Prison authorities admit they “unintentionally” listened in on attorney/client meetings at Guantanamo Bay

Just 20 years ago most people would have laughed if you told them that the United States would soon hold people in prison for decades without warrant, without charge, and without trial.

Now there have been “terrorist” suspects in Guantanamo Bay–with the U.S. flag flying above them–for 15 years without charge (and mostly without evidence).

Several have committed suicide.

The only reason they have been allowed to speak with lawyers at all is because of habeas corpus petitions, filed by civil liberties lawyers.

Now it is reported that the meetings between Guantanamo inmates and their lawyers have all been either recorded or monitored by prison and/or military authorities.

“Inadvertently,” of course. See here.
