If war in Afghanistan is over, asks prisoner languishing at offshore prison, why am I still here?

After 13 Years of Hell, Human Being Held without Charges Has One Question for US
If the war in Afghanistan is over, asks prisoner languishing at offshore prison, why am I still here?

byJon Queally, staff writer





"The world may turn a blind eye and find this number small. But for each of us here, the cost of our indefinite and unfair imprisonment is beyond immeasurable. Our families have lost fathers, brothers, husbands, and sons to this hell on earth. Many of us have unnecessarily lost over a decade of our already short time in this world, yearning to be free again."


—Moath al-Alwi

“The South is the last bastion of liberty and independence. I know we’re going to lose eventually.”

"we’re going to lose eventually.”

It has been quite a few years since the lost cause has appeared quite as lost as it did Tuesday. As the afternoon drew on and their retreat turned into a rout, the lingering upholders of the Confederacy watched as license plates, statues and prominently placed Confederate battle flags slipped from their reach.

“This is the beginning of communism,” said Robert Lampley, who was standing in the blazing sun in front of the South Carolina State House shortly after the legislature voted overwhelmingly to debate the current placement of the Confederate battle flag. “The South is the last bastion of liberty and independence. I know we’re going to lose eventually.”

“Our people are dying off,” he went on, before encouraging a white reporter to “keep reproducing.”
