US declares Qatari ‘enemy combatant’
A Qatari national accused of being an al-Qaeda member has been declared an enemy combatant and handed over to the military. He is now with the Navy in South Carolina, where he can be held indefinitely without charge and loses his right to legal representation. Mr Marri’s lawyer, Mark Berman, told the Reuters news agency he had not been able to speak to his client for almost three weeks.
If a U.S. citizen was held on indefinitely foreign soil without charge, and not allowed to see a lawyer, the Bushies would be screaming about how we need to invade that country to teach them Democracy.
