leader Shaikh Salah Fuad Ubaid. Ubaid posited that the US
Army abused Arab prisoners at GTMO because President Bush
waged war against Arabs and the Muslim world. On the same
day, independent newspaper "Al Wasat" reported that Bahrain
Human Rights Society Deputy Secretary General Salman Kamal
Al-Din questioned the credibility of the torture. He noted
that a GOB security delegation recently visited Guantanamo
and confirmed that the detainees were in good physical and
mental condition.
