The Obama Administration announced that a suspected dirty bomber trainee will be released from Gitmo.
The Daily Mail reported:
An FBI document outlining the case against a British ‘resident’ held at Guantanamo Bay has revealed how he allegedly met Osama bin Laden while being trained for jihad at an Al Qaeda camp.
Investigators also believe Binyam Mohamed was planning to blow up an apartment block in the United States when he was arrested.
Mohamed, an Ethiopian who lived in Britain, claims he was mistreated while being questioned in Pakistan, Morocco and Afghanistan and that British agents were complicit in the way he was handled…
U.S. authorities claim Mohamed fought against anti-Taliban Northern Alliances forces and, because of his UK residency, was selected by Al Qaeda and trained to construct and detonate a radioactive ‘dirty bomb’.
He was arrested at Karachi airport as he tried to board a London flight in 2002. His photo had been inserted into another man’s genuine British passport.
Ethiopian-born Mohamed, came to London in 1994 as a 16-year-old seeking asylum. He was refused refugee status but granted exceptional leave to remain in 2000.
He studied electronic engineering and got a job as a caretaker in Kensington. He also converted to Islam and attended a mosque frequented by radical Muslims.
The FBI alleged Mohamed watched many jihad videos while working part-time at mosque in 2000.
The next year he is said to have saw Osama bin Laden giving a speech in Afghanistan at the notorious al Farouq camp and it is his presence there that is the crux of his legal battle to have the U.S. papers released.
As Dick Cheney said earlier this week:
“When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry.”
