The Miami Herald reports an Iraqi prisoner who the United States has said reported to one of the Taliban released in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was charged with war crimes Wednesday calling him a senior al-Qaida terrorist. Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi, 53, got to Guantánamo in 2007 from CIA custody. Wednesday, he came to court and told the judge, Navy Capt. J. Kirk Waits, that he wanted a civilian attorney as well as his Pentagon-assigned military lawyers “because of what is going on in Afghanistan and Iraq,” according to a court-appointed Arabic-English linguist. Hadi’s charge sheet accuses him of classic war crimes punishable by life in prison — targeting medical workers and civilians as well as foreign troops in Afghanistan — of denying quarter, attacking protected property, using treachery or perfidy in a series of attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan between about 2003 and 2004.
