Federal Appeals Court Bars Bagram Detainees From Civilian Trials

Detainees at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan cannot use U.S. courts to challenge their imprisonment the way detainees in Guantanamo Bay have, a federal appeals court ruled Friday.

The United States is holding the detainees at the military prison on Afghan territory through a cooperative arrangement with Afghanistan, three appeals court judges said in a unanimous decision turning aside the request of a Tunisian and two Yemeni prisoners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if these men will receive a trial at all, either via US Military tribunal, or Afghani military tribunal, or if the ultimate outcome will be having them rot in indefinite detention.
