On Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer:
BLITZER: Because these individuals have not been charged formally with anything. They've been held without charge. And efforts to really get to the bottom of it have been stymied.
SPECTER: I went to Guantanamo last August, and I went down there with the expectation of having a hearing and of bringing people in and finding out exactly what went on. And when I got there, I was stonewalled. I couldn't have a hearing.
And what has happened, through a series of events, we have waited for the courts to act. The courts came down, Supreme Court with three decisions in June of 2004. And now we're waiting for the court to come down with another decision. But in the interim, they're just out there in limbo, and that creates a very difficult situation.
