There is a difference between...
...and "knew they were innocent".taken into custody "without regard for whether they were truly enemy combatants, or in fact whether many of them were enemies at all."
OP is being intentionally deceptive...again.
I can be an Enemy combatant and never see the enemy, if I'm Shooting an artillery piece from ten miles away.His declaration, filed in the spring of 2010 in a D.C. federal court, asserted that "of the initial 742 detainees that had arrived at Guantánamo, the majority of them had never seen a U.S. soldier in the process of their initial detention and their captivity had not been subjected to any meaningful review."

Wow distractions galore in here. So you are telling us that cheney and Bush held people they knew were innocent in a military prison with no oversight or any hope of ever being released? But what about obama? Certainly that is all Ok as long as Obama is mentioned. We never have to confron ther truth about right wing fanaticism that has desteroyed the lives of many people and shredded the US constitution as long as we say the magic word Obama. Obama makes any abuse by the right simply disappear in their minds no matter how overwhelmingly guilty they are. Screw Oxyclean, obama gets out decades old blood stains.
Oh, and for all the people whining about obama, at least he attempted to try a couple of these guys in a real court. yeah, he went back on it, but at least he made an effort busgh and cheney never planned on doing. Sort of like they never planned on capturing their boogeyman Osama, and like they never planned on getting us out of the Iraq and afganistan war, and like they never planned on how to pay for any of this, but that is all cool because of OBAMA!
