    The same firms that volunteered to represent 9/11 terrorists pro bono now have no interest in defending the American citizens languishing in prison since January.At least 50 high-powered law firms that went out of their way to defend foreign terrorists in Guantanamo Bay free of charge are nowhere to be found as hundreds of American citizens languish in prison for charges related to entering the U.S. Capitol building during the January 6 riot.When foreign terrorists, including the accused mastermind who helped plan the 9/11 attack, were being held in the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, law firms from across the country...

    As it scrambles to deal with the surge of Haitian migrants at the southern border, the Biden administration is seeking a private contractor to operate a migrant detention facility at the U.S. naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, with a requirement that some of the guards speak Spanish and Haitian Creole, according to government records. A little-known immigrant holding facility on the base has a capacity of 120 people, the records say, and it "will have an estimated daily population of 20 people," according to a solicitation for bids issued Friday by the Department of Homeland Security. "The service provider...
  • REVEALED: 'American Taliban' John Walker Lindh who supported 9/11 and met with Bin Laden published anti-America op-ed under new name as 'former POW' on the 20th anniversary of the attacks

    09/21/2021 1:28:18 AM PDT · by blueplum · 12 replies
    'American Taliban' John Walker Lindh has penned an op-ed under the name Yahya Lindh that was published on the day the nation marked the 20th anniversary of 9/11. The bizarre opinion piece, published by The Intercept, does not identify the author as the notorious American who left his northern California home to fall in with the Taliban and met Osama bin Laden before the September 11, 2001 attacks. Headlined 'The Guantánamo Bay Internment Camp Is an Unresolved Vestige of the American Occupation of Afghanistan,' the article marks his most public overture since being released from prison after serving a 17-year...

    Afghan national Gholan Ruhani maintained his innocence after coalition forces captured him alongside a drug-trafficking militia commander and tossed him in the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Ruhani, represented by white shoe lawyer Rebecca Dick, said he was "a simple shopkeeper who helped Americans." Not quite. Days ago, Al Jazeera news captured Ruhani with fellow Taliban militants in the presidential palace in Kabul, as they announced the formation of an Islamic emirate. Ruhani, who cradled a machine gun, recited from the Quran and spoke of his time at Guantanamo. Dick, then a top-flight attorney at Dechert LLP, represented Ruhani...

    THE TOPLINE: The Biden administration plans to send the first group of Afghans - who are being evacuated amid threats to their lives for helping U.S. troops during the war - to a military base in Virginia, a congressional aide notified about the plans confirmed Monday. Spokespeople for the State and Defense departments later also announced the plans to send the first group of Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants to Fort Lee, Va.

    As per a ruling by the Lisbon court, only 0.9% of ‘verified cases’ died of COVID, numbering 152, and not 17,000 as claimed by the government. The ruling has proved that the government faked COVID-19 death statistics.Following a citizen’s petition, a Lisbon court was forced to provide verified COVID-19 mortality data.According to the ruling (read full judgment below), the number of verified COVID-19 deaths from January 2020 to April 2021 is only 152, not about 17,000 as claimed by government ministries.All the “others” died for various reasons, although their PCR test was positive.The data are from the Sistema de Informação...

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden has quietly begun efforts to close the U.S. detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, using an under-the-radar approach to minimize political blowback and to try to make at least some progress in resolving a long-standing legal and human rights morass before the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. After initial plans for a more aggressive push to close the facility — including rebuffed attempts to recruit a special envoy to oversee the strategy — the White House changed course, sources said. The administration has opted to wait before it reaches out...

    Republican lawmakers introduce resolution opposing the COVID 19 vaccination of Guantanamo Bay 'terrorists' before regular Americans. A vaccination program had been expected to begin on Monday at the maximum security detention camp at the United States Naval Station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which houses some of world's most infamous terrorists including the suspected 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Terry Adirim, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, signed the order Wednesday, to vaccinate the detainees to make it easier for federal prosecutors to move forward with war crimes hearings during the pandemic, Fox News reported.

    The Pentagon is 'pausing' a plan to have Guantanamo Bay detainees vaccinated against COVID-19 next week. Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby confirmed Saturday afternoon that the process was on hold following widespread outrage that terrorists were being given priority treatment for the in-demand vaccines. 'No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We're pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe,' Kirby wrote on Twitter.

    Here’s a real kick in the shin: chances are accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will get the COVID vaccine before you do. Accused terror masterminds like KSM and other detainees at Guantanamo Bay will begin receiving the coronavirus vaccine, the Pentagon confirmed Friday, even as the United States continues to experience severe shortages of the miracle jab. A spokesman for the Department of Defense confirmed that officials had signed an order which will see COVID-19 vaccinations “offered to all detainees and prisoners.”

    WASHINGTON - The oldest prisoner at the Guantanamo Bay detention center went to his latest review board hearing with a degree of hope, something that has been scarce during his 16 years locked up without charges at the U.S. base in Cuba. Saifullah Paracha, a 73-year-old Pakistani with diabetes and a heart condition, had two things going for him that he didn’t have at previous hearings: a favorable legal development and the election of Joe Biden. President Donald Trump had effectively ended the Obama administration’s practice of reviewing the cases of men held at Guantanamo and releasing them if imprisonment...
