Sweden, Spain, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Rumania, Poland, the Baltic states and Morocco.Everyone is staying shtum and claiming ignorance, for instance

I'm guessing it'll come out fairly soon. My pick, probably wrong, is a bunch of countries quietly removing the dodgiest characters that have got in over the years that they'd now like to be shot of.

Foreign participants engaged in an armed conflict do not, and never have, fallen under the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts. Dealing with such combatants, or suspected combatants, is a purely military matter, and the detentions associated with the conflict are not punitive, therefore, habeas corpus does not apply.Although I doubt that the NYT is actually interested in proper legal proceedings as much as getting to use Latin phrases in print. Maybe they should hire Ally McBeal to read their copy to make sure they get the legals right before they write.
