WikiLeaks exposes Canadian detainee mystery

 

U.S. diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks have exposed a troubling case of a mentally ill Canadian-Egyptian detained in the U.S.-controlled Afghanistan’s prison for more than 18 months.

Khaled Abdallah Samy Ismail, an Egyptian-born engineer who was captured in April 2006 and detained at the detention center at Bagram Theater, where he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, say the cable.

The U.S. military gave Ismail at Bagram – a prison called the “other Guantanamo” – at least until October 2007 and exiled him often segregated “largely circumstantial”, despite the evidence against him, while they discussed whether they send him to Egypt or Canada. Ismail is the only Canadian known to be held at Bagram for as long.
