Guantanamo-Egyptian Returns Home

An Egyptian imprisoned at Guantanamo bay was released last week after a tribunal determined he should no longer be considered an enemy combatant. Will he get his fifteen minutes of fame to tell us all about his horrible experiences at national TV and in the papers? Or will he simply disappear into another prison? Given our prison systems love of ‘therapeutic’ treatment with water and electricity, will he even wish he was back at Gitmo?

In the U.N., the Security Council has approved sanctions of seven Egyptians associated with terror organizations. The sanctions include bans on travel and financial restrictions. Egypt suggested 20 of its nationals to be black-listed, but the US, Britain and Denmark thought the evidence were too thin.
