On Tuesday, the lawyer of Binyam Mohamed criticised the US government after all terror charges were dropped against his client.

"Far from being a victory for Mr Mohamed in his long-running struggle for justice, this is more of the same farce that is Guantanamo," Stafford Smith said.

"The military has informed us that they plan to charge him again within a month" after the US presidential election, Mr Smith said.

Mr Mohamed, 30, is the last UK resident held at Guantanamo Bay.
At least both McCain and Obama agree on closing Guantanamo.

The Bush administration sees the Guantanamo Bay centre as a vital tool in the "war on terror".

But critics say it is a legal black hole in which suspects have been abused and face either military tribunals or open-ended imprisonment.
Black Hole Indeed.

I wish Due process weren't so very very broken...But am very happy they have been released.
