A military official said the Pentagon disagreed with the ruling, saying it had always been “implied” that Mr. Khadr was an unlawful combatant. The official said the Pentagon planned to appeal Colonel Brownback’s ruling. “This is just a semantic decision, is the way we are viewing it,” the official said.

From the New York Times today.
Apparently the US government seeks to override its own legal experts when checked by law or the interpretation of law.

On the basis that these laws are just a matter of semantics and guilt was 'implied'.
So never mind the actual meanings of words in laws, we 'kinda always knew they were guilty as this had been implied by the act of accusation'.

God bless America?
God help America!
