Bin Laden Translator Says James Bad Guy

A former translator for the late al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden says Ohio native LeBron James is "a very bad man." Muhammed Rahim is being held at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. In a recently declassified letter to his attorney, Rahim wrote that James needs to "apologize to the city of Cleveland" for leaving the NBA's Cavaliers for the Miami Heat. Attorney Carlos Warner says the letter reflects Afghan tribal values of loyalty and that an honest apology is often valued.  

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
