Recently Released Gitmo Detainee Talks to ABC News

Held Seven Years, Former Aid Worker Tells ABC News He Was Tortured

This report is up at ABC News site and probably will be telecast tonight.

For 7½ years, Lakhdar Boumediene was known simply by a number: “10005.”

These were the digits assigned to him when he arrived at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, swept up in a post-Sept. 11 dragnet and accused of plotting to blow up the U.S. and British Embassies in Sarajevo.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Boumediene said the interrogators at Gitmo never once asked him about this alleged plot, which he denied playing any part it……Rest found here

“I cried, just cried. Because I don’t know my daughters,” he said. “The younger, when I moved from Bosnia to Gitmo, she had 18 months, only 18 months. Now 9 years. Now she’s big. Between 18 months, baby and 9 years, she walking, she’s talking, she play, she’s joking. It’s a big difference.”

And one doesn’t need to wonder why some that have been released are reported to be, not back into, fighting American Troops in our occupations!!


  1. Tomorrow, will people be talking about this?

    Next week, will Americans have forgotten that we have tortured innocents in the name of Democracy?

    Will ABC follow up on the other innocent detainees?

    Will George W. Bush and Dick Cheney ever be held accountable for all the lies, all the deaths, or for subverting the Constitution they swore to uphold?

    I am living in a state of disbelief.
