Fayiz al Kandari, born 6/3/1975, is the lone Kuwaiti at Guantanamo currently facing a possible war crimes trial. Pentagon prosecutors allege he trained with al Qaeda and subsequently ''served as an advisor to Osama bin Laden'' and produced al Qaeda tapes that recruited men to jihad. His military defense lawyer says Kandari was a Muslim in Afghanistan at the wrong time and the military has built a case based on vague allegations and triple hearsay. His family says he went as a student to Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, to volunteer as a charity worker. He is wearing the prison camp garb of a compliant captive in this photo.
