Guantanamo (yet) again

"US asks to rewrite detainee evidence"

"The government has stood behind the evidence for years. Military review boards relied on it to justify holding hundreds of prisoners indefinitely without charge. Justice Department attorneys said it was thoroughly and fairly reviewed.

Now that federal judges are about to review the evidence, however, the government says it needs to make changes."

No, not to redact potentially sensitive information, but to make the case more convincing than it was going to be if reviewed by military tribunals. Is anyone surprised?
