Radio Free Europe quoted Amanullah:
"I want the responsible Afghan authorities to ask the United States why they detained me for so long, And they should tell me what my crime was. Otherwise, those [Afghans] who have turned me in should be held accountable. I haven't committed any crime. I have only waged jihad [against Soviet forces] for the freedom of Afghanistan. One of the enemies of jihad were the communists. There also may have been others making false allegations against me because of personal animosities."
