Sunday Open Thread
The Pentagon has sent out a notice that periodic review boards will be reinstated to evaluate 71 detainees and determine whether any any should be transferred.
46 captives currently held as “indefinite detainees,” a category created by an Obama Task force in 2010 of captives considered too dangerous to release but for whom there was no evidence that could justify a criminal trial;
25 other captives who in 2010 were listed as candidates for trials by military commissions or civilian courts.
The notice also seems to be timed for Wednesday's congressional hearing, "Closing Guantanamo: The National Security, Fiscal, and Human Rights Implications."
46 detainees are now being force-fed.
In other news, judges warn that the sequester may trigger a constitutional crisis.
