In light of the Bush administration’s insistence there be no judicial or semi-judicial oversight regarding incarerations at Guantanamo, an argument that relies mostly on the phrase “trust us,” I found this story interesting:

A prominent Taleban commander who was killed last week in southern Afghanistan had rejoined the militants after being released from the U.S prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Certainly, the military cannot be perfect in assessing and evaluating these prisoners. At the same time, given how hard it has been for people to get hearings at Gitmo, let alone be released, ironic seems an understatement.
