Sudanese war criminal at Guantánamo turns government witness

On February 19, 2011, The Miami Herald reports, in an article entitled "Sudanese War Criminal at Guantanamo Turns Government Witness," that Noor Uthman Mohammed, a Sudanese former terror camp instructor, was sentenced Friday to 14 more years at  Guantánamo.

Mohammed agreed to a plea deal that will reduce his sentence to 34 months in return for serving as a government witness. He pled guilty last Tuesday to conspiracy and providing material support for terror for his role as a ’90s-era weapons instructor at an Afghan training camp then holed up in the company of terrorists at a safe house in Pakistan after 9/11.
