An enemy combatant has been defined as "an individual who was part of or supporting the Taliban or al Qaida forces, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. This included any person who committed a belligerent act or has directly supported hostilities in aid of enemy armed forces."

a. The detainee is associated with al Qaida:
1. The detainee is a member of Jamaat al-Tabligh (JAT).
2. JAT, a Pakistan-based Islamic missionary organization is being used as a cover to mask travel and other activities of terrorists, including members of al Qaida.
3. The detainee was arrested with a stolen passport.
4. The detainee was arrested wearing women's clothing in order to get around Pakistani checkpoints.
5. The detainee's family and friends reportedly stated he was traveling to Afghanistan.

The Tribunal will endeavor to arrange for the presence of any reasonably available witnesses or evidence that the detainee desires to call or introduce to prove that he is not an enemy combatant. The Tribunal President will determine the reasonable availability of availability of evidence or witnesses.
