Free Sami Al-Haj
American Committee to Free Sami Al-Haj

Sami, who is a Sudanese citizen, has not been charged with any crime. According to his lawyer, the military's interrogations of Sami have focused almost entirely on obtaining intelligence on Al Jazeera and its staff. All the known evidence suggests that Sami's incarceration is part of an ongoing U.S. campaign to punish Al Jazeera for its critical coverage of the Bush Administration and its wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This campaign makes a mockery of U.S. claims to support democratic principles of freedom of expression and freedom of the press throughout the world.
We demand the immediate release of Sami Al-Haj from Guantanamo and his safe return to Sudan.
We also request that Congress investigate possible violations of U.S. and international law by the Bush Administration in its campaign against Al Jazeera, including the six-year incarceration of Sami Al-Haj.
