Karen Greenberg asks what's going on with Bagram:

We do know that a planned expansion of the facility is under way and will -- if President Obama chooses to continue the Bush project there -- enable up to 1,100 prisoners to be held (a step that will grimly complement the "surge" in American troops now under way in Afghanistan). There are no figures available on how long most of Bagram's prisoners have been held -- although some, it seems, have been imprisoned without charges or recourse for years -- or how legal processes are being applied there, if at all.
