The GeneralIt s hard to know where to begin with this It reads like something from a third world country or to begin with this It reads like something from a third world country or dictatorship but no almost unbelievably this is the behaviour of a so called democracy the land of the free I think it s fair to say that the author s resence in Afghanistan at the time of invasion was dubious at best AND CLEARLY DUMB AND NA VE AND IS CERTAINLY clearly dumb and na ve and is certainly to justify reasonable suspicion as it wasn t the act I guess seeing is no longer believing Great book With an introduction by Gillian Slovo The General tells the story of an innocent Moroccan captured in Pakistan and flown to Guantanamo Bay for a 5 year imprisonment involving officially sanctioned degradation and torture The story is beautifully told and well tra This is reuired reading The author s tale of torture is a facet of the War on Terror that everyone must at least know Whether you agree with the war or not you have to know what actions are conseuences of your osition For hawks that means reading this bookThe detail of the struggles that Errachidi goes through at Bagram Kandahar Guantanamo Bay is so vivid you end up forcing yourself to The Princess and the Three Knights put it down to ensure you don t get as wound up as he is You will initially get very angry with the treatment of theserisoners Just remember that if they weren t innocent would you be this angry That s a The Beauty of Believing point often made by hawks that doves do not respectThe struggles he went through also weave will with the times that he tries to find hope and the times he tries to scheme to make life better for those who share his struggle As a result you are seeing the torture of humans not just the list of grievances ofrisoners That s where I choked up the mo.

Review The General

,
St when he describes his empathy for the hunger strikers or how he tells stories of great feasts to his cellmatesThere is robably a dual book to this one that describes dual book to this one that describes he tells stories of great feasts to his cellmatesThere is Forbidden Love Unchained probably a dual book to this one that describes how helped get bin Laden But for now this book haslanted me firmly on one side of the interrogation debate This book should come with a cautionary note attached If you want to keep on believing in a free and just West than you are better off not reading this very moving tale How someone as innocent as this author undergo such heinous and demeaning treatment by the all mighty United State of America is a very bitter Ghetto Resume part 1 pill to swallow Indeed this makes Osama Bin Ladin a most merciful dispatcher in comparison I once read a book which was eventually made into a movie as well called The men who stare at goats by Jon Ronson which seemed like complete fantasy stuff with Pentagon funding hugerojects in Mostly Mama phys opsrojects designed to overcome enemies by The Naked Man playing heavy metal music sleep deprivation water boarding etc The full extent of which can be read in this very lucid tale of Ahmed s incarceration Why the might US and British intelligence agencies not able to find out Ahmed s innocence early through his ordeal isroof for me that these Arabs and Muslims were there as an example What they signified to the US is beyond my comprehension though were they meant to send a message to the Muslim fundamentalists or their Western sympathizing heads of state What especially moved me were the tales of torture by ordinary American soldiers doctors lawyers who willingly and Damias Children passionately cooperative in the daily routines ofrisoner torturing As a Muslim reader I was thrilled with the very noble reaction and Diplomatic lounge at Islamabad airport and spent five and a half years in Guantanamo There he was beaten tortured humiliated very nearly destroyedBut Ahmed did not give in This very ordinary Moroccan born London chef became a leader of men Known by the authorities as The General he devised rotests and resistance by any mea. ,

Ightback by the brother Muslims in the face of such a determined and all owerful adversary Ahmed and his fellow risoners are not only wonderful ambassadors for Islam but for the spirit of humanness as well How they managed to deal with the constant for the spirit of humanness as well How they managed to deal with the constant is indeed a great testament of the human spirit s determination and adaptability Actually the vicious treatment displayed by American soldiers is an exact opposite signifying the dredge of human beings So Gitmo seemed to have opposite effects Bush s good guys turned out to be evil and his evil eople turned out to be goodAs a Pakistani I felt very ashamed at the way Arabs were maltreated in my country during the USA bombing of Afghanistan It fully explains the strange comments I received upon finding out that I belonged to Pakistan when I went to Tangier as a tourist last year I would highly recommend this book to all so that the real dangers which ropaganda can induce even in a democratic countries like USA and UK The book is summed up retty well when Ahmed makes a straight inference to summed up retty well when Ahmed makes a straight inference to Bush s speech and the same sort of comments made by Ahmed s interrogator s and soldiers in Gitmo which again shows how much an impact a leader can make in even free democratic societies like USA For me the real lesson to take away is always foster a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to media and government narrative Its not always easy to do so but till we know it comes to media and government narrative Its not always easy to do so but till we know sure we should not give government and media the benefit of doubt automaticallyDemocracy died a death for me after reading this very touching story It needs to be reincarnated again and Gitmo needs to be converted into a tourist site like Auschwitz. Ns ossible As a result he spent most of his time in solitary confinement But then after all those years Ahmed was freed his innocence admittedThis is Ahmeds story It will make you rethink what it means to be in the wrong lace at the wrong time It will also make you look anew at courage survival justice and the War on Terro. .
