Gitmo's detainees

History will not be kind to what America is doing to its many prisoners in Gitmo (and elsewhere). The point of due process is to imprison the guilty and let the innocent go, but the set of rules set up in Gitmo are a mockery of traditional American rule of law. One cannot pretend that errors will not be made in the rounding up of terrorists and a process HAS to be in place to correct them. I am very worried because of the lack of outrage by the public at this administration's repeated bending of the rules (at best) and Congress' complete deference and lack of oversight.
