More Brits at Guantanamo may be released

The Independent reports that a "senior British official" is saying that four more British prisoners at Guantanamo may be released after a military review.
The official said that the British prisoners could be released and, presumably, allowed home without charge.

Just a few months ago the Bush administration insisted that the four Britons were "too dangerous" to be released.

"It is a complete scam," said Clive Stafford Smith, a lawyer who has filed suits on behalf of the British prisoners, along with three British residents also being held. "It is a total mockery and designed to give them some cover when they eventually release these people."

Jeffrey Fogel, legal director of the Centre for Constitutional Rights, told CNN: "The Supreme Court ruling requires access to legal representation. This process is an elaborate window-dressing and an attempt to subvert that ruling and the rule of law."
