The release of the other two men the USA called ShahzadaEdit
Abdul Matin testified that he learned that Guantanamo contained another captive who the Americans called Shahzada, who had already been released. In fact the USA called two other Guantanamo captives Shahzada, and they had released both of them. According to Commander Jeffrey Gordon, a DoD spokesman, the first Guantanamo captive the USA called Shahzada, whose real name was Mohammed Yusif Yaqub, was really an unrepentant Taliban commander, who returned to the battlefield in 2003, and was killed in combat on 7 May 2004. Gordan claimed Mohammed Yusif Yaqub really had been a Taliban commander all along, who had fooled American intelligence analysts into releasing him.
Combatant Status ReviewEdit
The Center for Constitutional Rights reports that all of the Afghans repatriated to Afghanistan from April 2007 were sent to Afghan custody in the American built and supervised wing of the Pul-e-Charkhi prison near Kabul.
