May 23, 2014, Global Day Of Action To Close Guantanamo. Now. And For Good.
THE YEAR 2009 was the year ICE first discovered that someone by the name of Tanveer Ahmad—a Pakistani taxi driver as it turned out—had disappeared somewhere in the U.S. immigrant detention dungeons (see http://labloga.blogspot.com/2010/05/jean-blum-finger-in-goliaths-eye-part.html). But 2006 was the year three perfectly good, healthy people managed to disappear in the indefinite detention system at Guantanamo Bay. Their names need to be remembered: Yasser Talal al-Zahrani, Salah Ahmed al-Salami, and Mani Shaman al-Utaybi.
