German born Turk Murat Kurnaz is a Guantanamo detainee. Just about everyone involved with his case agrees he was probably captured as result of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Americans wanted to release him in 2002 but neither the Turks nor the Germans would take him. While in detention Kurnaz appears to have transformed from a Taliaban sympathizer into a fully fledged Islamic radical who spends his free time reading the Koran and doing push-ups. Any country taking him now is taking on a problem waiting to happen.

The full fascinating story is here.
