Guantanamo ex-commander rejects charges about torment by U.S. guards

FORT MEADE- Accusations that Guantanamo Bay guards tormented a suspected Sept. 11 plotter are not credible, a former prison commander testified during a pre-trial hearing on Friday. Yemeni defendant Ramzi Bin al Shibh has said that electronic devices hidden inside the walls of his cell at the US Navy base in Cuba produced tremors and banging noises, disrupting his sleep for years. A detainee from Somalia, Guleed Hassan Ahmed, took the stand at the hearing on Thursday to echo Bin al Shibh’s complaints.
