Judge Orders Guantanamo Detainee Released

So, why exactly am I supposed to have sympathy for this guy?

Is it that he trained for jihad? Hung out in a cave with Osama bin Laden? Or that he was fighting U.S. soldiers on the battlefield?

Sure, release him. But not here; send his sorry ass back to Yemen where they still have a justice system which punishes the scum of the earth. I would enjoy seeing how the Islamist Extremists handle a traitorous "brother".

Thanks for the tips on terrorists, pal, but that's no reason to let you loose in America.

But, I guess none of this matters since Attorney General Eric Holder already said we would release some detainees back into the U.S, the Obama Administration has officially abandoned the terms "war on terror" and "enemy combatant" so screw it! Let these American-hating pieces of crap loose!

Detroit, Oakland or Camden, NJ would be my top choices!

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the United States to release a prisoner from the Guantanamo detention center who said he fears for his life after informing against senior al-Qaida leaders.

U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle issued a one-page judgment ordering the release of Yasin Muhammed Basardh, a 33-year-old from Yemen. The judge didn't say in the ruling why Basardh should be let go, but she said it was explained during a closed hearing in her courtroom earlier in the day.

Basardh has begged U.S. officials not to send him back to Yemen or any other Muslim country.

"I am cooperative to the point where my cooperation with everyone has led to many people threatening my life," he said at a 2005 military hearing.

"Osama bin Laden's people know about me. They will not hesitate to kill me or anyone in my family. If they cannot kill me, they will kill at least one person from my family to get their revenge," Basardh said. At the time, he said he wanted to join the U.S. Army.

According to charges filed by the military in 2004, Basardh is a member of the Taliban who trained at a terror camp in Afghanistan that Osama bin Laden visited. The government says Basardh fought against the U.S. or its coalition partners, and fled to the Tora Bora region in November 2001, where he stayed in a cave with bin Laden.

He later left Tora Bora for Pakistan and was captured by the Pakistani military, according to the government.

Basardh told U.S. officials that before going to Afghanistan he spent time in Saudi Arabian jails for dealing drugs. He said other drug dealers who had repented persuaded him to train for jihad in Afghanistan.
