The Wall Street Journal writes:
The Obama administration said Tuesday it may continue to imprison non-U.S. citizens indefinitely even if they have been acquitted of terrorism charges by a U.S. military commission.
Many writers have said the real reason that the government wishes to indefinitely detain certain prisoners is that they have suffered horrible, disfiguring torture, which the U.S. is trying to hide.
We must assume this is true unless the government lets independent doctors from the Red Cross examine all of the prisoners and publicly release their findings.
