GITMO files says Casio wristwatch ‘the sign of al-Qaida’April 26th, 2011 - 3:01 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr. 26 (ANI): Guantánamo Bay interrogators regarded the Casio F-91W wristwatch as a sign of al-Qaida involvement.
According to The Guardian, documents leaked by the whistle blowing web site WikiLeaks, reveal that the interrogators saw it as cheap, basic and widely available around the world.
Analysts stationed at Guantánamo Bay saw the Casio F-91W digital watch as a contributing factor to the continued detention of prisoners.
Briefing documents used to train staff in assessing the threat level of new detainees advise that possession of the F-91W - available online for as little as four pounds - suggests the wearer has been trained in bomb making by al-Qaida in Afghanistan.
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. (ANI)
