As of October 13, 2010, Haroon al Afghan has been held at Guantanamo for three years four months.
- "He commanded multiple HiG terrorist cells, conducted IED (improvised explosive device) attacks in Nangarhar province, and is assessed to have regular contact with senior Al-Qaeda and HiG leadership,"
- "He may have additional information with respect to ongoing Al-Qaeda operations, and may have information that is useful to us in thwarting future attacks."
- "Remember that Guantanamo serves a number of functions. One is its an intelligence center as well as a detention facility, and its a place where we have built the structure and capacity to try people for ... War crimes through the military commission process."
In late November 2008 the New York Times published a page summarizing the official documents from each captive. The New York Times stated that no further official records of his detention—no Combatant Status Review Tribunal had been published. They identified him as identified captive 10028.
