OK. I was skeptical about this when I first heard it. I have googled and googled. Plenty of reputable news outlets are presenting it as fact.
The lawyer for a man who was once a translator for Osama Bin Laden says his client, Muhammad Rahim, who is in prison at Guantanamo Bay, has two requests: he wants a cat for company and he wants LeBron James to apologize to Cleveland for leaving the city to play in Miami.
Really. The lawyer, Carlos Warner, who is from Akron, Ohio and may have influenced Rahim … anyway, he says it reflects his client’s tribal values, in which loyalty is paramount and “betrayals are not tolerated or forgiven, although an honest apology from an offending peer is valued.”
Now if he names the cat “Kobe“… then I will really have my doubts.
