Guantanamo Bay Attorneys
The Center for Constitutional Rights has coordinated efforts by American lawyers to handle the habeas corpus, and other legal appeals, of several hundred of the Guantanamo detainees.
Only American lawyers have been allowed to visit detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba. They have to go through security screening first. And they must agree that they can't speak from the notes they took during their meetings with their clients until they have been cleared for release.

Shedding white rings of tumult, building high
