    this story definitely needs to be fleshed out more.

    But the key problem here is that we may never know what he really was up to.

    I'd say the key problem here is that a United States citizen was (until now) denied due process and likely tortured with the approval of the United States government.

      Almost surely tortured with the approval of the U.S., hell probably in the presence of U.S. "representatives."  That's what happened to Mamdouh Habib, about whom I've written, and countless other Guantanamo and Bagram air base (Afghanistan) detainees.

      Due process.  Oh yes.  That.

      Didn't you get the memo?  That's official US policy now.  Sigh.

      I hope they do this guy to a US court - if his "evidence" was elicited under torture, torture enabled by the US government on an American citizen, I'd love to see the whole shitstorm come and slap Bushco on the face.
