Another Habeas Win

Judge Kollar-Kotelly has granted the habeas petition of Khaled Al Mutairi who went to Afghanistan in 2001 to build a mosque with money from his parents. He was accused of being associated with Al-Wafa and Al-Qaida, although the government's only evidence was his own admission that he donated money to Al-Wafa (unaware of any terrorist connections) and the appearance of his name on various lists of prisoners held in Pakistan.
Congratulations to Al Mutairi's counsel David Cynamon and Matthew Maclean.
