GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba (Reuters) - An al Qaeda suspect told a U.S. military tribunal that he had fought against the United States and said on Thursday he was willing to spend the rest of his life in prison as a "matter of honor."
"I came here to tell you I did what I did and I'm willing to pay the price, no matter how many years you sentence me," said Ghassan Abdullah al Sharbi, a U.S.-educated Saudi who allegedly met al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden at a training camp in Afghanistan months before the September 11 attacks.
"Even if I spend hundreds of years in jail, that would be a matter of honor to me," he said.
Well he's honored to be there. You can't question that. Arrogant aint he, after spending a couple of years in that hell hole, guess he needs to be taught a lesson. Until he feels that honor aint so important to him anymore for his organization.

Why is it that US educated Saudis always seem to be the ones facing off against the United States? I think its strange: go to the US and get a decent education then start a jihad against the country that educated you.
And its always saudis...........supposed key allies on the war against terror.
There was an incident where a Terrorist! was receiving US education! They can probably even get our government to pay for it for them .
