Unlike the peaceful religion of Islam, the United States has a record of semi-justice. Wrongful convictions are overturned when all of the factors are right. In the United States it is not a crime to criticize Islam or any other nation for that matter. In Islamic nations the treatment of prisoners is a non issue. If you criticize the government or Islam you will be thrown in prison no questions asked. Under Sharia law, evidence is not a factor. In a Sharia court swearing on the Koran is considered evidence.
The great thing about the United States is our ability to criticize our own government. It is our ability to force our own government into doing something out of political pressure. In Dallas, Texas the innocence comision is coming to be a reality. Cases are being reviewed and wrongful convictions are being overturned. The great thing about Club Gitmo is that the treatment wasn't that bad compared to the prisons of the peaceful religion of Islam.
Chemical Ali recently complained that his prison cell was inadequate and that he wanted to be returned to the custody of the Americans, because his new Iraqi cell was “inadequate”. Nonetheless, he was returned to the detention center at Camp Cropper in Iraq.
So while Sami Al Hajj has now been freed and returned to Sudan, on a streatcher due to his voluntary hunger strike, the question has to be asked will the Islamic world forgive and forget this event? Probobly not, unlike America their world view will be constantly reminded of this while Muslim tourture of American Journalists and Civilian Contractors is nearly all but forgotten in America. Why? Because American Idol is on.
