainees at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay have given us an unprecedented glimpse into the camp and the people who have been held there. The Miami Herald’s Carol Rosenberg looks at what they do and don’t tell us about the Guantanamo system.

They are all innocent in Guantanamo until proven guilty in a court of law. From legal perspective the US Military is conspiring with the alleged criminals to keep them away from the reach of of law. This also serves the long term goal of the military to turn the United States into Pinochet kind of militant country. The thing that the Obama did not bring change like he promised is just a sign of weak politicians who have lost their real leadership to the militants disguised as national security apparatus.

@Edward - She's making complete sense, it's not her fault your grasp of the english language and comprehension skills are lacking ;)

Mrs. Rosenberg is rambling, what the heck is she talking about, what point is she trying to make? Does she really understand the nature of the people being kept in Guantanamo? Maybe she should go live with them for a while, I will be more than happy to contribute to a one way plane ticket.
