 Pursuant to D.C. Circuit Rule 29(d), undersigned counsel for
amicus curiae
 certifies that a separate brief is necessary. CAC is a think tank, public interest lawfirm, and action center dedicated to fulfilling the progressive promise of our Con-stitution’s text and history. CAC works in our courts, through our government,and with legal scholars to improve understanding of the Constitution and to pre-serve the rights and freedoms it guarantees. Thus, CAC is particularly well-suitedto discuss the constitutional issue of the application of the Ex Post Facto Clause tothe detainees at Guantanamo and to provide the Court with background on the his-torical importance of that Clause at the Framing.
