A really interesting story that is both heart-warming and depressing at the same time.
The guys were falsely detained for two years and have achieved some recognition in the UK since coming back as a documentary about them was shown last year.
Their back story is that they were in Pakistan/Afghanistan doing sight-seeing, charity work, and dope smoking and while they were in the mountains they basically got rounded up with some other random Arabs and stuck on a plane to Cuba. They were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
IIRC, they were made to confess to being present at some terrorist meeting after prolonged methods of torture, despite their being hard evidence they were working in an electronics shops in England at the time this was meant to have taken place. Their alibi was simply ignored it seems.
Their stories are responsible for much of what we now know went on there. I can understand why what happened, happened. There was so much anger at the time that a backlash was inevitable. And to be fair, the guys were also idiots to be in the mountains in 2002. The guards were just doing their jobs and doing what they thought was best to protect their country. I think it's really positive that they met up and seemed fair to each other. It brings some humanity back to it all.
