Re: Va. teen detained in Kuwait on his way back to U.S.
Don't you think the authorities in Kuwait should be part of that lawsuit too?
Gulet Mohamed, 19, of Alexandria, Va., had been stuck in Kuwait for nearly a month because of his apparent placement on the U.S. government’s no-fly list. He says that when he was first detained, he was handcuffed, blindfolded beaten, whipped on his feet, and interrogated about his recent travels to Yemen and Somalia.
Earlier this week, lawyers for Mohamed with the Council on American-Islamic Relations sued Attorney General Eric Holder and other U.S. officials in federal court, seeking an order that would require the government to allow Mohamed’s return to the U.S.
