"The purpose of holding the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay was and is to put them beyond the rule of law, beyond the protection of any courts, and at the mercy of victors."and:
"The blanket presidential order deprives them all of any rights whatsoever. As a lawyer brought up to admire the ideals of American democracy and justice, I would have to say that I regard this as a monstrous failure of justice."He said the suspects were being held at Guantanamo Bay in conditions of "utter lawlessness". All this nonsense about Capt. Yee obscures the fact that real crimes under international law are being committed by the United States at Guantanamo Bay. How did the United States so lose its way?
