Yemeni Languishes at Guantanamo Long After U.S. Approved Release: Dispute over Citizenship Leaves Saudi-Born Detainee in Legal Limbo

Date: June 13, 2007
Author: Anthony Shadid
QUOTE: In the legal netherworld that the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has represented since it was opened in 2002, Mohammed, once a cook for the Taliban in Afghanistan, remains stuck in a limbo of mistaken identities, bureaucratic inertia and official neglect. In the eyes of his lawyers, the young Yemeni's case is an indictment of a system...in which a man who faces no charge and no sentence remains deprived of the freedom he was granted more than a year ago.
