Adel Hamad freed today

I am overjoyed to tell you that Adel Hamad has been released from Guantanamo Bay today and is back with his family in the Sudan.

I can't imagine what five years in jail can be like when you are not allowed to know what the charges are against you, and you aren't allowed to know even when your release has been agreed.

I am happy for Adel Hamad, and hope that the other people in Guantanamo Bay are either given the due process of a trial, or released back to their countries, too.
