⏱️ A moment in time
There are not many days of my life I can’t remember in vivid detail like Sept. 11, 2001. I’m sure for most people the 20th year after the terror attacks are bringing back all sorts of memories. You don’t have to share yours with me but just know that whatever you feel on this day, you’re not alone.
Medical review upheld for Saudi prisoner at Guantanamo
WASHINGTON A federal judge has turned back an effort to delay an independent medical review for a Saudi citizen held at the Guantanamo Bay detention center who was so badly mistreated in American custody that he cannot be put on trial. The government has never said what it plans to do with him and his attorneys are seeking to have him returned to his native Saudi Arabia for medical treatment. The prisoner has been diagnosed with severe mental illness, including schizophrenia, apparently due to a brain injury from a childhood car accident in Saudi Arabia. Ramzi Kassem, an attorney for al-Qahtani, said he thinks the government is worried about what an independent medical panel would conclude about his client. Theyre concerned the mixed medical commission will come back and say he meets the criteria for medical repatriation, said Kassem, a law professor at the City University of New York.
