Morning Mail for Friday: Muhammad Rahim is an Afghan who was a translator for Osama bin Laden, and is being detained at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, pending trial. In a short letter to his lawyer, Carlos Warner, Rahim discussed a pressing issue that has obviously been bothering him. Abuse by guards? Bad food? Nope. Shared by Warner with the Washington Post, the recently declassified letter read:
“Dear Mr. Warner! Lebron James is very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland.”
In another letter, Rahim complains that another detainee, alleged al-Qaeda member Majid Khan, had been given a kitten. We’ve come a long way from the days of water boarding.
