Obama administration uses word 'recidivism' to discuss released detainees

The Obama Administration this week is continuing to use the word "recidivism" to discuss whether released Guantanamo detainees commit crimes or not.

The problem is that we're talking about people who were never convicted of a crime. In fact, in many cases, these are people who we know quite clearly were innocent civilians picked up off the street.

Justin Elliott has a good short write-up on the issue today.
