SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - The Pentagon has dropped charges against a Saudi at Guantanamo who was alleged to have been the so-called "20th hijacker" in the Sept. 11 attacks, his U.S. military defense lawyer said Monday.

Mohammed al-Qahtani was one of six men charged by the military in February with murder and war crimes for their alleged roles in the 2001 attacks. Authorities say al-Qahtani missed out on taking part in the attacks because he was denied entry to the U.S. by an immigration agent.

But in reviewing the case, the convening authority for military commissions, Susan Crawford, decided to dismiss the charges against al-Qahtani and proceed with the arraignment for the other five, said Army Lt. Col. Bryan Broyles, the Saudi's military lawyer.


Many "20th Hijackers" are there?

Why isn't Dick Cheney in prison?

Just enough to keep the wars going...

What's next? Attack of the Son of the 20th Hijacker?

Coming soon

The "War on Terror" board game.... every tenth position you roll one dice.... if you roll a number other than one.... you capture al-CIAda's #2 in command!!! but if anyone remembers his name you have to go back 5 spaces.

When you get to the final space.... you go down a memeory hole.... and the game starts all over again.

If you are lucky you will make some good investments or land yourself a no bid contract along the way.
Together in Truth!

My guess is

they could not make this guy confess or stick to his story!

Contact your represenatives!

Even with charges dropped

will he remain in custody, as an 'enemy combatant'?

I'm becoming convinced..... each day passes, this is a bureaucratic war to an extent few realize! It's about justifying theses steps on paper. They don't care if they've strained every norm of morality and justice. If they can point to it on paper, then they've succeeded to a great degree? They don't care about the 20th hijacker or even Osama bin Laden as they are all props in a fantastic story.

...don't believe them!
