Remember when we detained Japanese Americans during WWII? We didn't learn from this mar on our record. Now we go and get people who wear certain watches and we put them in jail for years out of the eye of US laws and regulations and sily things like the Geneva Convention. While there, they are abused. All in the name of American freedom and democracy for all. This has been our nightmare since the Bush administration began stashing prisoners it did not want to account for in Guantánamo Bay: An ordinary man with a name something like a Taliban bigwig's is swept up in the dragnet and imprisoned without any hope of proving his innocence.
