倫斯斐遭伊蘭橋美國公民卡爾 (Cyrus Kar)的起訴

卡爾.自伊蘭移民到美國.去伊拉克拍與戰爭無關之電影.因基乘車司機跟反抗著合作而被視為反抗著.美軍把他送到古巴關達那摩灣美軍基地. 被關55天,其中被關單獨監禁53天.

Cyrus Kar, American-veteran and Iranian American, suing Rumsfeld for wrongful imprisonment and the violation of his Constitutional rights.

The American Civil Liberties Union of California filed the federal lawsuit in July on behalf of Cyrus Kar, 45, of Los Angeles. It alleges the filmmaker's detention violated his civil rights, the Geneva Convention and the law of nations. Defendants include Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and other military officials.

In response to the lawsuit, U.S. attorneys cautioned the court to carefully consider getting entangled in military operations overseas and said Kar cannot challenge the government's policies without "a realistic threat that he will again be subject to detention in Iraq by the United States military officers."
