'Al-Qaeda suspect' set free - SA
Erika Gibson

Pretoria - "You are not white enough to go to court," a policeman apparently told a Johannesburg man who had just been freed after 23 days without trial.

The Johannesburg man was freed on Friday.

Mohammed Hendi, 36, of Newclare denies al-Qaeda connections, which he said he was confronted with during questioning.

He was freed shortly before the High Court was to hear an urgent application for his release.

Hendi claims his ordeal started when he was invited by an Egyptian man to attend a discussion and watch a DVD on the September 11 2001 attacks in the United States.

I've been thinking about what I heard on Air America today:
Air America's Randi Rhodes: Bush 1 in meeting with Bin Laden's brother
at the moment of 911 attack. At a Carlyle meeting.

If this were any other American citizen they would be detained, jailed, for at least a week. If the person was Arab American he'd be prosecuted for something. They'd look at everything he/she did since the time he was born. Everything from making false statements on a credit card application to unpaid parking tickets. If the person was non-American they'd still be in solitary confinement in Guantanamo Bay with no legal recourse. So why shouldn't Bush 1 be treated like any other American? (Not to mention every familly member of the suspect would be detained too.)
