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.

    Osama bin Laden’s translator Muhammed Rahim is now an expert on who is a bad man? His boss who treated women like chattel property, no better than cattle, and who killed or masterminded the killing of innocent people, including children all over the world, including many Muslims, this Osama bin Satan is a good man, and LeBron James is a bad man for leaving a team which proved to him they were not willing to really put great effort into building a championship team, leave Cleveland for Miami and win a championship, then win a team gold medal in the Olympics. Apparently, the Obama administration needs to give Rahim a puppy, bundle a puppy for him!

    Don’t give him a puppy, he might hurt it. And why is this sports news?

      Because I say it is. Now take this kitten and hush.

        Even though I agree with you, Rick, I have to admit… it’s 3 minutes of my life I’ll never get back :)

    Rick: Now that is funny. Personally, I would rather a bundled puppy, than a kitten any day, but I am so glad I am not in Guantanamo to receive one.

    That is why we should have executed MOST of this trash… dude is in Gitmo, worried about a basketball player, there is no way he will ever”change” his ways.

    No no no. President Obama closed Gitmo remember? He promised to do so 4 years ago….What?…Oh…um wait a minute…

      You are right. I forgot he did close Gitmo. Maybe that is why he is giving kittens to terrorists. That was another point of “the hope you can believe in.” I believe. I believe. I believe! Will that make it all right now?be
