Judge rules U.S. detention of Kuwaiti at Guantanamo is legal

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Ketelly's ruling that Fawzi al Odah was in fact an al Qaida foot soldier when he was captured in Afghanistan in December 2001 and therefore can be held legally as an enemy combatant is a rare victory for the government in habeas hearings. So far, judges have ordered the release 29 Guantanamo prisoners, while endorsing the continued detention of only seven.
