Six More Enemy Combatants At Gimo, Aren't.

Six men who have been held at Guantanamo Bay for years have been called innocent by the leader of their country, Bosnia, which has asked for their return in vain.

Today, more than four years later, the six remain locked up at Guantanamo, even though the original allegations about the embassy attack have been discredited and dropped, records show. . . . In 2004, Bosnian prosecutors and police formally exonerated the six men after a lengthy criminal investigation. Last year, the Bosnian prime minister asked the Bush administration to release them, calling the case a miscarriage of justice.

This is why holding people without charges or trials is unacceptable.
