The letter is a very obvious demonstration of a troubled state of mind. This occurs in the wake of more than 800 mental health professionals eventually signing onto a petition that the House Judiciary Committee consider mental health aspects. The assertions Trump makes in the letter should alarm not only those who believe that the president of the United States and the commander of the most powerful military on earth should be mentally sound, but also those who are concerned about such a compromised individual’s influence on society.

At 72, Saifullah Paracha is Guantanamo Bay’s oldest detainee by some stretch.

A number of health problems could be expected to befall any man his age, let alone one who has spent the last 17 years in the notorious offshore U.S. military prison. He suffers from "debilitating chest pains," an "overactive bladder and enlarge[d] prostate," diabetes, coronary artery disease, diverticulosis, gout, psoriasis and arthritis, his lawyer, Shelby Sullivan-Bennis, told ABC News. He has also suffered two heart attacks, one of which occurred when he was held in Bagram, in Afghanistan, before his transfer to Guantanamo, according to his attorney. Paracha’s attorney said she was fearful for his life, given his complex medical needs. None of the 24 low-value detainees, including Paracha, have been charged with a crime. In total, there are 40 detainees left at Guantanamo (down from nearly 700 at the peak), ranging in age from their early 40s to early 70s, only nine of whom have been charged with a crime.
