"No one leaves Guantanamo innocent"

Last week, Andrew Sullivan wrote up the case of Fouad al-Rabiah, a man held for years at Gitmo and tortured into such implausible confessions that his own torturers didn't believe him. Sully links this excellent Andy Worthington writeup and the district court opinion directing that al-Rabiah's habeas petition be granted. Really worth reading the links on this one, folks -- if I provided quotes, I'd be here all day.

Perhaps the most appalling thing here is that, given such an absurd case, Obama's DOJ nonetheless fought to keep this man in custody.
