Mr. Stimson regrets, but claim about openness at Guantanamo remains

Summer blog

Charles Stimson the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Detainee Affairs, in a letter to to-day's Washington Post has apologised to lawyers representing detainees at Guantanamo, but his letter makes no retraction of his claim that Guantanamo is "the most open location in the world".

Lawyers for detainees however, aren't off the hook yet: Attorney General Gonzales told Associated Press yesterday that their numerous challenges have delayed trials for their clients. This wasn't intended "as criticism of defense attorneys doing their jobs" but was was a statement of reality.
