Terrorist “Detained But Ready To Mingle”

You have to be kidding me.

A detainee at Guantanamo Bay has set up an online dating profile saying he is “detained but ready to mingle,” according to his lawyer.

Muhammad Rahim al-Afghani, an Afghan who has been held by the CIA since 2007 and is classified as a “high-value” detainee, appears to have an account on the dating site Match.com.

In a letter to Carlos Warner, his lawyer, the man described by the United States government as a “close associate” of Osama bin Laden also expresses concern over the hacking of the adultery website Ashley Madison.

“This is terrible news about Ashley Madison, please remove my profile immediately!!!” Afghani wrote in a letter dated July 21. “I’ll stick with Match.com even though you say it is for old people. There is no way I can do Tinder in here.”

Al-Jazeera America reports that while Afghani does not actually have an Ashley Madison account, there is a Match.com profile set up in his name which is monitored by Warner.

In another letter, Afghani refers to the presidential candidate Donald Trump as an “idiot,” and refers to Trump’s comments that senator John McCain was not a war hero despite having been a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

While his Match.com profile has been removed, I imagine it went something like this:
