As you may recall we are a democratic nation which adheres to principles of justice and humanity. You may recall that incoming President Barack Obama promised to end the brutality that had been created by the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld trio who established a prison in Guantanamo in our part of Cuba. Of course, the rest of Cuba is controlled by communists who hate the rule of law and social justice. I assume since Americans were on Cuban soil what else could they do but behave like Communists running another gulag. Mohamedou Ould Slahi has spent the past twelve years in that inferno we call a “prison.” Yes, in the 1990s he did work for jihad in Afghanistan when that land was controlled by the Soviet Union. Of course, so was the CIA which funded Muslim jihad against the enemy of America. He was captured and since that day has never been charged with any crime. He has never seen a piece of evidence that links him with al-Qaeda. He has endured torture and brutality at the hands of those in the employ of President Obama, you know, the dude who was taught constitutional law!
US District Court Judge Jamews Robertson ordered the release of Mr. Slahi but Attorney General Eric Holder simply requested to appeal that verdict which means more years of delay. Mr. Slahi has just released his diary of brutality and abuse. When did it become part of the American story to torture and abuse people? What has happened to our nation and its standards of Law?
