Chronicling a seemingly unending struggle for redemption, this record documents the shockingly true story of the incarceration and torture of the wrongly accused Mamdouh Habib. Starting with his kidnapping by Pakistani security officers shortly after September 11, this biography charts this young Egyptian man’s experience as one of the many victims who was sent to Guantanamo Bay and branded as a terrorist with no legal rights. This account charts his original migration to Australia and discusses his marriage to Maha, a remarkable young woman who tirelessly fought for the release of her husband and the restitution of his name, and his relationship with other well-known, alleged terrorists, including his meetings with David Hicks both in Afghanistan and in Guantanamo. In addition to biographical information, Habib also fully expresses in his own words the complicity of the Australian government in his abduction as well as its subsequent neglect of him during his incarceration. Finally, this recollection ends with Habib's eventual release without charge from Guantanamo and his reunion with his family in Australia.
