So: a judge (a) told the feds to release from Gitmo five people who did nothing wrong and — in a move I have never seen before — (b) told the government not to appeal because seven years without trial is enough. WaPo on same:
Leon said the government did not provide enough credible and reliable evidence during a series of closed hearings to justify the detentions of the five Algerians… He said the allegations were provided by a single source in an intelligence document. The government did not provide enough information about the source to determine whether he or she was credible or reliable, Leon ruled.
Which of course means that they are terrorists who must be stopped, according to (yeah) the National Review:
The government is considering its appellate options. Meanwhile, one can only hope that either Algeria or some other country is willing to take these guys. Otherwise, we are in the same fix presented by the Uighur case (which will be argued on appeal next week): facing the prospect of jihadists being released into the United States.
Jesus H. Christ: the guy with the robe said that there was no evidence of these guys being “jihadists.” Listen. You might learn something.
