Guantanamo prison chief now says detainees should have been labeled POWs, taken to Afghanistan

Fox News |The Guantanamo Bay detention camp’s top, on-site military overseer is saying the prison’s inmates should be held overseas or in the U.S. – but not in the offshore legal limbo perpetuated by the infamous installation.

“I would argue that detainees should be kept in Afghanistan, or, if moving them is necessary, then into the United States,” William Lietzau, America’s Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Detainee Affairs, told The Mail on Sunday.

“If I could change one thing in Gitmo’s past, I would have called them prisoners of war from the beginning.”
