Alleged terrorist Shaker Aamer cites NH motto in appeal for trial
"Itís hardly a novel idea. I lived in America many years ago, and I remember the motto on the New Hampshire licence plate: Live Free or Die. I may have to die. I hope not, because I want to see my wife and family again. But the Americans should understand what it means to fight for liberty. They began their revolution with the "shot that was heard around the world" on 19 April, 1775. Some lackey to King George III doubtless labelled them the "worst of the worst", for they were the terrorists then. If demanding a fair trial makes me a terrorist, then we are all terrorists now, and on that anniversary, we celebrate our own revolt."
