"According to the New York Times, the British government has announced
that it has struck an agreement with the Obama administration to
release the terrorist Binyam Mohammed. Mohammed is an Ethiopian born
jihadist whose rendition (and alleged torture) is at the heart of the
civil lawsuit in which, last week, the Obama administration backed the
assertion of state-secrets privilege by the Bush administration.

The brief Times report takes pains to recite that Mohammed "was
detained in Pakistan in April 2002 and then secretly sent to Morocco,
according to officials from both countries and court documents. He says
he was tortured while in Morocco, including having his genitals cut
with a scalpel." Naturally, the paper skips over the serious terrorism
allegations against Mohammed: the fact that he was apprehended while
enroute to the United States to conduct terrorist attacks with (now
convicted terrorist) Jose Padilla, after meeting personally with bin
Laden and other top al Qaeda figures and receiving extensive terrorist
training in Afghanistan and Pakistan. At The Long War Journal and the
Weekly Standard, Tom Joscelyn has recounted those apparently irrelevant
details (see here).

Mohammed, who lived in Britain for about seven years (and in the U.S.
for two years before that) prior to joining al Qaeda in Afghanistan in
2001, has been an irritant for U.S./U.K. relations for years. He was
held at Gitmo and charged by the U.S. with war crimes. Though those
charges were dismissed for procedural reasons, military prosecutors
believe they have a very strong case against him — and the fact that
they charged it is some indication that they're not terribly worried
about Mohammed's torture claims. (To be clear, I'm not saying he
wasn't abused — I don't know if he was or he wasn't. My point is that
if the case was reliant on "torture" evidence, the prosecutors wouldn't
be looking to bring it.) In the U.K., human rights activists concerned
only about Mohammed's treatment but utterly unconcerned about the
atrocities he was planning to commit against innocent people, have
agitated for his release — and the Brits don't want the case tried
because they're worried about the public perception of whatever
involvement they had in his extradition.

To say this whole thing has the stench of a set-up is an
understatement. On February 5, a British court reluctantly denied a
demand from Mohammed's supporters that classified information about his
rendition and interrogation be released. A few days later, the Obama
administration reaffirmed the Bush state-secrets claim, ensuring that
the classified information would not be released here, either.
Great ... except now the two governments have quietly gotten together
and agreed that the terrorist himself will no longer be detained, much
less tried — he'll be sent to Britain where he'll be freed.

A couple of Fridays ago, the Obama administration promised families of
the 9/11 and Cole bombing victims that justice against terrorists would
be swift and sure. Well, this certainly is swift, isn't it?"
