In one of the most bizarre stories to come out of Guantanamo Bay, it was revealed that a lawyer for an al-Qaeda prisoner at Gitmo yesterday disclosed a secret so explosive, it could rock the very foundation of the NBA: His client thinks LeBron James is a “very bad man’’ for defecting from Cleveland to Miami.
As reported by the NY Post:
Military defense lawyer Kevin Bogucki — noting that Muhammed Rahim’s opinion of the hoops star was treated as top secret for two months — said the prisoner wrote a note criticizing the star’s decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat in 2010.
“LeBron James is a very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland,” Bogucki quoted the note as saying.
He did not say who got the note.
“It took that classification authority approximately two months to determine that my client’s opinion of LeBron James did not pose a grievous threat to national security,” said Bogucki, who did not indicate when the note was written.
Here’s the thing, Rahim has not been charged with a crime, but because he was interrogated by the CIA, everything he says or writes is presumed to be “Top Secret” unless a government Security Classification Review Team declares it’s safe to release.
We guess he’s a huge basketball fan?
