Free Jack Idema Blogburst

The Counter Terror Group has their own Free Jack store at Cafe Press. You can find several designs there, and there is certain to be one there to your liking. Buy one for yourself, and and a little t-shirt for your dog! This is sure to get Joe Cafasso's dander up; he wants to be the celebrity. He wants to be the special forces soldier! So pass this is on!

The situation for Jack is pretty much the same since the last time we blogged on this subject, except there was another attempt at 'getting' him out of there to the cell that awaits him at At Tawab Keef prison near the US Embassy in Kabul.

The United States Embassy in Kabul ordered the Afghans to continue holding them after their March 2005 "innocent" verdict. The Afghan Embassy in Washington, D.C. told the women in blue burkas who demonstrated for their release this past September 11th that their continued imprisonment was 'political' and that the American Embassy would be responsible for their release. But the American Embassy had all along been denying them water, denying them attorney-client privileged correspondence, denying them mail to and from their families, and denied them passports when they were requested over a year ago. The American Embassy is treating them as though they're not even citizens; and what's worse; not giving them what is due them according to the Constitution, the Geneva Conventions, and all the rest.

What's unfortunate is that Brent Bennett and Jack Idema are now 'men without a country'. And those of us involved in watching this story would like to see their passports issued to them, and their rights as citizens restored. All they did was pursue Gulbideen Hekmatyar and his followers, well-known terrorists who were attempting to assassinate some well-known figures in Massoud's United Front.

So we end this with a call to the American state department, the department of justice and the rest, to Free Jack Idema, and restore Brent Bennett's ability to return to the United States.

So what can we do? Well, anyone reading this with their own blog can sign up for the weekly Free Jack Idema Blogburst by emailing Cao or Rottweiler Puppy for details. I'd urge everyone to do this, as we're still terribly short on takers. If you want to know more about the story, Cao's Blog has a large section devoted to Jack Idema. There's also a timeline here, and, of course, a huge amount of information is available over at SuperPatriots, without whose work none of us would have learned about Jack's story.
