The Miami Herald reports that the attorney for a former al Qaeda cook said
that the government did not deliver on a promise that led him to plead guilty to supporting terrorism, and predicted that might discourage other Guantánamo captives from reaching deals with prosecutors.
Ibrahim Ahmed Mahmoud al Qosi of Sudan, 50, was removed from a communal-living compound over the weekend, and placed in more isolated confinement, despite a recommendation in the plea agreement that he stay, a Pentagon official said.
His defense attorney, Navy Cmdr. Suzanne Lachelier, said the move could make other detainees reluctant to accept plea deals.
