OSAMA BIN LADEN’S COOK SENTENCED BY A MILITARY COURT

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on August 12, 2010

A US military tribunal has sentenced Osama bin Laden’s former cook to 14 years

 in prison, but he is expected to serve far less under a plea deal that remains

secret.

Sudanese-born Ibrahim al-Qosi pleaded guilty last month in the war crimes court

at the Guantánamo Bay US naval base to charges of conspiring with al-Qaida.

Al-Qosi has already served 8 years in detention at the Guantanamo Bay prison awaiting trial.

US military prosecutors have indicated that further related trials will commence soon. It is believed that bin Laden’s

former hairdresser,  his former tap dancing teacher, and some guy who said hello to bin Laden on a street in

Saudi Arabia, will all face trial for having given material support to a terrorist organization.

Andrea Prasow, a lawyer observing the al-Qosi trial for Human Rights Watch, said “I think this proceeding

was a farce.”

Amen.
