Ready for the ‘Guantanamo Bay’ fall-out?

Former detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp are in line for UK government compensation totaling in the millions of pounds. This is one of the powerful stories that ruled the British newspapers for the 16 November 2010 news day. We decided here after hours of deliberation to run with this albeit long or short.
We without question were looking for ways to inform the government of the United States that this action is completely unacceptable to anyone who has been incarcerated at the “Bay Resort.”

This idea of suing has been in the minds of these former prisoners since before they were released. Make no mistake about it Mr. Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States of America it would be better for all if you just didn’t think about it.

The individuals released are using the same old and now very stenchy tall tale of how they were tortured beyond means. Again make no mistake – the American people have already weighed-in on this notion of torture. Furthermore, these members of whatever terrorist organization are now pitting one agency against the other as we have seen here in the U.S. only it reads like this:

Last month, the head of MI6, Sir John Sawers described torture as “illegal and abhorrent” and defended the service’s need for secrecy. Mr. Mohamed, 32, had alleged that his torturers in Morocco had asked questions supplied by MI5. Furthermore, they had claimed that UK intelligence agencies and three government departments were complicit in their torture and should have prevented it. The Court of Appeal ruled that the government was unable to rely on “secret evidence” to defend itself against the six cases.

Let’s face the reality that those who are in Guantanamo Bay custody are in fact, enemy combatants, and should be dealt with as such. (See further story here.)
