Guantanamo Prisoner Diary: ‘We’re Gonna Teach You About Great American Sex’ (barf)
Der Spiegel ^ | January 20, 2015 – 02:55 PM | Britta Sandberg

Mauritanian national Mohamedou Ould Slahi has been held at Guantanamo for 12 years now without trial and despite a dearth of evidence. A diary he kept of his torture is now being published around the world. […]

He was accused of having been acquainted with the perpetrators of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and of having provided them with support and sending them to Afghanistan to receive training. He has also been accused of involvement in the Millennium Plot, the foiled terrorist attack targeting the Los Angeles International Airport. At least that’s the claim made by Ahmed Ressam, the man arrested in late 1999 at the US-Canadian border with 60 kilograms of explosives in the trunk of his car.

More than a decade later, though, these allegations have essentially collapsed. Sufficient evidence has never turned up, proper charges haven’t been filed and Slahi, now 44, has never been put on trial. …

Oh sure. Tortured but permitted to maintain a running dairy all about it - and then take and publish it? Anyone buying that story is dumber than a pasture patty

I sincerely doubt that there is a form of human sin, villainy and treachery that is not represented in that photo.

Too bad the guy had a camera instead of a flame-thrower.

You’re right, it’s in early June.
I’m not sure about this time.
LOVED meeting you.

We are going to try to break out a bigger chunk of time this time.

We didn’t have enough conversation with everyone.

It was OK, but there was a lot more to say and a few people we barely met.

Hope you can make it.

(Mrs. Shibumi hadn’t fired a weapon since getting out of the Army. I’m not supposed to say how long ago that was for her. Anyway, now she’s constantly bugging me to take her shooting. Another Bitter Clinger is born!)

Sure... the US is going to endure holding a non-starter in the controversial Gitmo. He’s there for a reason, and it’s not about his sexual fantasies... I suppose.

They shouldn’t have been detained at GTMO, they should have been waterboarded for information, then executed. Thanks Olog-hai.

From article: “Slahi had, in fact, promoted jihad in the early 1990s in small German mosques and travelled himself to a training camp in Afghanistan in 1991. He had wanted to help the Mujahedeen in their fight against the Soviets, he later said.”

There were no Soviet troops in Afghanistan in 1991. Soviet withdrawal began in 1987 and the last Soviet troops left on February 15, 1989.

No, I haven’t.
In fact, I’ve never heard of that movie until right now.

There was no “dearth of evidence”... the lawyers just griped about how it was obtained.
And to the left “sufficient evidence” means some greater amountthan whatever the prosecution has, no matter how much the prosecution has.
