The lawyer spent six months trying to get into this room. He'd written letter after letter to the prisoner. He'd come to Guantánamo twice before to see him, and on each visit he'd been turned away without explanation. But today, the day before the arraignment, the prisoner has agreed to see him. Yet he does not talk and keeps looking away.
And this is our fault ... how? By the way, the dark side of the fight IS TERRORISM!
Guantánamo prisoner number 707 would be one Noor Uthman Muhammed. He is just a peach of a human being by all counts. Have you ever been in Guantánamo yourself, I have not, but the pictures are nice.
Have you ever been in prison here in this country, I have? And because of this, I have to ask you what in the HELL you know about torture and state communal living conditions.
When are you bleeding hearts going to comprehend that Guantánamo is a PRISON and NOT the local Holiday Inn? The detainees there are criminals and place NO value on their own lives as long as Allah is served, but then they have people like you to trumpet their causes and virtues for them.
Look at what 707 has stated (his denials) and then at what we know he did do, and then if you can convince me (with a straight face) that 911 was just a defensive gesture on the part of these new friends of yours, we can chat further.
