Comments Enemy Combatant: My Imprisonment at Guantanamo, Bagram, And Kandahar

  1. A terrifying awakening to what the U.S government is doing to people worldwide If you believe that all lives of all people everywhere are just as good as American lives, you will want to read this book If you feel like torture and injustice could never occur at the hands of Americans, you should to read this book If you support a foreign policy of secret prisons, kangaroo courts, and detention centers, you must read this book, and take a walk in the shoes of an unjustly treated man, who happened [...]


  2. Since Moazzam Begg s was released from one of the toughest and the most notorious concentration camps in the world, Guantanamo Bay detention centre, I have been than curious to read about his experiences both within the Guantanamo Bay and what led to his unlawful detention I have read this book some months earlier and later again for the purpose of this review, and so that I can share the story of one of the most recognisable Muslim faces in Britain.This story is not about a gang related terror [...]


  3. well i read this book a while back and just started today to re read it I loved the book,it made me laugh and cry moazzam begg is a great narrator and i was never bored at any time during reading enemy combatant I like the way he ended the book the poem was emotional anyways basically you all gota read it to know how it really is D


  4. The author, either a pious bookseller and humanitarian or a supporter of al Qaida, depending on whom you ask, was abducted from his house in Islamabad and spent three years in the titular prisons Begg is, by other accounts, a reasonable and charming man, and was a model prisoner who got along with several of his guards His personality shows through in his prose, which is readable, clear, and impassioned without veering into needless vitriol though he does not bother to hide his disdain for Ameri [...]




  5. I picked this book up at a reading, by Moazzam Begg, in London Not only is Moazzam s story incredible, but as a man, both in person and in the book, he is thoughtful, intelligent, and kind, in spite of the immense brutality he suffered for three years I would highly recommend this book to anyone, it gives a unique opportunity to see what life is like for Guantanamo Bay prisoners, and the incredible lack of evidence that has landed many of them there.





  6. An extremely well written book filled with the details of a person who some regard as a terrorist even though that was never proven in any court of law I have a new appreciation for the Muslim people and the trials they must endure because of their religion A very, very well written book



  7. This is a very important book This book shows how little the American intelligence really knows about the Islamic movements He mentions that the FBI thought Tabligee Jammah Muslim version of missionaries were working with al Qaeda The truth is that they have two different ideologies and don t really get a long and tabigees don t believe in arm resistance they only work with the Muslims American need to understand that Muslims will always care about Palestine, Kashmir and other area s that are un [...]


  8. I enjoyed reading this book BUT I couldn t put his though process into acceptance he leaves the UK to go live in Afghanistan because it is the true Islam country Really true Islam is killing each other, true Islam is not contributing in the science of the world advancement How did this guy understand Islam like this is beyond me, and it does show he lacked education big time Page after page the Quran asks us to question and learn The life the prophet was full of moral out lines and it left every [...]



  9. This is an incredible prisoner memoir, written by a Brit who was abducted in the middle of the night from his family whilst in Pakistan, by American and Pakistani intelligence services He was held without charge for about 4 years, in the Middle East and Guantanamo Bay, describing in detail his treatment by the guards, interrogators, Americans and Brits His story is an amazing story, filled with heartbreak and despair, as well as hope and humour The writing is such that you immediately empathise [...]


  10. This one of those books that highlights the whole stupidity of the US response to the 11th of September attack on the World Trade Centre in New York Begg was swept up and transported first to Khandahar, then Bagram and finally Guantanamo, where he endured solitary confinement, endless interrogation and abuse.That being said, this book is really the story of one man s confrontation with himself Begg documents with painful detail his tribulations, for they were many, and his final determination to [...]


  11. This is an excellent, important book to read We so often get the government perspective of what goes on at the Guantanamo Bay dentention facilities This man was there for 2 years apparently unjustifiably and gives a very vivid account of what life is like there and also how impossibly difficult it is for prisoners to even know why they are being held and to communicate with anyone other than the prison guards.The beginning of the book is a little slow but it is worthwile and important in setting [...]


  12. A fascinating and disturbing look inside the early fear and paranoia which surrounded the post 9 11 period and the start of the war on terror Moazzam Begg and many others suffered greatly or were even killed unjustly in U.S detention Omar Khadr, Salim Hamdan and others make an appearance The story is uneven, at times captivating and at other times frustratingly filled with unnecessary detail and Begg s own extended reflections, attempts to educate others, and his poetry Still a timely read as ma [...]


  13. It makes my heart ache to read this book How can my country or any country hold someone without charge for years There can be no justification for it, and the only explanation is that the American government, at the highest levels, does not care about our values of freedom or justice.Moazzam quotes from Malcolm X in this book, and I ve included the quote here I m not anti America, and I didn t come here to condemn America I want to make that very clear I came here to tell the truth and if the tr [...]


  14. Wow, this book was a rollercoaster of emotions and an ocean of knowladge Its about a muslim man who was put into prison after prison For three years he was held, unable to speak to his family, not even given a lawyer until the end It is defiantly one of the best books i ve read Moazzam Begg is witty and intelligent, being in solitary confinement didnt harm him much It took me about two moths to read this book because I would sit and read one page over and over again He has a way with definately [...]


  15. A searing indictment of US foreign policy post September 11 by an individual kidnapped from his home in Islamabad and held by the US government for over three years as an enemy combatant Required reading, even if you believe that the War on Terror requires the suspension of civil rights, because what the government is asserting is that they can hold anyone, indefinitely and without trial That includes your spouse, your sibling, your parent, and you.


  16. Difficult to say I enjoyed this book, as reading very graphic descriptions of long term solitary confinement and torture was difficult at times But this is a very important book It is written very intelligently and sensitively and goes towards balancing the somewhat one sided perspective we tend to be exposed to with western media.






  17. This is is a firsthand account of a British Muslim s imprisonment in Afghanistan and then Guantanamo A young man s desire to explore his Pakistani heritage and to support the struggle of Muslim people against oppressive outsiders in Chechnya, Bosnia, Israel and Afghanistan, eventually get him arrested and accused of supporting or perhaps plotting terrorism, a charge he vehemently denies While his good guys are not mine he s a little easy on the Taliban, I would say his devastating account of his [...]



  18. I wanted a different perspective on the War on Terror, and after reading the reviews on this book, felt it would be a good chance to view the Muslim world from one of the captives at Guantanamo It was successful in that, but I found the author to be self serving and anti American No surprise, really, but I expected a intelligent and introspective look at these two cultures as a result of 9 11 I don t agree with the capture of innocent men, or the incarceration and torture of those captives, reg [...]
