This is a great find, and thanks for the ping. What was this multi nation pro $oddomite doing in Iraq with $118,000?:

"Shaltout, a native Egyptian, said he is a Canadian citizen and permanent U.S. resident but said he has not been allowed to return to the United States because officials confiscated his green card. He is living in Saudi Arabia. He is seeking $350,000 from the government through the U.S. Army Claims Service for "torture and other personal injuries" while at Camp Bucca.

Shaltout said he is an aerospace engineer and an exporter for an American company that distributes global positioning equipment. He said he is at least able to afford psychological treatment as compared to other prisoners freed from camps in Iraq.

"Their lives will be destroyed," he said.

Attorney Thomas Nelson of Portland, Ore., filed the claim. It said Shaltout entered Iraq in January 2003 as a member of a peace organization called Rights and Freedom International. The organization tried to convince Iraqi leaders to step down to avoid war with the United States, the claim said.

Shaltout described himself as a "peacemaker" and said Camp Bucca soldiers wanted him to admit to being Saddam Hussein's "right hand man," but he refused to confess during daily interrogations.

"They wanted confessions," he said. "A lot of people didn't have anything to confess."

According to the claim:

Shaltout was outside his hotel room in Baghdad on April 9, 2003, when Marines detained him. He was placed in an armored personnel carrier and prevented from returning to his hotel room to retrieve $118,700 in hidden cash and other items.

That's a good question, Gramps.
Also, how did Shaltout hook up with
Thomas Nelson, Mayfield's friend and
his local media handler?
