Gitmo Detainee Being Released to Britain

Guantanamo detainee Binyam Mohamed is being released to Great Britain.

Mohammed's case was a source of tension between the United States and Britain. Britain's High Court said this month that it was reluctantly sealing information related to Mohammed's allegation that he was tortured in Morocco, adding that the United States had threatened to withhold intelligence cooperation with Britain if the information was made public.

....Officials in Britain have said Mohammed faces no charges there and will be released upon his return.

Binyam was arrested in Pakistan in 2002. In 2004, he was flown to Gitmo. Where was he in between? He says Morocco, where he was tortured. The U.S. still refuses to confirm it had him flown to Morocco. Our prior coverage of his case and his torture allegations is accessible here.
