You are a pompus, ignorant, fool who is so arrogant you don'y realize how
truly ignorant you are.

And now, the facts:
Every single detainee currently being held at Guantanamo Bay has received a
hearing before a military tribunal. Every one. As a result of those
hearings, more than three dozen Gitmo detainees have been released. The
hearings, called "Combatant Status Review Tribunals," are held before a
board of officers, and permit the detainees to contest the facts on which
their classification as "enemy combatants" is based.

Gitmo-bashers attack the Bush administration's failure to abide by the
Geneva Conventions. But as legal analysts Lee Casey and Darin Bartram told
me, "the status hearings are, in fact, fully comparable to the 'Article V'
hearings required by the Geneva Conventions, in situations where those
treaties apply, and are also fully consistent with the Supreme Court's 2004
decision in the Hamdi v. Rumsfeld case."
