Six years

Court rules in favor of Chinese Muslim held at Gitmo

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A federal appeals court ruled Monday that a Chinese Muslim held by the U.S. military was improperly labeled an "enemy combatant" by the Pentagon.

The decision throws into serious doubt the underlying reasons for keeping Hazaifa Parhat in custody for more than six years.

Six years.

Six years, and FINALLY this poor bastard is allowed to say, "You made a mistake - I'm not a terrorist."

He wasn't ALLOWED to do that before. Not in George Bush's America. In Bush's America, an accused man is not allowed to defend himself.

And, according to the court, he's NOT a terrorist. They fucked up. Like they have done again and again and again. They fucked up, and ruined an innocent man's life.

Who is going to give this man six years of his life back?

And why the HELL are we expected the trust the Bush Administration to make these decisions accurately when they have been WRONG about EVERYTHING ELSE?
