The WSJ’s James Taranto (writing for the Australian) on Gitmo detainees:
The US is under no obligation to give any of these men a trial and not all of the detainees here are believed to have committed war crimes. America has the authority under international law – and the duty to its own citizens – to hold those who remain dangerous for the duration. It could defer war crimes trials until the war is over, as the Allies did in World War II.
Some incentive there for Guantanamites to wish this conflict would end sooner rather than later. Might’ve been easier for them if they hadn’t joined it in the first place.
