From the transcript of an interview with Kuwaiti detainee at Gitmo
Broadcast on the BBC yesterday, 3 March 2006.


Q: Before all this happened, what was your view of America?

A: I loved America. It freed my country from Saddam Hussein. My father fought with America against Saddam. I respected America. It stood for human rights and fairness around the world. America was the country we all looked up to.

Q: What is your view now?

A: It has abandoned all of its own traditions and beliefs which were the cause of my respect for it. As someone who lived in the US, I cannot believe the American people know what is happening down here. This is wrong.
