U.S. court won't review Guantanamo evidence ruling

Perhaps all the remaining detainees in Gitmo are terrorists, but its highly unlikely. Just give them the right to defend themselves. And stop with the "indefinite imprisonments".

The government constantly bitches about other countries who imprison people indefinitely, deny them access to courts, legal counsel, habeas corpus, specific charges, access to evidence against them. What's the difference? Just because they're called "enemy combatants" instead of "enemies of the state"? Just asking.
The U.S. government on Friday lost a court bid to prevent terrorism detainees gaining access to all readily available documents about them as they challenge their indefinite imprisonment at Guantanamo Bay.

At least some US courts are trying to bring back the rule of law.
