McClatchy: Gitmo Turned Innocent Afghans Into Terrorists
Horror of Horrors!
The innocent Afghans confined by the Bush Regime turned to radical Islam only after their tortuous experiences at Club Gitmo.
Was it Gitmo rage that forced Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi to blow himself up in Iraq after his stay in Gitmo?
Tom Lasseter at McClatchy News says that innocent Afghan prisoners turned to violent jihad only after their stay at Gitmo.
McClatchy Newspapers reported:
Mohammed Naim Farouq was a thug in the lawless Zormat district of eastern Afghanistan . He ran a kidnapping and extortion racket, and he controlled his turf with a band of gunmen who rode around in trucks with AK-47 rifles.
U.S. troops detained him in 2002, although he had no clear ties to the Taliban or al Qaida. By the time Farouq was released from Guantanamo the next year, however – after more than 12 months of what he described as abuse and humiliation at the hands of American soldiers – he’d made connections to high-level militants.
In fact, he’d become a Taliban leader. When the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency released a stack of 20 “most wanted” playing cards in 2006 identifying militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan – with Osama bin Laden at the top – Farouq was 16 cards into the deck.
A McClatchy investigation found that instead of confining terrorists, Guantanamo often produced more of them by rounding up common criminals, conscripts, low-level foot soldiers and men with no allegiance to radical Islam – thus inspiring a deep hatred of the United States in them – and then housing them in cells next to radical Islamists.
How sad– the innocent turnip farmers were forced into extremism because of Bushitler.
