The Last UK Prisoner of Guantanamo Bay has been released. Shaker Aamer who is the last Resident in Guantanamo Bay has landed in the United Kingdom after being detained for 13 years.
This is one of those good news stories where some people will celebrate and other will hate. This is one of those stories where people will demonise other people.
This is human nature.
I for one am glad that he is free. He seems to be one of those dozens of people who have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Let’s be honest there have been many of them by the looks of it.

The fact the Americans have built this place is one of the most horrendous parts of 21st century history. After all the stories I’ve read and heard over the last few years I’ve been surprised that the Americans have been able to get away with this kind of thing.
The last British Prisoner to be detained at Guantanamo Bay has landed in the United Kingdom. The fact that we have had this story has said something about American and the way they treat prisoners.
