Summary "Moazzam Begg tells of his secret abduction by U.S. forces in Pakistan, his detainment at U.S. air bases for more than a year and at Guantánamo Bay for two more years as an enemy combatant. A British Muslim of Pakistani descent, Begg grew up in Birmingham, England and excelled at school before becoming involved with Islamic political causes and later moving to Afghanistan to become a teacher. After fighting broke out in Kabul, in 2001 he and his wife and children moved to Islamabad, where U.S. operatives seized him. In March 2004, Begg was released from Guantánamo under pressure from the British government, but over the objections of the Pentagon. Begg's memoir is a forcefully told, up-to-the-minute political story. Whether Begg is describing his Muslim and Asian friends fighting white supremacist skinhead street gangs in Birmingham, or telling how he shared poetry with a U.S. guard at Guantánamo Bay, his tone is assured. He is currently suing the U.S. government for his false imprisonment with the aid of his laweyr who helped secure his release, famed British lawyer Gareth Pierce."
