Judge Denies Habeas Petitions for Two (updated)

Unfortunately J. Leon (the same judge that exonerated the 6 Algerian/Bosnians) denied habeas petitions for two men yesterday. The Judge refused to take into account evidence that certain statements made by the men were made after being tortured. Tough day for those men.
The ruling against the Yemeni captive, Moath Hamza Ahmed Al Alwi, can be found here. The ruling against the Tunisian prisoner, Hisham Sliti, can be found here. (thanks to Scotus for the cites)

Have you read My Guantanamo Diary by Mahvish Rukhsana Khan...she, like you, is my heroine as Ron Suskind is my hero. Please keep up the fight

Mahvish's book is remarkable as is she... thank you for the kind words.
