He was to testify against a soldier who allegedly mistreated him, but won’t make the trial.
Unless it’s some sort of prisoner abuse cover-up, I’d like to think that the “escape” from a prison in Afghanistan is, um, related to another hot story today: CIA holds terror suspects in secret prisons. But I doubt it.
If this guy, Omar al-Farouq, really did escape in July as the Pentagon claims, some heads better have rolled (figuratively). Because if he gets back into circulation, heads will roll (literally).
And please explain why ‘secret’ CIA prisons are on the front page. If they’re really supposed to be secret, hammer whoever leaked it and and hammer whoever published it.
Does the CIA actually even have any ‘secrets’ anymore?
UPDATE: The WaPo even has pictures (pictures!) of this ‘secret’ CIA prison. Sheesh.
