The War on Terror is a Lie

Adnan Latif, a 32-year-old from Yemen, had been held at Guantanamo without charge since January 2000

The War on Terror just like the War on Drugs is a lie.  It is a farce which is designed to villainize  the weak and the poor.   It is a propaganda war against those who cannot fight back.  Those in power need bogey men to keep the public scared and unwilling to question the nefarious deeds done in their name.  The only winner of these fake wars are those who make their ill gotten gains off of the misery of others.  Think of the owners of the private prisons, the prison supply companies, the bomb factories, the gun factories, the ammunition plants, these are the parasites which feed off of humanities pain.  Death and destruction have become the currency on the New World Order,  paying it's debts in blood.

Adnan Farhan Abdul Latif, an INNOCENT man who spent 11 years at Guantanamo Bay, was mysteriously found dead in his cell today. May Almighty GOD give him rest and peace. 

The cause of his death has been recorded as unknown and may never truly be known, but Latif had long suffered from feelings of extreme depression during his time in jail, having made several suicide attempts in the previous years.

Latif had long complained of abuse by prison staff and of his deteriorating physical and mental condition during his imprisonment. Two years earlier, he had written that guards "entered my cell on a regular basis. They throw me and drag me on the floor... they strangle me and press hard behind my ears until I lose consciousness".

In 2009 he slit his wrists saying that "Life in this place make death more desirable than living".

Latif was initially captured by Pakistani bounty hunters in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks when a mixture of confusion and desire for vengeance resulted in the effective labeling of any military age Arab males found in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

 Labeled as potential aimed him a terrorist and handed him over to the US military in neighboring Afghanistan.Later it would come out that such bounty hunters had been unscrupulous, detaining individuals and labeling them as terrorists baselessly in order to collect large cash incentives from the US military for their handover. 

No evidence was ever found connecting him to terrorism or violent militancy of any kind, and later medical examinations taken of him upon intake into military custody would corroborate his story regarding the nature of the head injuries he had come to Pakistan to treat. Indeed, when he was apprehended he was found not to be in possession of weapons or extremist literature of any kind - what he had with him were copies of his medical records.
 During all his years in custody Latif has never been charged with nor convicted of any crime related to terrorism.

To add insult to injury Latif had been recommended for release from Guantanamo by the Department of Defence since as early as 2004, and again in 2007, which said at the time that it had determined that he "is not known to have participated in any combatant/terrorist training". In 2009 a special task force commissioned by the Obama administration also ruled that Latif should be released.

But, like all of the other lives destroyed by the FAKE war on Terror and the fake war of Drugs,

Who cares?

Who Cares that a man named Latif spent the everyday of the last decade of his life being tortured?

Who cares?

 Who Cares for Latif, for all the other INNOCENT men women and children slaughtered in the name of the
War on Terror?

Who cares?

Who Cares that in American Custody, Under American Justice an INNOCENT Man was imprisoned under CRUEL and UNUSUAL circumstances for the rest of his life?

Who Cares?

Do you Care?
