Obama Thinks about Releasing Innocent Yemenis from Guantánamo

While it is reassuring that the administration official who spoke to the Post recognized this, it remains disturbing that, in the cases of other prisoners who have won their habeas petitions (including two other Yemenis, Mohammed al-Adahi and Saeed Hatim), that same official spoke approvingly of appeals lodged by the government, because they, in turn, reveal a general unwillingness to accept the court’s rulings which, at present, means that 12 of the 34 prisoners who have won their habeas petitions are still imprisoned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So are many of these guys still rotting away at Gitmo really the "worst of the worst", or did they just have the insanely bad luck to be at the absolutely wrong place at the absolutely wrong time, and the US government is so embarrassed by the reality they have no case against them that it won't release them, no matter what the courts say?!?
