Britain to Pay Millions to Gitmo Detainees

Does this count as hush money? The British government is going to pay millions of dollars to seven Guantanamo Bay detainees who accuse it of cooperating with the United States in their detentions. The move comes as part of an effort to keep out of court thousands of documents detailing its complicity. While the exact amount of the payments to the prisoners will not be disclosed, at least one is believed to be receiving at least $1.5 million.
