Imagine that you have been placed in the medium security facility at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay. However one wishes to define the terms “enemy combatant” or “terrorist” and an objective outside observer would know that you are not one. Indeed, you have never committed a crime in your life high enough to warrant being detained in Guantanamo Bay.
Now assume that any amenities or privleges offered to you under the Geneva Convention do not apply to you. Also assume that due process afforded under the US legal system also does not apply to you. You cannot contact a lawyer. You cannot contact your family. You will not see charges brought against you. You will be detained indefinitely in Guantanamo Bay, subject to whatever rules your captors determine are necessary.
By what means would you prove your innocence? What steps would you take to best insure your release from captivity?
