Gitmo Prisoners are Enemy Combatants because Northern Alliance Said So

YET MONEY WAS THE PRIME MOTIVATOR FOR THEIR CAPTURE (THE OFFER WAS $5,000 FOR ANY TERROR "SUSPECTS").  GIVE US YOUR UNWANTED FOR SENSORY DEPRIVATION AND TRAUMA PROGRAMMING, PLEASE!

UPI - Amnesty International says that a majority of US prisoners in Guantanamo Bay were captured on a $5,000 reward. The nongovernmental organization said Friday that more than 85 detainees at the Cuba prison were captured by the Afghan Northern Alliance and in Pakistan when the cash rewards were offered for every unidentified terror suspect handed over to US custody. Amnesty said that Pakistani courts have refused to offer protection for hundreds of the country's citizens who were taken prisoner in mass arrests and "sold" to the United States as terrorists with only the word of the captors as proof. The prisoners were taken to Guantanamo Bay, Bagram Airbase, and secret US-run prisons around the world, the organization charged. About 300 detainees have been released from Guantanamo Bay with no charges brought against them and many prisoners remain unaccounted for, Amnesty said, leaving them in danger of rendition and torture.
