According to AFP "The United States announced that Yasser Esam Hamdi, who has been kept in isolation as part of the war on terror for almost three years, would be sent back to Saudi Arabia where he was raised and stripped of his US nationality."
The Justice Dept. says, "As we have repeatedly stated, the United States has no interest in detaining enemy combatants beyond the point that they pose a threat to the US and our allies."
They couldn't prove after 3 years that this guy should have been held so long in the first place, even the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 against the government, and now he has to give up his citizenship?
(What's with the stripping the citizenship thing anyway? They act like its some slick lawyer trick to keep terroroists from getting the noose or something.)
Boy, that really says something when you'd rather go to Saudi Arabia than stay in the U.S. Eventhough the U.S. has told the Saudis they really had no evidence against this guy that he did anything wrong, I'm sure they'll be understanding and just torture him a little bit.
