There he told a tale of savage beatings and the like -- hotly denied by American forces, but accepted as fact by the left.
From the New York Times on March 12, 2004:
Mr. Udeen's account is the first to emerge from the five British prisoners who flew home from Guantánamo Bay on Tuesday and were released after a brief period of questioning by the antiterrorism police. The government of Prime Minister Tony Blair has been bracing for a still uncertain public reaction to the detainees' personal accounts of life at Camp Delta. More of the accounts are expected to emerge in the next few days.
Graphic portrayals of alleged deprivations and abuse at Guantánamo Bay could further inflame antiwar sentiment in Britain and complicate Mr. Blair's relations with the Bush administration, which was slow to respond to British requests for the release of Britons detained there.
Separately on Thursday, a reporter for The Times of London, Tim Reid, wrote that he had met Mr. Udeen in a jail in Kandahar, Afghanistan, where fleeing Taliban forces had left him in early January 2002. Mr. Reid wrote that Mr. Udeen said he had been arrested by the Taliban, during a journey across Afghanistan to Iran, because he carried a British passport.
''We were praying for the Americans to come,'' he reportedly said. Instead, according to Mr. Reid, Mr. Udeen was arrested when Central Intelligence Agency officers arrived in Kandahar and took charge of the prisoners the Taliban left behind.The Blair government gave Udeen £1 million, and released him unconditionally. He took the money, and remained a radical Muslim.
The Daily Mail reported that last week, Udeen blew himself up in a terrorist attack on behalf of the Islamic State in Mosul, Iraq.
When there is no penalty for terrorism -- indeed a million-pound reward for it -- there is no deterrent.
Maybe multi-cultural diversity isn't a very good idea. It does have its drawbacks. Here is a young man of a different race whose parents are from a different country and culture who became an easy recruit for Islamic radicals.
