This in itself seems just plain crazy.

According to leaked files the Casio F-91W, a cheap digital watch sold around the world, was regularly taken as evidence that detainees had bomb-making training!

According to the UK Gaurdian Newspaper Gaurdian

This worldwide bestseller is / was worn by "Approximately one-third of the JTF-GTMO detainees"

These models of watches have known connections to explosives, either having attended explosives training, having association with a facility where IEDs were made or where explosives training was given, or having association with a person identified as an explosives expert."

More than 50 detainee reports refer to the Casio timepieces. The records of 32 detainees refer to the black Casio F-91W, while a further 20 make reference to the silver version, the A-159W.

Surely the government wouldn't arrest and detain someone for simply wearing one of these watches would they?

BTW I searched to see if previously posted, nothing found but no doubt it has been already as we have such a great search tool.

Funny how Bin Laden wore the same watch. I guess the middle east really is stuck in the 80's with their technology.
