I have a problem though, just with the last line:
Meanwhile, Vijay Padmanabhan, a former state department lawyer, said the creation of the Guantánamo Bay detention camp was "one of the worst over-reactions of the Bush administration".
Does he have ANY idea what middle eastern terrorists do to their POWs? Torture them, chop off their heads, desecrate the bodies, its not pretty.
The Bush government wasn't just being paranoid and throwing random joe's in gitmo, these are very bad people.
