"Road to Gitmo" Heartthrobs Will Lead Anniversary Protests
**It’s Gitmo Anniversary time!**
After 9-11, three young Muslim men traveled to Pakistan for a wedding and one for a cheap Microsoft class(?). The three all disappeared soon after that and then just happenned to show up in Afghanistan after 9-11! Imagine their pain when their next stop was Gitmo!
Soon after their release the three became anti-war/Anti-US/Anti-Bush/Anti-Blair heartthrobs. They will lead the Gitmo anniversary protests in the coming days.

Three former Guantanamo inmates who told their “story”, or a story, in the movie “The Road to Guantanamo” will lead the protests against the US detention facility that includes a rally outside its gates in Cuba.
The film script was based on interviews with the so-called “Tipton Three” – Rhuhel Ahmed, Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal – who were inmates at Guantanamo before being released in 2004.
The family of Shafiq Rasul to this day still have no idea what he was doing in Afghanistan!
…Probably just turnip farming.
