Ayub Marshid Salih is a Yemeni man who – according to calculations published by the SSCI – was held by the CIA for around a month (30-39 days). He was one of a number of suspects captured on 11 September 2002 in a series of raids in Karachi by Pakistani ISI officers, rangers and police officers, sparked by the capture the day before of another suspect, Ghulam Rabbani . After capture, Salih may have been held in Pakistani detention for a number of days before being transferred into CIA custody.
Given what is known about the duration of his CIA detention, Salih would have been transfered out of CIA control at some point 14-24 October 2002. DoD records show that he was held at the military detention site at Bagram Airbase (without giving at exact inbound date), and then transferred to Guantánamo Bay on 28 October 2002, where he remains.
