An affidavit that was unsealed this week details the complaints laid out by accused al Qaeda operative Abu Anas al-Liby, who was captured by U.S. Army Delta Forces outside his home in Tripoli in October 2013. Al-Liby is accused of planning the 1998 attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa and will face criminal charges in civilian court in New York.

Among his chief complaints against his captors, al-Liby says, “They gave me a blanket to sleep on, and a blanket as a pillow and a blanket to cover me. That was all. I was cold all the time. … The light was kept on all of the time, every day, for 24 hours with no let up. This made it all but impossible to sleep and rest.”

Rough life for an alleged terrorist.
