After Eight Years in Guantánamo,
He Yearns to Return

New York Times, by Carlotta Gall

Tunis - Dressed in a thick jacket and wool hat on a cool winter evening, counting the coins for his bus fare, Hedi Hammami looks like any other Tunisian on his way to work. But he walks with a limp and sometimes pauses midspeech and screws up his face in pain. “That’s Guantánamo,” he explains. After eight years as a detainee in the United States detention facility in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, he says he still suffers from headaches, depression and anxiety attacks from the torture and other mistreatment he says he suffered there, even six years after his release. Married with two children now and employed as a nighttime

Comments:
Definitely "fake news." This GITMO 0bama graduate should be called, not a "snowflake," but a "snowball."

So Guantanamo wasn´t so bad after all - three square meals a day, prayer mats, Korans, free medical and dental, an exercise yard, and so on.

If he walks with a limp, it isn´t because he was "tortured." He probably injured himself exercising, attacking or throwing feces at the guards.

Poor Baby! Just happened to be wandering around Pakistan and his paperwork ended up in Osama´s files. Just a little bureaucratic mixup I´m sure. Sent to Gitmo instead of the Club Med. Shame! Was tortured at Gitmo. Sure, we all know how tough things were at Gitmo and how they tortured everybody who showed up there. Then released. No job. No prospects, no job re-training. Should have been enrolled in a university somewhere. Perhaps Harvard could have taken him. Obviously was deprived right from the get-go. I suggest he be allowed into the US on a green card, be given a job at the VA and counseling to turn his life around. Are you all in support????

Kellyanne Conway made her return to TV on Wednesday night during an appearance on Fox´s Hannity to claim she hadn´t been sidelined by the White House as reported, insisting she spent the week off air looking after her kids. ´I´m not sidelined. Somebody´s trying to stir up trouble,´ she told Hannity and a crowd of fans at the Conservative Political Action Conference. ´If I´m out for a few days with four kids looking at houses and schools, a lot of my colleagues aren´t trying to figure out how to be a mother of four kids I assure you,´ she continued.

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/22/2017 5:59:28     Post Reply
A fake news story making the rounds on Facebook claims in the headline that Congress is concerned that former President Barack Obama might make a "treasonous coup attempt" against President Trump -- and that they´re taking steps to stop him. It´s not true. Though the headline screams "BREAKING: Congress Moves to STOP Obama’s Treasonous Coup Attempt Against Trump," only parts of the story are based on facts. It´s done by seeding the story with quotes that are true, but are twisted out of context. The original version of the article, posted on a website called Angry Patriot, has 38,000 shares.

Trudeau defends move to give

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday defended plans to give more powers to U.S. border agents stationed in Canada, saying travelers would at all times be protected by domestic laws. As part of a 2015 deal between Canada and the United States, Trudeau´s government has introduced draft legislation allowing U.S. border agents based in Canada more leeway to question and search people wishing to enter the United States. Critics say this increases the chance of abuse at a time when the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump is cracking down on immigrants, prompting dozens of people to cross the

President Trump has yet to name a new TSA administrator, but the need to fill that position appears increasingly urgent. (Snip) John Halinski, a former TSA deputy administrator, said the agency is in dire need of a leader. “The TSA is facing a critical time in how they move forward. It has always been about identifying and mitigating threats, and their job is to ensure people get on a plane safely and get from point A to point B,” Halinski told Fox News. "If you have too much security, you’ll disrupt transportation, but if you have too little, you’re vulnerable to terror, so you need to find that sweet spot.”

A federal judge ruled yesterday not to hand another 30 documents pertaining to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s secret email server over to a conservative watchdog group. Judge James E. Boasberg concluded that ´Judicial Watch has not provided a sufficient basis to believe that the information withheld by the State Department would shed light on any government misconduct,´ the decision read, according to Politico. Using the Freedom of Information Act, Judicial Watch, the group that got many of Clinton´s emails released, wanted additional correspondence about Clinton´s server released to the public.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway will appear on Sean Hannity´s show on Fox News Channel tonight, the network confirmed – following a report that she had been ´sidelined´ from TV interviews for poor performance. Conway was being kept from giving TV interviews after she inaccurately said President Trump had ´full confidence´ in his national security advisor Mike Flynn just hours before Flynn resigned, (Snip) Conway apologized to Trump after the incident and tweeted that she had his full support. ´POTUS supports me, and millions of Americans support him & his agenda," she tweeted.

Kellyanne Conway, once the most visible spokesperson for the Trump White House, has been sidelined from television appearances for making statements that were at odds with the administration´s official stance, White House sources told CNNMoney on Wednesday. Conway has not given a television interview since early last week. On that Monday, she told MSNBC that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had the president´s "full confidence." Hours later, Flynn resigned. The following day, Conway claimed Flynn had offered to resign, even though White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Trump had

Take heed, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan: If it came down to it, Republicans would trust Trump over the GOP leadership in Congress, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center. The report, released by the nonpartisan think tank on Tuesday and based on a survey taken earlier this month, found that 52% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents would put their faith in the president if there was a disagreement between Trump and congressional leaders. The exception: Republicans under the age of 40, who said they are more inclined to trust Congress. It was a mixed bag for members of Congress in

Supreme Court blocks death

Washington - The Supreme Court blocked the execution of a Texas murderer Wednesday because of racially discriminatory testimony presented by his own defense team. The 6-2 ruling was the second in the court´s new term to overturn a death sentence, and it could be a harbinger of things to come. The justices heard another death penalty case from Texas in November that hinges on a prisoner´s intellectual disability. (Snip) Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented. "Having settled on a desired outcome, the court bulldozes procedural obstacles and misapplies settled law to justify it," Thomas wrote.

A federal grand jury indicted 30-year-old Kipper Ken King of Spartanburg on two counts of making threats on the lives of the President of the United States and the President-elect, according to the U.S. Attorney General´s Office. Few details are available at this time about the nature of the threats or how the threats were communicated. However, court documents say King made threats around Nov. 28, 2016 to take the lives of both Obama and Trump — exactly 20 days after the presidential election. If convicted of the federal charges, King could face five years in prison and a $250,000 on the count of making threats against the president

Mexican man kills himself

A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

(Videos) - Terrifying footage has captured the moment Harrison Ford’s plane came dangerously close to crashing into a Boeing 737 carrying 116 people at a US airport. The CCTV clip appears to show Ford’s bright yellow Husky aircraft passing within a few feet of the passenger plane before the actor completely missed the runway. The near-miss happened while the 74-year-old Indiana Jones star was trying to land at John Wayne Airport in southern California last Monday. He appeared to mistakenly land on a taxiway instead of a runway after flying low over the airliner, which had just started taxiing.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., predicted Tuesday that many Republican lawmakers will break from President Trump by June if he continues to push forward with his agenda. Schumer told "The View" that while most Republicans have declined to publicly break with Trump during the first month of his presidency, many privately admit they have "real problems" with him. He also argued that some are sticking by him because of party loyalty and his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia´s seat on the Supreme Court.

A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina

Brzezinski made the comment on "Morning Joe" after co-host Joe Scarborough said that he agreed with a panelist´s view that Trump supporters are wondering why people are so upset over what the president is doing since he is implementing exactly what he campaigned on.

AmeriCorps sounded like a good idea. Create a program where American youth could basically earn free college by working and helping their communities. On the surface -- and if you don´t understand the inherent issue with any government program -- it sounds like a great way to help people get their educations. The program -- which never reached the level its creator Bill Clinton envisioned -- now finds itself on the chopping block along with other left-wing darlings such as the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

And, in Mesa, Arizona, a 24-year-old son of undocumented Mexican immigrants won the trust of a bank -- a green light for a mortgage -- but now fears deportation. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies threaten to crack a foundation of the American economy: the residential real estate market.

The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. (Snip) That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less. To be clear, all white voters matter. But Democrats must make tough, data-driven decisions about how to prioritize their work.

Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to

The mainstream media have stepped up their complaints about President Trump amid pious howls mostly about the First Amendment. The issue, however, has nothing to do with that. It´s that these organizations are openly asserting a right to define, control and impose their world-view on us. That´s the real problem. To start, they are defining what is and isn´t offensive in America today, claiming they can make those designations even while admitting they don´t have all the facts, and that you, the reader, deserve to lose your job if you fall outside of the rigid box they construct.
