Mohammed Sulaymon Barre

The case of Mohammed Sulaymon Barre is being used by human rights groups to demonstrate why they believe the prison in Guantanamo bay is wrong-even if their efforts equip al Qaeda and others who want to destroy the West.

The article below illustrates this point.

Mohammed Sulaymon Barre is A Somliland Native, now 42 and college educated, and was working in Pakistan for the Dahabshiil Company, a financial transfer firm with agents in 34 countries including the U.S.,

He was allegedly taken from his home in the middle of the night by Pakistani authorities. Originally from Somalia, Barre fled civil war to Pakistan where he received the assistance of the UNH CR , [the UN Refugee Agency] in the early 1990’s.

He has been in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in a US prison for over 6 years.

The Center for Constitutional Rights has challenged his detention based on the recent supreme court decision.

[The CCR aledges that he wants to go back to Somaliland.]

The Rest @ The Center for Constitutional Rights

This will be an interesting case, since this will raise the visibility of the status of Somaliland's independence from greater Somalis. Dahabshiil was, and is still connected the the funding of the Mujaheddin (many of whom are al qaeda affiliates).

He was probably taken for his direct knowledge of Hawala Operations in general, and specifically for how Dahabshiil is a vehicle for funding both remittances and the expenses of Jihadis.

He could probably go right to work funding the Next-Caliphate efforts of al Qaeda and sympathetic Mujaheddin-which is why the US will fight to keep him from being released.
