Dark Revelations in the Bagram Prisoner List
The Pentagon finally released a list of the names of the 645 prisoners who were held on September 22, 2009 at Afghanistan US prison.
The first three names, it should be noted, refer to prisoners released from Guantánamo, who were subsequently recaptured, but in at least one of these cases - that of Hafizullah Shabaz Khiel - there are serious concerns that the US authorities have seized an innocent man for a second time.
Differences between Gitmo and Bagram:
Guantánamo, where the prisoners have had access to attorneys since 2004, and Bagram, where no civilian lawyer has set foot, and the reach of the courts has not yet been established, and is fiercely disputed.
