At the time of his arrest when suspicion was running high he only put himself in danger by traveling to Pakistan and Afghanistan on a false passport with the feeble excuse that he always wanted to visit a Muslim country. If that was his only reason for traveling he could have picked a better time and done it legally which would have saved him all the hassle so, in that respect I have less sympathy for him.
If he is genuinely innocent I do feel for him being so stupid as not to realise the situation he was getting himself into but true to form Britain is going to reward him for his stupidity by giving him generous financial benefits.
These people are quick to jump on the bandwagon when it comes to the generosity of the British government, but are quick to condemn them. They also seem to always be safe in the knowledge that the British taxpayer will cough up the money whether they are innocent or not. It is a pity the government is not so free with our money when it comes to our pensioners who are the poorest in Europe, probably because our money is paid out to the law breakers without any thought for them. Binyam Mohamed broke the law by traveling on a false passport and O.K. if he is innocent of terrorism did not deserve to go to Guantanamo Bay, but he also does not deserve financial reward for his stupidity.
Pensioners take note of easy ways to boost your pension BREAK THE LAW that's the message from the British government!
