Shaker Aamer, the last British resident to be held in Guantanamo Bay, has been released, having been detained there for 13 years.
He was captured by bounty hunters in 2001 while doing charity work in Afghanistan. George W Bush (2007) and Barack Obama (2009) both cleared him for release…a long time ago. Guantanamo now holds only those never convicted of anything. Mr. Aamer had never even been charged with anything!
Only when we embrace the rule of law will America be respected in the world. This is the path to more peaceful tomorrows.
