Over the weekend the Department of Defense released transcripts and documents from the 2006 Administrative Review Boards (ARBs). These are the kangaroom reviews of current detainees to determine if the detainee can be released or transferred. I have not had a chance to go thru the documents in any great detail... I did notice that the few detainees I checked who were recently transferred were still not listed as individuals determined to be transferable... again showing the arbitrariness and dishonesty of the charade.
I did find the transcript of Mr. Al-Ghizzawi's ARB. Seems they have added a new charge against him... that he had a casio watch. It is hard to know whether to laugh or cry as you read the transcript. Poor Mr. Al-Ghizzawi, looking for justice in all the wrong places.
I will give a more detailed look at his and other detainees hearings in the coming weeks.
