Terror Suspect Claims Torture But Look At His Complaints ~ LMAO

Terror Suspect Claims Torture by Americans, Not Enough Entertainment at Guantanamo Bay

Fox News

An accused enemy combatant held at Guantanamo Bay told a military hearing he was physically as well as mentally tortured there by having to read a newsletter full of 'crap,' being forced to use unscented deodorant and shampoo and having to play sports with a ball that would not bounce.

Majid Khan of Pakistan denied any connection to Al Qaeda and said he was tortured and his family hounded by U.S. authorities, according to a redacted transcript released Tuesday by the Pentagon.

Khan told an April 15 hearing called to determine whether he was rightly classified as an "enemy combatant"... that he also had his baby pictures taken from him, that cleaners left marks on his cell walls and that detainees have no DVD players or other entertainment.

Khan was captured in Pakistan in 2003. The military says he has provided support to Al Qaeda and has expressed a desire to assassinate Pakistan's President Pervez Musharaff.

The transcript, however, includes detailed descriptions of what Khan said was abuse at Guantanamo. He said he has been unable to see his daughter, was denied communal recreation for 11 weeks.

And he complained that he was only given cheap unscented soap and shampoo, and that in the recreation room there is "no weight lifting machine, no toilet, no sink, ho hoops, and even balls them self have little air in them; they hardly bounce.".
"They know my weaknesses — what drive me crazy and what doesn't," he said.

Khan, who grew up in Maryland and is the only U.S. resident among 15 detainees the government considers most dangerous, also described suicide attempts where he "chewed my artery which goes through my elbow."

Poor Baby!!!!!!
Prison is NOT a resort.
You did the crime,now you pay the time.
That's what they mean by doing "hard time"
Holy Moly--He's probably getting the best treatment he's ever had and he whines about it.
There are people here who would give their right arm to have half what he has right now.

Why is this pantywaist dangerous? He sounds crazy to me. He grew up in Maryland reading a newspaper full of crap every morning. The Washington Post.

I have to wonder, were they 'Nappy Headed Ho Hoops'??

Lynn, all those things he's complaining about not having are commonplace in US prisons. For some reason he believes he should receive the same treatment as violent criminals here in America's prisons. Maybe prisoners here in American have it too good.

Well, if being forced to read a newspaper full of crap is a criterion, I've got a helluva lawsuit myself. . .
But I'll tell you why this "pantywaist" is dangerous: there are too many leftist-appointed judges who will support this stupidity.

They should laugh his complaint right out of court if it gets that far.
