7 Afghans Return Home After Imprisonment

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Seven Afghan men on Saturday arrived in their home country
_ weary, angry and proclaiming their innocence _ after years of imprisonment in the
U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

With long, unkempt beards and wearing blue numbered uniforms, the men appeared
at a news conference beside Sibghatullah Mujaddedi, head of Afghanistan's
reconciliation commission. The commission assists with the release of detainees from
Guantanamo and another U.S. prison at the Bagram military base north of Kabul.

All seven men said they were wrongly arrested, but that they were not beaten or
mistreated in any way during their imprisonment.

In interviews with The Associated Press, one claimed he was forced to join the
Taliban, while another said he was arrested merely for being Muslim.

1. ah, that wonderful war on terra.
how sweet it is.

I have concluded that the people infesting our executive branch are not normal. Normal people have a sense of empathy, scruples and shame. All of thesetraits are absent in these fiends. It must be a hiring requirement.

A U.S. Air Force plane flew the man to Dhaka's Zia International Airport
direct from Guantanamo Bay prison, a senior immigration official at the
airport said.

"The man, Mobarak Hussain Bin Abul Hashem, has been handed over to
police for interrogation," he said.
