My remaining client at Guantanamo is Algerian so I have been anxiously awaiting the news from Algeria regarding the fate of two former Guantanamo detainees who were returned home and quickly charged by the Algerians for being connected to terrorists "because the Americans said so." Today we learned that the final two were acquitted by the Algerian court after finding there was no evidence they belonged to a terrorist group.
You can read more here.
I feel very confident that my client would have the same fate if only I could get him home-as our government has absolutely no evidence that he was tied to any illegal or terrorist activity. Unfortunately our Government has no interest in sending the men who remain at Guantanamo and COULD go home, back to their homelands... so my client remains.
Shame on my country.
