Sana'a: A Yemeni national who was released from the US Guantanamo Bay prison has vowed to continue jihad "as long as he lives".
In his first interview after his release from prison on October 12, Sadeq Mohammad Saeed said he did not know why he was arrested in the first place, and why he was released.
Saeed spoke concisely focusing on what he called a "letter to the Americans and the world". Saeed said he and his companions were engaged in "jihad" since they left homes and families and would continue doing so as long as they live.
"I travelled to Pakistan and from there to Afghanistan and then I joined one of the Taliban battlelines," he said.
One of Saeed's brothers, who was a jihadist in Afghanistan, later said all the young people who went for jihad in Afghanistan will continue to pursue that goal until they achieve justice and victory.
"Let the Americans know that jihadists are respected in their nations and they are not killers or criminals," Rashad Mohammad Saeed, the brother, said.
Rashad Mohammad exhorted Muslims to rise in revolt against the Bush administration which spends billions of dollars to destroy Taliban and Al Qaida. "These attempts are only making the Taliban and Al Qaida stronger and stronger."
