“Our colleague Sami Al Hajj, who was detained in Guantanamo for more than six years has been released. His plane has just landed in Khartoum airport. Like many others, Sami Al Hajj was never charged. His only crime was practicing journalism and telling the stories of the voiceless in Afghanistan and elsewhere that his captors – the US government – didn't want to be told,” writes Abdulrahman Warsame [1], from Doha, Qatar.
