Thank Gawd for Sudan!
by

Judging by Jacob Laksin’s fine reporting from Guantanamo Bay, you perhaps wouldn’t expect Sami al-Haj’s first words upon release to be “I’m very happy to be in Sudan,” but, then again, whatever the crime or non-crime, freedom probably tastes better than captivity just about anywhere. Still, his present location does make declarations aimed at the United States such as, “Justice comes from lifting oppression and guaranteeing rights and freedoms and respecting the will of the people and not to interfere with a country’s internal politics,” seem a teeny bit ironic, even if you can’t expect the guy to be anything but bitter. (Especially when one considers no charges were ever brought and, thus, his story of media-member-mistaken-for-a-criminal–something I have some minor experience with under very different circumstances–might very well check out.) Or perhaps he is, as DailyKos commentors are suggesting, Franklin-Jefferson incarnate roaming the wondrous free lands of Sudan.
