An Insignificant Yemeni at Guantanamo Loses His Habeas Petition | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

An Insignificant Yemeni at Guantanamo Loses His Habeas Petition

He eventually fell asleep on the floor of the cage, but hours later he was awakened by the sound of an IRF team entering the cage in the dark. The team shackled him, and he put up no resistance. They then beat him. They blocked his nose and mouth until he felt that he would suffocate, and hit him repeatedly in the ribs and head. They then took him back to his cell. As he was being taken back, a guard urinated on his head. Mr. Ismail was badly injured and his ear started to bleed, leaving a large stain on his pillow. The attack on Mr. Ismail was confirmed by at least one other detainee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does this matter?

Because if any US government gets away with this kind of behavior with impunity, and no habeus corpus, with a prisoner of war, it will not be all that long that such a government would believe that it could indulge in such behaviour against any US citizen who simply may have a legitimate criticism of that government.

If you don't believe me, take a look at the Lieberman/McCain bill, introduced last month in Congress.

"One of Congress' most notoriously hawkish duos, Sen. John McCain [R, AZ] and Sen. Joseph Lieberman [I, CT], recently introduced legislation in response to President Obama's decision to try Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Christmas Day airplane bomber, in a criminal court. Their proposal, which they are calling the Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention and Prosecution Act, would empower the U.S. military to arrest anyone, U.S. citizen or otherwise, who is suspected of terrorist associations and detain them indefinitely, without right to a trial."

I don't know if that is making the hair on the back of your neck stand up straight and start tap-dancing, but this bill is certainly doing that to mine!
