UN invited to inspect Guantanamo...sort of

This story describes how the US has 'nothing to hide' and has invited UN officials to visit Guantanamo Bay prison. Gee - nothing to hide, so why this?
Three human rights monitors will be allowed to observe the facilities and question military officials but will not have access to detainees.
Nothing to hide, well, except the prisoners themselves.
The facts are that there is no domestic or international law that permits the prisoners to be held in the first place and that allegations of mistreatment are rampant - I guess that's all just gossip.

Sounds like George Orwell's Newspeak to me. "Nothing to Hide" means "Something to Hide".
Nothing to hide... but that prisoner, and that one, and, well, that one.... (Never mind)
