Dig this from one of the lawyers who’s actually trying to help the Guantanamo prisoners in the face of BushCo discooperation with them at every turn. Note the last paragraph where it is clear that these men were held without any cause whatsoever for a long, long time. BushCo needs desperately to be brought before the International Court of Justice.

A note on the two Sudanese men: They are now safe with their families. They arrived at Khartoum airport in the early hours of today and were handed over to the Sudanese intelligence authorities. As they got down from the military plane they were given a set of Sudanese clothes to wear instead of the white Gitmo robe. They were then taken to hospital for medical examination and taken afterwards directly to their homes were they were reunited with their families around 5am. They were excellently treated by the intelligence officers who received them at the airport. They were told that they were not wanted any more by the intelligence and were asked to get in touch with those officers should they need any help.
