Young Terrorist Murderer Comes Home

From his jubilant fans at Reuters:

Young Afghan Guantanamo inmate freed, returns home

By Jonathon Burch

KABUL (Reuters) – Mohammad Jawad, one of the youngest detainees to be held at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, said on Tuesday after his return home to Afghanistan he had been abused and humiliated during six years in custody.

A teenager when he was held, he was accused of war crimes for throwing a grenade that wounded two U.S. soldiers in 2002, but was ordered freed in July by a U.S. judge who threw out his confession because it had been obtained through abuse.

He was one of the youngest detainees held at the prison. His lawyers argue that he was about 12 when he was arrested in 2002 but the Pentagon disputes that and has said bone scans indicated he had turned 18 when he was sent to Guantanamo.

Jawad’s lawyers say he was kept awake, moved constantly from cell to cell and treated harshly.

He arrived back in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Monday and was reunited with his family. Jawad was the latest departure from the controversial Guantanamo prison which President Barack Obama has pledged to close by mid-January 2010.

"There was a lot of oppression when I was in Guantanamo and these inhumane actions were not for just one day, one week or one month," Jawad told Reuters, sitting on cushions in his family home in the south of the capital.

"I was oppressed the whole time until I was released. They tortured prisoners very badly and did not allow prisoners to sleep, did not give enough food," he said.

Jawad was accused of throwing the grenade into a military jeep in 2002. He was arrested and imprisoned at the U.S. detention center at Bagram Air Base, north of Kabul, before being sent to Guantanamo in early 2003.

"They knew I was underage but they did not care about my age," Jawad said.

"They insulted our religion and our holy Koran, they insulted us and behaved in an inhumane way," he said.

A weary-looking Jawad stood and stretched his hands behind his back to show how he had been bound sometimes by his captors.

He said he and other prisoners were told to eat with their hands bound behind their backs, bending over and putting their mouths into plates of food.

Jawad said he had been freed because none of the charges against him could be proved.

"I remember the U.S. government lawyer provided evidence against me but could not prove anything and in the end, the judge said: ‘no charge against Mohammad Jawad can be proved and he is innocent’," Jawad said.

As we have proved countless times, the claims about Mr. Jawad’s youth are eleventh hour fabrications of his ACLU lawyers.

Whereas the (young) US soldier he confessed twice to murdering (and was seen by an Afghan policeman murdering) is really dead.

Once again, we will review the facts:

Mr. Jawad was seen by an Afghan policeman throwing the grenade at the US soldiers, killing one and wounding another and their interpreter.

Mr. Jawad’s partner was grabbed while in the process of throwing another grenade.

And, Mr. Jawad had two more grenades on his person at the time of his arrest.

As we have also previously noted, the assertion that Mr. Jawad is 12 years old is based on an Afghan ‘rights group’ who claims it was told that by Mr. Jawad’s mother. (As the BBC article notes, the science says he is at least 17.)

Lastly, as we have also already noted, Mr. Jawad confessed to his crimes at least twice – once to the Afghan police and then to the US authorities.

There has been no evidence whatsoever the Americans tortured him or that his confessions were coerced.

But never mind all of that.

One of the themes of the Obama regime seems to be ‘guilty as hell, free as a bird.’

But Mr. Obama says, ‘happy Ramadan!’

    MoMo Jawad will be practicing/ hard at work ASAP killing and maiming NATO infidels.

    Too bad we don’t (our leaders) have the same drive for the protection of our nation that MoMo has for his cause!

    Hey MoMo……………..”Happy Ramada Inn”

    Why didn’t the Afghan policeman shoot him?? Stupid question, eh?

    • Liberals Demise says:

      No rocketman….Great question!!

      I foresee where there will be a “Take No Prisoners” position taken by the grunts in the field because Barry keeps sending them back to “their” field of honor.
      Kill ’em all and let Allah reward them!

  3. proreason says:

    This is an unsubtle message to another group Obamy hopes will become future constituents…..the Taliban.

  4. canary says:

    So, is our kidnapped soldier going to be released?

    “”They knew I was underage but they did not care about my age,” Jawad said.””

    Did he not realise we lock up juveniles that murder too. The terrorists didn’t consider him underage to throw grenades and kill people. Maybe when he’s back in the game he won’t be so lucky to be arrested.

    Enemies .. foreign and domestic.

    That veteran Marine who spoke up the other nite .. God Bless ’em!!!


    • proreason says:

      The Marine should run for office. He took that weak-kneed congress hypocrit apart. It was awesome.

      Saw him on Hannity last night, and wow, just as good. Cool as a cucumber. He sure can handle himself.

      If that’s what we get now for corporals, hell, let’s just put the Marines in charge of the whole country!!

      Here’s the clip from Hannity.

      awesome. Gave me goosebumps. At our town meeting one of the Move.On org women who had manufactured sign, stood and said, she and her husband were vets, and how Senator had no mercy (guess she didn’t know Obama was after the vet’s health care) and the Senator responded.

      Wouldn’t you like to choose your own doctor instead of going to the VA. And everyone clapped. Me and my dad don’t use VA. My dad uses it for the leg he lost in war, but only for getting artifical legs updates. The medical treatment he got was inhumane and they guinea pigged him. Spent an entire year in VA hospital.

    Obama and Bill Ayers worked so hard on their committee to get easier sentences for young hoodlums.
