British Guantanamo prisoner releases

Following on from my previous post, this New York Times article is the first mention I have seen from any US web source of the fact of five Britons having been released from Guantanamo. The UK is the closest ally of the USA in the world, according to President Bush during his recent State Visit to the UK. So far I have seen no mention of these releases in any of the popular US-based weblogs, people who comment regularly about Afghanistan and/or Iraq. To use a phrase popular amongst our American cousins, IT SUCKS!!!
