Algerian seized with Abu Zubaydah loses habeas case

A federal judge has upheld as lawful the indefinite detention of an Algerian accused of being an al Qaeda bomb maker, raising the tally of U.S. government victories in Guantanamo habeas corpus lawsuits to eight. The government has lost in 30 other cases. Sufiyan Barhoumi, 36, was arrested in a Pakistan safe house along with Abu Zubaydah, the first CIA secret detainee to undergo waterboarding.
