  1. It is not really news that many of the "dangerous terrorists" held in Guantanamo were nothing but little scapegoats sold on the slave market by warlords who had been a bit shortened in drugs income by the previous Taliban government's crush down on poppy growing. Their "findings" were, of course, needed as a marketing description for their goods, and why THESE prisoners were such valuable items (priced at USD20,000 or so)

  2. U.S. Government trips on a 12 year old and after 7 years can't get a conviction.

    F**king morons – they are illegally occupying his country.

    Best wishes to Master Jawad.
