The first successful appeal of a Guantanamo Bay detainee’s designation as an enemy combatant was decided on Tuesday. A federal appeals court in Washington overturned the Bush administration’s previous decision. The court ordered the government to release , transfer or offer Huzaifa Parhat, an ethnic Chinese Uighur, a new hearing. Michael Ratner says this decision coupled with last week’s Supreme Court ruling, that prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay can take their cases to the American courts, signals “the death knell for Guantanamo Bay”.
