this is extremely fascinating. This guy's father was involved with Bin Laden and Khadr says he personally knew him. It amazing how we pick our
enemies and friends.
A Canadian man recently released from Guantanamo Bay in Cuba has been telling the BBC how he worked there undercover for the CIA.
Abdurahman Khadr, the son of alleged former senior al-Qaeda member Ahmed Said, is now back in his native Canada.
He was initially detained in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taleban, and was first interviewed by British forces.
He told BBC World Service's Outlook programme he was subsequently held in a "series of jails" before agreeing to work with the CIA.
He says the CIA initially planned to send him to Pakistan.
"That didn't work out, and they decided to send me to Cuba to work for them there."
The BBC asked the CIA for its reaction to Mr Khadr's comments but it said it would not comment on such matters.
Mr Khadr said he was handed over to the American troops on 12 March, 2003.
"They put me next to people which were stubborn and wouldn't talk to them, and try to talk these people into saying stuff to me," he said.
You know that you cannot go anywhere and you are totally under the control of the person that's interrogating you
"Then I would tell it to the CIA."
