Once released from Guantanamo --you are never really free

 The men released from Guantanamo, for the most part, are never really free. They carry the stigma of having been kept at Guantanamo and labeled a terrorist -- and they carry the scars. Scars from the torture, isolation and years of captivity. When they are released they know little about any deals that were made between the U.S. government and their host country. They are provided little, if any, support.

This is the story of one such man --Lutfi bin Ali. Unfortunately, it is a story that is all to familiar.
