Ten years on, Kuwaiti inmates fear indefinite Guantanamo detention - CNN.com Al Kandari, his lawyers believe, is likely to be indefinitely detained. "Forty-eight unfortunate souls in Guantanamo Bay will never get a trial, will be presumed guilty and will die in Guantanamo without ever having stepped into a courtroom," Wingard said. Al Kandari has an appeal before the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, but David Cynamon, the lead attorney for the Kuwaiti detainees at Guantanamo Bay Prison, believes that the court is a "black hole" for the detainees. This is not how America works. I am deeply disheartened that the Obama administration has not followed through on its campaign promises to put these people on trial and close down this illegal detention center.
