Held 14 Years Without Charge, CIA Torture 'Guinea Pig' Abu Zubaydah Asks for Freedom | Common Dreams | Breaking News

Held 14 Years Without Charge, CIA Torture 'Guinea Pig' Abu Zubaydah Asks for Freedom | Common Dreams | Breaking News: Both his representative and the government official emphasized Zubaydah's good behavior in the prison as well as his condemnation of the Islamic State (ISIS).

"He has no desire or intent to harm the united states or any other country, and has repeatedly said that the Islamic State is out of control and has gone too far," the statement read.

But as the Guardian noted, "during the publicly open portion of a quasi-parole hearing to consider his release from the prison at Guant�namo Bay, there was no mention of the torture endured by the 45-year-old Palestinian."

And despite President Barack Obama's recent efforts to decrease the population of Guant�namo, one of Zubaydah's attorneys, Joe Margulies, feels strongly that "Abu Zubaydah will not be released," which Guardian reported David Smith attributed to his "deep knowledge of CIA torture."

Margulies continued: "Here’s the bottom line. Since Barack Obama took office, there is no one more different—who they thought he was and who he is—than Abu Zubaydah. He has done nothing that authorizes his continued detention. It is morally and legally unjustified."
