    The Wide Awakes

    I am in L.A., so we get no snow on the ground here. Not so in Afghanistan, as we can see from
    this photograph, taken from inside
    the Pulacharke prison compound. The mountains, in particular, give a
    nice, Christmassy feel to the scene, as do the three or four inches of
    white stuff covering the ground.

    In fact, the only things that really spoil this vista are the
    watchtowers, the prison bars and the knowledge that, behind them, are
    three American patriots -- Special Forces soldier Jack Idema,
    his right-hand man, Brent
    Bennet
    , and journalist Ed Caraballo.

    Jack, Brent and Ed were originally sentenced to a decade in prison after
    a chaotic show trail in September 2004. Their judges were members of the
    Taliban regime who'd crept back into the new Afghan government. More
    worrying, perhaps, the bearded crazies were assisted by groups within
    the FBI and U.S. State Department, who disappeared evidence and
    collaborated with the men who tortured Jack, Brent and Ed. Since the
    trail, there have been numerous assassination attempts mounted against
    Idema and his men by the Taliban and al-Qaeda scumbags they are being
    held with.

    Most disturbing of all, however, is the fact that all three men were
    declared innocent after a retrial almost exactly a year ago. Now,
    granted, there are bound to be some differences between our legal
    systems and the one in Afghanistan, but we're pretty sure one thing they
    do have in common is the notion that locking up completely
    innocent
    people isn't acceptable ...

    ... So why are Jack and his men still incarcerated? For
    answers, we need to look at the way the War On Terror is actually
    playing out in Afghanistan, and to understand the extent to which many
    of the players in the FBI and U.S. State Department have edged away from
    killing and capturing Islamofascists, and back toward policies of
    appeasement and (false) stability. This has meant, at least for the
    State Department and the Karzai government, that men like Jack Idema
    became something of an inconvenience, hunting, arresting and killing the
    very terrorists they were foolishly attempting to broker deals with. In
    an effort to push their flawed agendas, then, sections of the U.S.
    government have seen to it that Idema and his men stay behind bars.

    In essence, this means that Jack Idema is a political prisoner,
    who, bizarrely, is being held by America in order to
    prevent him hunting down and killing the very people who
    masterminded 9/11.


    And, yes, you really do need to read that, last sentence over
    several times in order for its full implications to sink in. Four years
    after that terrible, September day, instead of bringing the sword of
    justice to the bearded crazies responsible for 3000 murders, we're
    bringing injustice to the men whose mission it is to hunt down
    the bin Ladens of this world and make them pay for what they did.

    And, make no mistake, this is exactly what Jack Idema intends to do.
    Here he is, in an interview he gave a couple of months ago, laying down
    the principles upon which the WOT should be fought:

    Americans now are saying let's have this peace and
    appeasement and all of this -- listen. Remember about this? People
    forget about the fact that people were diving out windows on 9/11 to
    avoid being burned to death. This is a war. War is a war of attrition
    --that means you kill the enemy. You don't make peace with
    them, you don't make nice with them, you don't take 'em in for a steak
    dinner-you kill 'em. And believe me–these people deserve to die. They
    are the worst terrorists on the face of the earth. Look what they did on
    9/11 and that is only one small part of what they want to do to
    us.


    [You can hear the whole thing here.]

    In the meantime, and while the head-hackers tuck into those steak
    dinners courtesy of the State Department, Jack Idema and his men are
    subjected to the petty malice of U.S. Consul Adrienne Harchick. Adrienne
    (or 'Addie' to the friends she doesn't deserve to have) has denied Jack
    and his men access to clean drinking water, refused to allow them to
    send hand-made gifts to their families back home, and even went so far
    as to seize 21 Christmas packages sent to Jack, Brent and Ed via regular
    Afghan post. Adrienne's lame excuse for this, last, piece of spite was
    that Christmas gifts 'violate the Muslim religion'. (This, even though
    Jack's many Muslim friends in the Northern Alliance have offered to
    deliver the presents to him themselves.)

    But. This intolerable situation might, finally, be coming to an end.
    Last week, the Northern Alliance-backed Yunis Qanooni took the reigns of
    power in the Afghan Parliament, and, unlike the appeasing weasel Karzai,
    intends to prosecute the war against terrorists hard. We must also hope
    that Qanooni resolves to release Jack and his men so they can help in
    this endeavour.

    Because here's the thing: someone like Jack Idema is doing no good
    looking at the Afghan mountains through the bars of a prison
    cell. He needs to be in those mountains, finishing the fight
    al-Qaeda started with us back in September, 2001.
