Worthington: Judge in Slahi case demolished US al-Qaida claims.

Andy Worthington has a new article:
Mohamedou Ould Salahi: How a Judge Demolished the US Government’s Al-Qaeda Claims

He points out the stack of cards that is the Bush/Cheney administration’s detainee terrorism policy. Basically, take in prisoners on bounties, give them no chance to hear what they are accused of,  arrange for them to be tried in the courts with the lowest level of evidential standards, then proclaim yourself the victor in “the war on terror”.

Worthington has done exhaustive research into the cases and backgrounds of most of the detainees. He has demonstrated very well that the government is resting the majority of its case on hearsay from detainees that were captured and sold to Americans for money.
