Evil and insane

Jeanne at Body and Soul extracts the essence of a story in the Washington Post.
one of the prisoners at Guantanamo, Saddiq Ahmad Turkistani, was freed from a Taliban prison, where he was held for supposedly trying to kill Osama bin Laden --- something he confessed to under torture. He offered to help the United States, with whom he thought he shared a common enemy. The U.S. offered him refuge. He apparently forgot to read the fine print in the deal. He was stripped, tied up, fitted with dark goggles, and tossed on a plane for Cuba, where he has remained for four years.
"I don't see any method at all, sir."
