Guantanamo Bay detainees
New U.S. military regulations have banned lawyers for Guantanamo Bay inmates from bringing food to their clients – a move that critics and attorneys say severs a vital emotional link to the outside world.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., responded to Republican lawmakers threatening President Obama with impeachment, saying that is not the “right approach” to the U.S. release of five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl – a move which didn’t follow protocol for notification of Congress.
The U.S. government kept tabs on Bergdahl’s whereabouts with spies, drones and satellites, even as it pursued off-and-on negotiations to get him back over the five years of captivity that ended on Saturday.
