“Early on, the [Bush] administration labeled the Guantanamo detainees ‘the worst of the worst.’ Yet we now know that more than 250 have been released, that they included boys as young as 13 and that of those who remain, only 8 percent are even accused of being fighters for al-Qaeda. The majority are not accused of engaging in any hostile acts against the United States.”
