U.S. still holds detainee Pentagon wanted freed in 2004

U.S. still holds detainee Pentagon wanted freed in 2004 --Latif is the 38th Guantanamo captive to be found by a federal judge to be illegally detained at the remote U.S. Navy base. 17 Aug 2010 An emotionally ill detainee still being held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was first recommended for release by the Pentagon in 2004, according to a federal judge whose ruling ordering that the man be freed was made public this week. Despite the Pentagon's recommendation, it wasn't until 2007 that the Bush administration adopted the military assessment and put Adnan Abdul Latif, now about 34, on an approved transfer list... U.S. District Court Judge Henry Kennedy disclosed the timeline in a heavily censored 28-page ruling made public on Monday night that ordered Latif set free.
