That’s right. We locked him up when he was 14 years old.
No evidence could be found that he was an enemy combatant.
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?
