The detainee decided to go on Jihad after becoming angered over the U.S. air attacks in Afghanistan. He felt it was his duty as a Muslim.


The following primary factors favor release or transfer:


The detainee said never heard of al Qaida until after the 11 September 2001 attacks. He is only aware of the attacks on the World Trade Center;he believes the attacks were wrong, because Islam teaches that it is wrong to kill innocent women and children. He does not know anyone that is a member of al Qaida.


Detainee perceived Bin Laden as one of the Muslim people, who may have been right or may have been wrong as a human being. Detainee also felt that Bin Laden made many mistakes, such as the events of 11 September 2001, which cost the lives of many innocent people.
