One of the revelations from the Guantanamo Bay document dump yesterday was that an Al Jazeera cameraman, Sami al-Hajj, was held at the Navy prison in Cuba for six years, in large part because the U.S. wanted intelligence about his employer.
al-Hajj was eventually freed, and went back to work for Al Jazeera. Following the release of the documents yesterday, he appeared on the network to explain how he was captured, and what happened in captivity.
