Shaker Aamer: Britain under pressure to track activities of released Guantanamo prisoner

Britain is under renewed pressure from the United States to track the activities of the final British resident to be released from Guantanamo Bay, as costs to the UK taxpayer spiral to at least £20 million.

The Telegraph understands high-level discussions have taken place between London and Washington over how the British security services will monitor potential threats posed by Shaker Aamer, who flew back to Britain on Friday.

    It is immoral to take £20 million from taxpayers to “track” war criminals. In cases such as these, the only Christ-centred solution is execution of the terrorist, for the holy benefit of all humanity. Don’t listen to the pope on this one, he doesn’t even know which holes things are supposed to go into and out of.

      Count on the Brits to find the most expensive and useless ‘solution’.

    No one should have gone to Guantanamo to begin with. We should have taken no prisoners.

    Release and then track?
    We are done.
