Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A very sad story. I wrote a diary over at dkos in March.I also got a letter to the editor published on the WaPo Op/Ed page.

The story never got traction in Germany. It is a shame.

thanks for the comment and writing a diary at dkos. Have there been other diaries about Murat Kurnaz? (The dkos search function has been down yesterday and is right now as well.)

I also read you letter to the editor, where you wrote about Kurnaz loosing his German residence permit. The court in Bremen ruled a week ago that the German authorities were wrong in removing his residence permit: Court Victory for Murat Kurnaz.

That link is from Dialog International, an outstanding English language blog on US-German relations, which has covered Murat Kurnaz extensively.

We at the Atlantic Review wrote about the struggle for the rule of law for the Guantanamo detainees, i.e. about the supreme court giving the detainees access to federal courts, then the administration and the Graham amendement against them...

So you are not alone.

Thanks for the diary.  The dKos search function has never worked well for me, but I get good results from searching through google.  Here are a few links I've found.
