Your reading comprehension is slipping...
Your own quote states:
... where it was determined that they are no longer enemy combatants.
That's a BIG difference.

My reading comprehension is just fine.

Perhaps it is your understand of logic that needs a tune-up.

For four years these people were detained, because they were enemy combatants. No other charges were filed against them, they were held, imprisoned because a government official decided they were, in fact, enemy combatants.

Suddenly one day they wake up, having changed nothing at all about themselves and find they they are "no longer" enemy combatants.

And you're OK with that.

Frightening, really, to think that we fought a revolution against King George to avoid this precise scenario, and here were are with King George repeating this precise scenario, and there are people like you saying "Yeah, that's a good idea."
