Guantanamo lawyers demand access

Link to story. Very nice approach to spreading democracy and freedom. First capture hundreds of alleged terrorists, then ship them to the US toenail on Cuba ... and do whatever you want with them - for years. Hey, they're not under US laws - not on American soil. Hey, they're not covered by the Geneva Conventions - not really prisoners of war. Amnesty International calls it (and the other surrogate Gitmos around the world) "the Gulag of our time". Sure makes one feel all keen about democracy and freedom, doesn't it? Or does it explain why American tourists are sewing Canadian flags on their gear?
