Juma Al Dossary Among the Saudis transferred

Tales of Juma Al Dossary's numerous suicide attempts were among the most heart-wrenching stories coming out of Guantanamo. Things have gotten a bit better for Juma since he was transferred to Saudi Arabia along with 15 other Saudi nationals last week (Juma has dual citizenship with Bahrain). Juma has been allowed to meet with his family and they report that his health and spirits have improved.

He is currently (and hopefully briefly) behind held in Saudi custody. Funny to think that a week ago he was the "worst of the worst."
