Guantánamo Bay files: Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time
Almost half of 212 Afghan prisoners either innocent or forced to fight for Taliban, while foreigners were simply rounded up

The prison files reveal that they were listed as "enemy combatants" on arrival , but turned out to be entirely innocent.
