Guantanamo - justice for some

Regular readers may recall that while I was in Washington DC in January, I blogged several items about the senior Pentagon official Charles Stimson who criticised, and suggested a corporate boycott of US law firms that provided assistance to terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo. Firm names had been released in response to a Freedom of Information application. Stimson also claimed that Guantanamo Bay was the most 'open location' in the world.

I didn't pick up until this week that Stimson has subsequently resigned. As the Pentagon spokesman nicely put it, he wasn't asked to leave by Defense Secretary Robert Gates, but resigned because he had "hampered his ability to be effective in this position".
