Karen Greenberg, executive director of the Center on Law and Security at NYU Law School, reviews the latest release of documents from WikiLeaks.
"A former Gitmo detainee whose files identify him as "a probable member of al-Qaeda," Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu, is now a key figure on the rebel side of the Libyan revolution, a leader of a rebel brigade in the northern part of the country."Who's investigating if he's working for CIA, to unseat Gaddafi?
Among so many revelations which seem so at odds with our core national values (or what used to be our core values), the treatment of Sami al-Hajj, the Al Jazeera reporter, and the reason he was picked up and held for so long seems right up there near the top of bad, bad actions by our government.
How do US reporters feel about what the US did to al-Hajj?
The Guardian has a good summary.
