Let it not go unnoticed

That Sami al Hajj, a Sudanese citizen, was held 2,340 days at Guantánamo bay before being released last week. Hajj was never prosecuted; the U.S. did not make public its full allegations against him.

In a hearing that classified the cameraman as an enemy combatant, U.S. officials alleged that in the 1990s, Hajj was an executive assistant at a Qatar-based beverage company that provided support to Muslim fighters in Bosnia and Chechnya.

May the world know that there is at least one American who noticed this violation of human rights, and believes, nay, knows, this is contrary to the very principles upon which our country was founded. As-sallamu aleykum, Sami al Hajj.
