A MUSLIM CHAPLAIN, WRONGLY ACCUSED OF SPYING, TELLS ABOUT HIS ORDEAL

11/16/06

An interview with U.S. Army Chaplain James Yee. Yee served at Guantánamo Bay before being wrongly accused of treason, imprisoned and later honorably discharged from the armed forces. Yee spent 76 days in solitary confinement but was ultimately exonerated. In 2004, the government dropped all charges against him and in October 2005, James Yee wrote a book about his experience called, “For God and Country: Faith and Patriotism Under Fire.� In the book Yee charges that he was targeted because of his Muslim faith. Yee will be speaking tonight at 7 at USF in Tampa ( WHERE: The Marshall Center Ballroom, 2nd Floor University of South Florida, Tampa Campus Near E. Fletcher Ave. & N. Palm Ave.)
