51/2 years for bin Laden's driver | Philadelphia Inquirer | 08/08/2008
I haven't been following the case.
Aside from being a driver, what did this guy do?
Very smart...let him do some time...and then let him lead us right back to bin Laden....
Nothing. He drove cars, for a salary. That somehow deserves 5.5 years in prison.
Because there is just loads of evidence that this guy was close to OBL, and that he wasn't just a hired servant. Oh, and the loads of evidence how OBL is a fucking moron and will let people who have spent 5 years in Gitmo to get close to him again.
If he was knowingly assisting terrorism... damn straight he deserved prison
In his opening statement earlier Tuesday, the lead prosecutor contended that Hamdan had learned details of the Sept. 11 attacks, including the intended target of the fourth hijacked plane, which crashed in a Pennsylvania field.
"Virtually no one knew the intended target, but the accused knew," Navy Lt. Cmdr. Timothy Stone told the court, saying Hamdan had admitted to interrogators that he overheard Bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri talking about attack plans while he drove them. But chief prosecutor Army Col. Lawrence Morris indicated at a news conference later that the eavesdropping occurred after Sept. 11, not before.
As the government began calling witnesses against Hamdan, two U.S. soldiers testified about the tense and chaotic backdrop to his capture and early interrogation near Kandahar, Afghanistan, including three violent incidents involving cars stopped at a vehicle checkpoint in the village of Takhteh Pol. Prosecutors have alleged that two SA-7 surface-to-air missiles were found there in Hamdan's car.
While Soufan has described the driver as a follower, he has also said that Hamdan swore an oath of loyalty to Bin Laden.Bin Laden's driver knew 9/11 target, lawyer says - Los Angeles Times
Lmao..just a driver indeed...
Why don't you find some BBQ Tongs, and pull your underwear out of you butt crack dude. I was joking. What an ass.
Your right...if he didn't drive OBL around, 9/11 never would have happened.
He wasn't "assisting" terrorism. He was working for them in a NON-criminal capacity.
Oh wait...didn't he get acquitted of those charges? So now a prosecutor alleging something happens makes it somehow true? And since when did coerced confessions become evidence?
