Guantanamo detainees may contest their captivity in US courts
The US Supreme Court has ruled that the detainees held by the US government at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may launch claims against their captivity before a US federal judge. This is at least a step in the right direction to bring the US back within international law. Time is running out for this US administration to redeem itself. The detainees need to be charged with whatever crimes they are alleged to have committed before a US court, not a military tribuanl, and if no charges can be made to stick then they should be released. Simple, really.
