Betrayed for Bucks
Gitmo detainees say Pakistanis sold them to U.S. forces. Ok. And the problem is...? This isn't so much that the Pakistanis were taking advantage of a smart U.S. government plan to offer rewards for al-Qaida and Taliban forces as the judgement of the U.S. officers on the ground as to whether the captives were worth the reward.
It's interesting how ABC News wrote the head line. They make it seem like Muslims were sold to the Americans (i.e. Christians).
