  1. Fahad al-Binali – I rename him Fluster Al-Binali. Well spoken Mike Diboll; you obviously know what is going on. Also well spoken Rodney Shakespeare. On Frank Gardner’s BBC report Khawaja DID say he was force fed! And the Danish ambassador was not allowed to visit for many days, neither was his lawyer.
