U.S. Lets Gitmo Terrorist Publish Letter About Suffering, Abuse at Prison
Judicial Watch ^ | March 18, 2014

The Obama administration has allowed a fighter in Osama bin Laden’s 55th Arab Brigade to publish a sob letter in an international media outlet describing the “humiliating and brutal treatments” he suffers at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay Cuba.

Earlier in the year the administration let the mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), dispatch propaganda from his Guantanamo jail cell, undoubtedly aiding and abetting more terrorism. That was disgraceful enough; allowing the Al Qaeda operative, an enemy combatant who’s admitted being the architect of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, to issue a manifesto from his military prison cell. Besides boasting of waging jihad against the U.S., KSM’s Pentagon file confirms he’s a senior Al Qaeda recruiter, financier and operational planner for the group’s global terrorist network.

This month another Islamic jihadist, Moath al-Alwi, was allowed to publish his propaganda from a Gitmo prison cell. Al-Alwi is a Yemeni national who served as Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard, according to his Pentagon file. He is a top Al Qaeda operative and a “veteran jihadist and fighter in UBL’s 55th Arab Brigade who participated in hostilities against the U.S. and Coalition forced on the front lines and in UBL’s Tora Bora mountain complex,” the Department of Defense (DOD) assessment says. The file also includes details of al-Alwi’s elite, hand-to-hand combat training and lengthy stays at Al Qaeda guest houses in various locations, including Kandahar.

Not surprisingly, these extensive terrorist credentials and training aren’t mentioned in al-Alwi’s lengthy letter, which was published internationally by the Arab news conglomerate Al Jazeera. The headline reads: “A letter from Guantanamo: Nobody can truly understand how we suffer.” The piece only describes Al-Alwi as a Yemeni national who has been in U.S. custody since 2002. It also says that he was “one of the very first prisoners moved to Guantanamo, where the U.S. military assigned him the Internment Serial Number 028.”

Whip out the tissue box for the letter’s introduction, which reveals that Al-Alwi and his fellow terrorists are “trapped behind the walls of Guantanamo.” Al-Alwi says he wrote the letter “between bouts of violent vomiting” and sharp stomach pains caused by a morning force-feeding session. He describes being force fed and trashes the colonel in charge of the military detention facility for confiscating prisoners’ legal papers and Qurans and for instituting “humiliating groin searches.” Al-Alwi also whines about having a special mattress and pillows to alleviate back pain, an electric razor and a bar of soap confiscated over his hunger strike.

He claims guards at the military compound make fun of him and laugh loudly and that sometimes they lay him on his stomach and press forcefully on his back. “Aside from those imprisoned with me, nobody can truly understand how we suffer,” Al-Alwi writes. “The Colonel will not allow media into Guantanamo Bay, claiming he is protecting our privacy. No man here wants privacy from the media. The Colonel fears that if the media comes in and meets with the prisoners, all of this daily brutality will be exposed. Hopefully this letter serves that end.”

The Al Qaeda operative stresses to the world that he is an unarmed captive and asks the American people where is the freedom the U.S. touts? “Do you condone what your government is doing to us? I know that governments do not always represent the voices of their people, and I pray that the American people do not want this, and more, that they will do something to stop it.” This isn’t mentioned in the letter, but it’s safe to bet the American people didn’t want Islamic jihadists to brutally murder thousands of innocent fellow citizens in 2001.

There's either not one person in this administration including the boss with a brain in their head or they're traitors, I'll go with the latter.

Remember; Obama and his minions allow anything (including lies and false accusations) to give a black eye to America. It is that simple.

I had heard that they are ‘forced’ to take a shower at least once a week and they keep complaining the paper comes in a roll, is soft and hard to write on.
When told what it was for they figured the Guards were ‘torturing’ them again and they said ‘Stoopid infidel. What does he think your hand is for’.

Yep, that’s what happens when we have to deal with ignorant people who live like their ancestors did 8 centuries ago.
