Brit freed from Guantanamo cashes in on Xbox

A BRIT who spent two years in Guantanamo Bay as a terror suspect is cashing in with a computer game based on the US detention camp.

Moazzam Begg, 41, will appear as himself in the Xbox 360 game, which could rake in £3million.

Rendition: Guantanamo, due to go on sale in October, lets players control a detainee trying to shoot his way out.

Begg, of Sparkhill, Birmingham, is shown in the game as head of an organisation helping the suspect to escape.

Human rights activist Begg was thrown into the camp on Cuba in 2003 after the CIA held him in Pakistan. He claims he was tortured before being freed without charge in 2005.

Begg said any money he is paid will go to a charity fighting for detainees’ rights.

He said: “The software firm approached me with the idea for a Guantanamo game. I’m involved to make sure it is as true to life as possible.”

Curiously enough this 9th century knuckledragging pig fornicator will,at every turn,try to preserve his life in this game (rather than willingly meet his virgins) just as he's done in real life.

If this involves the player killing U.S. troops, then I will have nothing but contempt for everyone associated with this game.

If that’s the case, I will never again do business with anyone who sells this game.

Oh boy! Now we get to see goats and their conjugal visits!
