Gitmo detainees subject to detention even if acquitted: Pentagon

Some detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will likely never be released because of the danger they pose, and those tried and acquitted will still be subject to continued detention as enemy combatants, a Pentagon spokesman said Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Ahem).

If these guys are acquitted, this means that they have been found innocent of any crime

Since when, in the history of American law and justice, have we continued to hold people who have been acquitted??

This boggles the mind, and makes you wonder what kinds of judicial "stretches" this government, right now, is willing to take against American citizens whose only "crime" is disagreeing with its positions.

Please don't think that just because this is happening at Gitmo, that it couldn't happen here.
