Interviews with Guantanamo Detainees
"As best as they can tell Badr Zamen Badr and his brother were imprisoned in Guantanamo for three years for telling a joke. Actually, for telling two jokes. They ran a satire magazine in Pakistan that poked fun at corrupt clerics, sort of the Pashtu edition of the Onion. The first joke that got them in trouble was when they published a poem about a politician...He called them up, he threatened them, and as best as they can tell, he told authorities they were involved with al-Quaeda."
