Many Americans are unconcerned about these developments, because they believe only real terrorists are affected. In fact, the majority of "terrorist detainees" are innocent people sold to Americans as "terrorists" for bounties. Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says, "We have earned bounties totaling millions of dollars." Amnesty International's Claudio Cordone says of that organization's report released September 29, "Bounty hunters, including police officers and local people, have captured individuals of different nationalities, often apparently at random, and sold them into U.S. custody."
