Freed Terrorist Murderer To Sue The US

From Iran’s Press TV:

Young Afghan freed from Gitmo to take US to court

Thu, 27 Aug 2009

The young Afghan Guantanamo detainee who has been recently released from the notorious detention facility intends to sue Washington over his "illegal detention".

The detainee’s lawyer said Thursday Mohammed Jawad would sue the US government for holding him behind bars for seven years "without charges".

Jawad, 12 at the time of his detention in 2002, arrived in his hometown earlier this week after he was freed when American judges ruled that he had been coerced into confessing to a crime against US soldiers.

According to the US government account, the detainee had hurled a grenade at a US vehicle in the Afghan capital of Kabul that left injured two American soldiers and their interpreter.

The judge who ordered him released said the government’s case was an "outrage" and "full of holes."

Jawad has maintained his innocence and described the case against him as fabricated. "I was an innocent child when they put me in prison."

His lawyers and family members say sleep deprivation and beatings were among the methods of torture he received at Guantanamo.

The US Justice Department nevertheless insists that Jawad’s criminal dossier is still open. It maintains, however, that the young former detainee’s transfer to Afghanistan makes it unlikely for US investigators to pursue his case.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who warmly received Jawad at his residence, denounced detentions at Gitmo.

"All cases of accused Afghans should be investigated by Afghans, inside the framework of Afghan rules and laws," Karzai said.

Gosh, we didn’t see this coming.

    Gladly serving my nation without payment or gratitude. Just a humble Marine ………. I.


  3. TBOU says:

    The UK Times had a longer article about him he claims he was 12 in 2002 and that his father was killed by the Soviets in the 80s. Do the math…

    I thought one of the soldiers died. See, being nice to them, doesn’t change their hatred for America. Obama has to know like everyone else in the world knows, that these terrorists can’t be converted to peace. Obama and his cronies like criminals and murderers, all with some excuse to hate America.

  5. TwilightZoned says:

    Roll the dice; take your chances. We’re broke and you can’t get blood out of a turnip unless…yes, I’m sure paying terrorists jury awards or settlements out of court could be just the excuse to raise taxes.

    “I was an innocent child when they put me in prison.”

    Ya, uh huh…whatever…

  6. canary says:

    Since Afganistan police also witnessed the terrorist throwing grenades, than why is Karzai treating him like a hero.

    “All cases of accused Afghans should be investigated by Afghans, inside the framework of Afghan rules and laws,” Karzai said.”

    He looks like he was beaten with an ugly stick! Now that’s torture.

  8. Confucius says:

    A string of costly lawsuits used to be a reason against capital punishment.

    So much for that.

    Where is John Edwards.

    He could “channel” the evil Americans who abused this tadpole.

  10. Tater Salad says:

    As a grunt in the Marines (66-69), 1stMarDiv, it would now seem appropriate not to take prisoners any more. I for one would not take any, seems to much trouble and BS by our own government and I wouldn;t want to lug this creep around just so he could sue me later. One round, one kill !
