Did YouTube Video Help Free Gitmo Detainee?
"The power of the Internet, most people would agree, is awesome, but has it done what the federal courts may no longer have jurisdiction to do — helped to free a possibly innocent man held at Guantanamo Bay?
[T]he Department of Defense (DOD) informed the Office of Federal Public Defender in Portland, Ore., that three of its detainee clients were now "eligible for transfer," or, in more common parlance, eligible to leave the island prison.
One of those three is Adel Hamad, an enemy combatant and native of Sudan, whose life and legal case were the centerpiece of what one Internet expert describes as a "visionary" video filmed and posted on YouTube by his lawyers in the Federal Public Defender's office." [RJ]
