Guantanamo Inmate's Bid for Release Rejected as High Court Upholds Rulin
Source: Bloomberg

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from an accused al-Qaeda supporter who sought reinstatement of an order that he be released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The justices today left intact a federal appeals court ruling that said the government had enough evidence of al-Qaeda ties to continue holding Mohammed al-Adahi. A federal trial judge had ordered al-Adahi set free.

Al-Adahi, a Yemeni man arrested in Pakistan in 2001, says he was there after taking his sister to Afghanistan to meet her new husband. He testified that he doesnt believe in killing innocent people and never planned to fight Americans.

The government contends al-Adahi, who is in his late 40s, stayed at an al-Qaeda guest house, spent a week at a terrorist training camp and met with Osama bin Laden. The U.S. also says bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, hosted a wedding celebration for al-Adahis sister and brother-in-law.

1. How much evidence do you need for indefinite detention?
I thought you needed a conviction for that.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned.
