21 Year Old Guantanamo Detainee Released After 7 Years

21 Year Old Guantanamo Detainee Released After 7 Years


That’s right. We locked him up when he was 14 years old.

End result?

No evidence could be found that he was an enemy combatant.

More from BBC:

After Mr Gharani was arrested at a mosque, his lawyer said he was accused by the US of being a member of al-Qaeda in 1998, when he would have been only 11.

The US authorities had also alleged that Mr Gharani stayed at an al-Qaeda-affiliated guest house in Afghanistan, fought in the battle of Tora Bora following the US-led invasion, and served as a courier for senior al-Qaeda operatives.

Anybody want to bet we don’t pay this guy anything for the time we stole from him? Or that you won’t hear about this in the mainstream media?

Shameful stuff.

    Either we release him and pay him nothing (just send him where we took him prisoner) or keep him in trial for another 7 years. I feel for this guy. I feel sad to have lived without HBO for 9 years. Spending an entire adolescence in captivity… wow.
