Judge Orders Gitmo Detainee Released, Citing Lack of Evidence -- News from Antiwar.com
In a “secret ruling” by Federal Judge Henry Kennedy which was issued in July but released to the public today, the judge ordered Adnan Farhan Abd Al Latif released after ruling that not only did the government have no evidence of wrongdoing by Latif, but that he provided “a plausible alternative story to explain his travel.”
Latif was reportedly abused for years while in custody at Guantanamo
Bay, and his judge had to file an “emergency motion” to require that
prison officials provide him with a mattress and blanket. A second
motion was then made to try to get him a pillow, but this was denied.
Nine years, folks. Nine years. We tortured him with no evidence.
