Guantanamo: The Voice of the Voiceless


By: Mullah Abdul Sallam Zaeef for VT

Former Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan

I read the painful letter from our brother Asadullah Haroon (an Afghan national), who has been in Guantanamo detention center for the past 13 years. In addition to brother Asadullah, Brother Abdur Rahim (an Afghan) is also in Guantanamo. Both are spending their days in misery, agony and have got no clue about their future.

For all Afghans, it’s a really painful story and more importantly a shameful ordeal.  How can we, as human beings, ignore such a suffocating and appalling condition?

What is quite tragic is the fact that both brothers are expecting our help and assistance from Afghanistan; So far, our response has been zilch! They are losing hope!

I call on all international human rights organizations to raise the voice of the voiceless.

Most importantly & specifically, I am calling on the authorities in the United States to end the sufferings of these individuals.

The United States has recently pressured both Kabul and the Taliban to release prisoners. Yet, they continue to hold Afghans in detention.

It is now time to release both brothers Asadullah & Abdur Rahim for the sake of peace.

  1. Who controls the GITMO trials regarding middle east suspects and the legal due process at Military Tribunals? The Khazarian mafia or the United States Marine Corps. This guy and his fellow middle easterners did not rig and set off the WTC demolition system, nor purchase the means, nor guide the drones. WHO CONTROLS THIS BULLSHIT? I have the plane fare. Send Dimitri Khalezov too if he is broke. Sell a motorcycle tire for one of your bikes to get him a ticket if he is broke. I am the guy who found exploding bolts for the WTC procurement manager in 1968. EXTRA WIDE shaped bolts that the Manhattan Iron Workers Union Local said were changed out at least once during the service time of the towers. I seriously doubt the two oxyacetylene torches severing the adjacent corner vertical columns were installed by clever Arabs who leaped from the jets, set up the torches, then crawled down to safety.
