"The Biden administration is emptying out the Guantanamo Bay prison gitmo. And last month, Biden freed his first prisoner and accused terrorist named Abdul latif Nasser. And this is all, by the way, in fulfillment of Obama's dream, Obama's dream was, we don't want gitmo. In fact, we kind of want all those commanders back in the field fighting against the United States. It may seem like crazy idea for an American president to think this way. But not if you are an anti colonialist who basically thinks America is a force for evil in the world. And that strengthening our enemies is ultimately a form of social justice on the global scale. It's sort of writing the unjust ship of the world. And if it seems, again, too much to say that the United States has been actively putting its own enemies back in the field, this is actually confirmed by a recent study that looks at all the gitmo detainees going back to Obama and even earlier who were freed to see where they are now. Well, let's take a look. 20 years after the 9 11 attacks, we see U.S. intelligence documents show that 229 former gitmo detainees have returned to terrorism. They're basically fighting in the field somewhere in the world, mostly in Afghanistan, but also elsewhere. Against America. And 66% of them are at large, meaning they haven't been recaptured. They're not in some prison in some foreign country. And you would think that all of this would create pause in freeing more get more terrorists, but no, Biden has freed one and he's on his way to freeing more. By the way, Trump had an executive order to keep gitmo open and Biden reversed it immediately and the remaining detainees are sort of one by one, many of them have made petitions for release, and by the way these petitions are transparently absurd. For example, one of the gitmo alumni who was not one of the heads of the Taliban. This is a guy who helped capture the presidential palace in Kabul with armed fighters in the victory speech, he was like, I used to be in gitmo. This was part of his boasting rights. I used to be in gitmo. And this guy's name is golam Rouhani. And he said I got outta get more because I just stole those idiots in America. He says I told him I have to return to help my sick father run his family shop, and apparently the dopes in the United States go, oh yeah, he's 6 5 or 6. We gotta let him go poor guy. And now he's basically one of the inner circle of the Taliban in Kabul. If you look at other gitmo applications, at least 5 inmates have given the same excuse they've got to go visit their ailing mother, not the same woman evidently, but there are evidently 5 ailing mothers. Somewhere in Afghanistan or Pakistan and the gitmo guys need to have a really need to go home, you know. So with the exception of just a couple of guys, people like Sheik Khalid Sheik Muhammad, the actual planner of 9 11, he's not scheduled for release, but Biden wants to get even him out of gitmo. He wants you shut down gitmo, colleague Jake mom, I can't be there. And the net effect of this would be that Khalid Sheik Muhammad would now be if you wanted to try him, you'd have to try him in a normal court, and that would create a circus would have all the would essentially turn a military operation into a kind of domestic law case, as if to say this guy was some sort of a serial killer walking the streets of Chicago. It would be transferred, I think, inappropriately into that kind of a case. Now, according to a report, this is by the office of national intelligence. 729 people have been detainees have been released from gitmo all over the last several years. And about 220 of them are sort of back in the field, back in the fight. Let's remember in a sense that the model for this was created by Obama himself with the sort of Bergdahl trade. He gave 5 Taliban commanders for one deserter, and what did those Taliban commanders do? Went right back into fighting in Syria, fighting in the Middle East, fighting in Afghanistan. And again, I don't think Obama, you can keep saying that the Democrats are naive, but they're producing results. These are the predictable consequences of their actions, no doubt they were told that this was going to happen. I think this is what they wanted to happen and that in fact is.

"Those six scare miners that are stuck on the tarmac in Afghanistan are bargaining chips and knowing the way that the Biden administration negotiates. Which is like playing poker with your with your hand showing to the other people on in the table, right? Um I just fear that so many of those enemy combatants that that had been brewing in that in that prison down there are going to be released back into the field, and I'm sure that they've got all kinds of Great ideas for getting back at the United States, and I just think we're walking into another another kettle of fish that it's going to be terrible getting out of. Yeah, Bell, I I appreciate the call. Thank you. I saw this. I just pulled it up. Read this. A few days ago. Hundreds of released Gitmo detainees back Killing Americans. So there's this whole effort, of course, as you know, to empty Gitmo. And so now, these jihadists that we've been holding in Gitmo we are now releasing them and they're back to killing Americans. They're back involved in the war on terror. 20 years after the 9 11 attacks, US intelligence documents This New York Post by the way. Reveal that 229 rehabbed and they put the word rehabbed, of course in air quotes, rehabbed former Gitmo detainees have returned to terrorism and killing Americans. And an alarming 66% of them have not been recaptured and are still at large. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is quietly fring more of these terror suspects from Gitmo. All two fulfilled. They say his old bosses pledge to permanently close Gitmo. They're in Cuba. Shortly after taking office, Biden reversed President Donald Trump's executive order. To keep Gitmo open and is lining up inmates to transfer out of the prison with the goal of emptying Gitmo and shuttering it, even though the remaining prisoners have long been classified by military intelligence as the worst of the worst. And too dangerous to release. Listen to this. Last month, Biden freed his first prisoner accused terrorist Abdul Latif Nasser, are Leaving the number of remaining detainees at 39 10. Others have been cleared for release, including some of Osama bin Laden bodyguards. And 9 11 mastermind mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. The safe house operator of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, his safe house operator, according to Gitmo Parole board documents. So just in case you're keeping score. Donald Trump. Was killing terrorists.

"Us. When lion, this is democracy now, democracynow.org or the War and Peace report. I'm Amy Goodman with Juan Gonzalez as the United States imposes, new Cuba, sanctions, citing human rights abuses. We turned to look at the US military prison in Guantanamo, Bay Cuba this month. The first Guantanamo prisoner to be released under the Biden ministration returned to his home country of Morocco. Fifty six year old girl. Nasser was imprisoned for nearly two decades without charge and was cleared for release by the US military since 2016. With 39 prisoners, remain at Guantanamo. This comes as activists gathered last week in front of the cultural attache office for the United Arab Emirates, the Arab Emirates in Washington, DC, 2 Pro watch, The planned rendition, a former Guantanamo prisoners. Reveal man goes off back to Russia. He's currently being held in a UAE prison. After being released from Guantanamo in 2017, where he to, which held without charge for 15 years, Advocates say, 17, other former Guantanamo prisoners, are now locked up in the UAE office under inhumane conditions, this is Helen singer of witness Against torture torture. Well, no one after the rest of their lives. We are the preparations. We need to make sure that they are in good situations and continue to follow them and support them and attempting to make the rest of their lives. For more, we're joined by two lawyers representing these men Gary, Thompson's an attorney in private practice who's worked on pro bono for Guantanamo prisoners. He's the lead attorney for former Guantanamo. Prisoner faith in God's off. Also with us Mark. Mayor staff attorney for reprieve us who's represented, six men imprisoned at Guantanamo including Abdul Latif Nasser, who is just released back to Morocco. Mark, let's begin with you. Can you tell us the circumstances under which he was just released. And what's happening to Abdul Latif natural now? Absolutely, thank you for having me on. So the circumstances under, which he was released actually begin back in 2016, as home, ability of Nasser was held for close to two decades nineteen years without charge or trial. He was actually cleared for release by the periodic review board, which is a parole like Institution That was set up under the Barack Obama's presidency, and his staff by six members of federal agencies from the United States, including the Department of Defense Homeland Security. And The Joint Chiefs of Staff. They determined unanimously that Abdul Latif Nasser posed, no threat to the United States or anybody else and determined that he should be released from Guantanamo. Unfortunately, this determination came quite late in Barack Obama's presidency and the state department at that time, defer to the, the ministration says, we all know, was the Trump Administration. President Trump had campaigned on the idea of not closing on tan. Mm. Oh, and in fact, not transferring anyone out of Guantanamo Bay and largely kept to that promise. So even though Abdul Latif Nasser was cleared by senior, civil servants, from the US government, he had Set and wait until the political will within the United States changed. And as thrilled as we are that Abdul Latif Nasser is now out that he is back in Morocco and his with his family and is trying to start a new life and it's focused on the future. The fact remains that he lost close to two decades of his life and that the number of and 27 them are still there without charge or trial of waiting for the political will of this Administration to change as well. And Mark Laird, could you talk a little bit about how he came to end up in Guantanamo? How how was he originally captured and transferred and detained there? And why I never receive a trial? Well, I can say that, that the reason why he never received a trial is the same reason. Why twenty-seven of the men haven't received a trial either and that's because they have never faced any kind of charges at all. They're being held essentially as prisoners of War. Abdul Latif Nasser ended up in Guantanamo the way. A lot of people ended wage Guantanamo. There was a bounty program. Essentially that was being run in Afghanistan and Pakistan. I believe, I the number, I might be getting wrong, but I believe God, what the boundaries are being offered for turning over people to Afghan or American or Pakistani. Authorities was close to $5,000 at the time, which was a huge life-changing amount of money. And he, we happen to know in a lot of cases of people who ended up at Guantanamo that they were the result of people lying about the people who ended up there. Are or simply mistaken identity. That's the case of another. One of our clients who was still detained at Guantanamo Bay Achmed Rabbani. The story is actually detailed in the Senate torture report that page was detained mistakenly because the United States believed. He was, another man named Hassan Ghul, he was severely tortured, including techniques that haven't been used since the Spanish Inquisition off the United States, eventually, actually detained, mr. Hassan Ghul at the same prison Bagram that mister Bonnie was being held at massage on Google was eventually released from there. But now twenty years on much like the situation that Abdul Latif Nasser found him in just a month ago. I met were Bonnie remains there. So sadly, this is a situation that we've seen repeated for a number of the men who are still detained. And the calls have been growing for the Biden Administration to close once. Honorable, how could that be done? And do you think it's likely one of the easiest ways is to begin with releasing the ten men who have been cleared for transfer and working to release all twenty-seven of the men who had been again charged with any crime or at least a trial. It's unlikely that any of those men will ever face any trial. This is especially true in light of the fact that as wage I think as your viewers and listeners will know, the bite Administration has announced that the war in Afghanistan is supposed to completely End by. I think mid-august was the last estimate that they had. And I believe earlier in the show we heard President Biden saying that combat troops will be exiting Iraq by the end of the year that wage Is to me. And I think to a lot of observers that the, that the war is that led to these people being wrongly imprisoned in Guantanamo or ending. If there was ever a right and just timed out to be releasing things been, this is the time to do it. The only thing that might be lacking from moving these been out, there is political will if they haven't been charged with anything, if they haven't Faith trial for anything. If the wars are over, then the question isn't, what can the Bible Administration do to solve this problem? The question should be, what just ke patient?

The question should be, what just wage patient does the administration still have to be detail? Be to be detaining these people. I want to bring Gary Thompson into the conversation. The attorney who worked pro bono for Guantanamo. Prisoners and is the lead attorney for reveal magaza. Who is a former trying to move prisoner? Can you tell us his full story and then where he's ended up today how he started at Guantanamo? Yeah, thank you very much, revealment, guys office from an area in Russia called tartar, Stan, and he began to practice his chosen religion freely in late 1990s. He was a professional ballet dancer, then drafted into the Russian army, and came to a point in his life where he decided he wanted to leave Russia off and flee religious persecution simply to live a life of religious freedom with his wife and then young baby. They attempted to travel South own novel, made it across the border in Tajikistan and Afghanistan. And then Pakistan where he was arrested in March, 2002 by Pakistani police. And his Mark mayor mentioned also sold for bounty to United States authorities, who took them to Bagram, took them to qandahar and tortured him. He He suffered extreme interrogation and supposedly confessed under duress. He was then taken to Guantanamo in October of two thousand, two years where he's suffered greatly from many years under harsh conditions and and sometimes solitary confinement eventually, he was permitted to have counsel which is what she came in and we filed a petition for habeas corpus and in 2010 here, in DC where I live, judge Henry, Kennedy issued the writ of habeas corpus and ordered the United States government to release revealment gossip from Guantanamo, believe it or not. Then went through a the case, then went through a six-year Kafka ask appellate cycle, where he was not released and then in 2010 reveal also want to a periodic review board hearing like mr. Nasser that off. Mentioned and that same panel, cleared reveal for release. And then took the state department about six months to locate a country for reveal to go to, he cannot go back to Russia because Russia has a record of killing or torturing X Guantanamo, detainees return to them. So we thought it was our lucky day. When it was confirmed, that reveal could go to the United Arab Emirates, where several other or a dozen other. Detainees also went it was always reveal his dream to be an Arab country. He learned Arabic in Guantanamo, he understood Arabic culture, he wanted to be there and we really celebrated that day. Revealed was on the last plane out of Guantanamo, the day before Donald Trump was inaugurated. So it really felt like we had dodged something terrible. We were promised by our state department wage At the UAE had promised them that revealed would be released in six months that he would be treated humanely that he would be given a job. And a place to live in about six months time which were similar to the Saudi program for X Guantanamo. Detainees it didn't, come to pass it. Turned out that the UAE lied to the United States government. These so-called diplomatic assurances were, were simply all life is and reveal along with about two. Dozen other men have suffered even more in UAE, prisons. Most notoriously the hours in prison with these now, four and half years and they're not permitted reviewed by the International Red Cross or Red Crescent. They've been able to get out sporadic calls to their families with the help of Creve where Mister mayor works the dots have been connected. We know there's torture there. We know there's mistreatment and the the man stuck in the UAE like gravel hath. I'll said it's worse than Guantanamo worse than Guantanamo. So that, that's why with with eighteen men still there. We, we call the UAE get Mel East off as opposed to get my West and with the numbers had get mowed dwindling. Now 39 and 8 with 18 in the UAE they're they're really a pair and if biting a serious about closing Guantanamo, he needs to in his state department, needs to look into the concept of rear resettlement. Look at people like Ravel man. Goes off some of the Chinese Gary Thompson. I just wanted to ask you about this particular issue of the UAE as get more of the East to your knowledge. What has been the US, government's reaction to basically offloading. It's dead. Prisoners to another gulag Totally complicit the UAE past all these men off to the UAE, and as far as we know, did absolutely nothing to follow up on those automatic assurances. We apparently our state department at least under Donald Trump, just didn't care didn't care. That they were lied to and we've seen evidence that that our state department even now under the by the administration is really doing anything to remedy. The situation in the UAE some people in the same Department of told us there, you know, quote working on it or they're in touch with people in the UAE. But we're seeing nothing in the meantime, we're getting very, very scared that revealed might be rendered to Russia off or in the case of the yemenis who are in the UAE that their fate might take them back to Yemen where they could suffer. Just wanted to remind people what Joe Biden said. And the last Democrat Presidential debate when he was asked by PBS moderator. Michel sindoor about closing. One tana Mo President.

"Is democracy now democracy now dot org the war and peace report. I'm Amy Goodman with Juan Gonzalez. As the United States imposes new Cuba sanctions citing human rights abuses. We turn to look at the U.S. Military prison in Guantanamo Bay Cuba. This month the first Guantanamo prisoner to be released under the Biden administration returned to his home country of Morocco. 56 year old Abdullah thief Nasser was imprisoned for nearly two decades without charge and was cleared for release. By the U.S. Military since 2016. 39 prisoners remain at Guantanamo. This comes as activists gathered last week in front of the cultural attache office for the United. Arab Emirates in Washington D.C. to protest the planned rendition of former Guantanamo prisoner revealing back to Russia. He's currently being held in a UAE prison after being released from Guantanamo in 2017 where he too was held without charge for 15 years. Advocates say 17 other former Guantanamo prisoners are now locked up in the UAE under inhumane conditions. This is Helen qinger of witness against torture. They've been tortured. This man will live with that for the rest of their lives. We are the reparations we need to make sure that they are in good situations and continue to follow them and support them in attempting to make the rest of their lives. Fulfilled. For more we're joined by two lawyers representing these men. Gary Thompson's an attorney and private practice who's worked on pro Bono for Guantanamo prisoners. He's the lead attorney for former Guantanamo prisoner revealing Gaza. Also with us Mark mayor staff attorney for reprieve U.S. who's represented 6 men in prison to Guantanamo including Abdul latif Nasser who is just released to Morocco. Mark let's begin with you. Can you tell us the circumstances under which. He was just released and what's happening to Abdullah thief Nasser now? Absolutely. Thank you for having me on so the circumstances under which she was released actually began back in 2016. As you said was held for close to two decades 19 years without charge or trial. He was actually cleared for release by the periodic review board which is a pearl like institution that was set up under the Barack Obama's presidency and his staff by 6 members of federal agencies from the United States including the departments of defense Homeland Security and the joint chiefs of staff. They determined unanimously that optimal pose no threat to the United States or anybody and determined that he should be released from Guantanamo. Unfortunately this determination came quite late in Barack Obama's presidency and the State Department at that time deferred to the administration since we all know was the Trump administration. President Trump had campaigned on the idea of not closing Guantanamo and in fact not transferring anyone out of Guantanamo and largely kept to that promise. So even though opted Nasser was cleared by senior civil servants from the U.S. government he had to sit and wait until the political will within the United States changed. And as thrilled as we are that optimal chief master is now out that he is back in Morocco and is with his family and is trying to start a new life and is focused on the future. The fact remains that he lost close to two decades of his life and that a number of 27 men are still there without charge or trial waiting for the political will of this administration to change as well. And Mark mayor could you talk a little bit about how he came to end up in Guantanamo? How was he originally. Captured and transferred and detained there? And why did he never receive a trial? Well I can say that the reason why he never received a trial is the same reason why 27 of those men haven't received a trial either and that's because they have never faced any kind of charges at all. They're being held essentially as prisoners of war. If Nasser ended up in Guantanamo the way a lot of people ended up in Guantanamo. There was a bounty program essentially that was being run in Afghanistan. And in Pakistan I believe. The number I might be getting wrong but I believe what the bounties were being offered for turning over people to Afghan or American or Pakistani authorities was close to $5000 at the time which was a huge life-changing amount of money. And. We happen to know in a lot of cases of people who ended up in Guantanamo that they were the result of people lying about the people who ended up there or simply mistaken identity. That's the case of another one of our clients who was still detained at Guantanamo Bay Ahmed Rabbani. The story is actually detailed in the Senate torture report that he was detained mistakenly because the United States believed he was another man named Hassan Gul. He was severely tortured including techniques that haven't been used since the Spanish inquisition. The United States eventually actually detained mister Hassan Gould at the same prison Bagram that mister rabani was being held at. Mister Hassan Gul was eventually released from there. But now 20 years on much like the situation that optimal teeth nos are found him in just a month ago Ahmed Rabbani remains there. So sadly this is a situation that we've seen repeated for a number of the men who are still detained. And the calls have been growing for the Biden administration to close Guantanamo. How could that be done and do you think it's likely? Well one of the easiest ways is to begin with releasing the ten men who have been cleared for transfer and working to release all 27 of the men who have never been again charged with any crime or have faced a trial. It's unlikely that any of those men will ever face any trial. This is especially true in light of the fact that as I think as your viewers and listeners will know the Biden administration has announced that the war in Afghanistan is supposed to completely end by I think mid August was the last estimate that they had and I believe earlier in the show we heard President Biden saying that combat troops will be exiting Iraq by the end of the year. That says to me and I think to a lot of observers that the wars that led to these people being wrongly imprisoned in Guantanamo are ending. If there was ever a right and just time to be releasing these man this is the time to do it. The only thing that might be lacking from moving these Ben out of there is political will. If they haven't been charged with anything if they haven't faced trial for anything if the wars are over then the question isn't. What can the Biden administration do to solve this problem? The question should be what justification does the Biden administration still have to take DT to be detaining these people? I want to bring Gary Thompson into the conversation the attorney who worked pro Bono for Guantanamo prisoners and is the lead attorney for revealing who is a former Guantanamo prisoner. Can you tell us his full story? And then where he's ended up today..
