Default Ex-Guantanamo detainee now an al Qaeda leader in Yemen

Despite our President's rhetoric that Al Queda is on the run they recently released a video featuring their new leader in Yemen.

Quote:
Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released a new video featuring a former Guantanamo detainee, Ibrahim Qosi, who is also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani.

In July 2010, Qosi plead guilty to charges of conspiracy and material support for terrorism before a military commission. His plea was part of a deal in which he agreed to cooperate with prosecutors during his remaining time in US custody. Qosi was transferred to his home country of Sudan two years later, in July 2012.
That is right, the Obama administration that cannot screen Gitmo detainees so they ones they release don't return to terrorism is all puffed up over the idea of improving screening of Muslims wanting to come to the country.

Once again Obama's political promise takes precedence over US national security. With Democrats nothing is more important than being able to bray about Republicans keeping Gitmo open even at the cost of turning terrorists loose to begin killing again.

Quote:
Islamic scholars ensure the “correctness” of the “jihadist project,” according to Qosi. And the war against America continues through “individual jihad,” which al Qaeda encourages from abroad. Here, Qosi referred to al Qaeda’s policy of encouraging attacks by individual adherents and smaller terror cells. Indeed, AQAP’s video celebrates jihadists who have acted in accordance with this call, such as the Kouachi brothers, who struck Charlie Hebdo’s offices in Paris earlier this year. The Kouachi brothers’ operation was sponsored by AQAP.
But wait, Obama is not responsible despite the fact there was an assessment available that screamed don't release him.

Quote:
A leaked Joint Task Force Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO) threat assessment and other declassified files documented Qosi’s extensive al Qaeda dossier. In the threat assessment, dated Nov. 15, 2007, US intelligence analysts described Qosi as a “high” risk to the US and its allies.

“Detainee is an admitted veteran jihadist with combat experience beginning in 1990 and it is assessed he would engage in hostilities against US forces, if released,” JTF-GTMO found.
Oh well Gitmo is a recruiting tool even though there is no evidence to back up that claim just as there is no evidence a temporary ban on Muslims coming to the US would radicalize moderates. It is all about the partisan political theater Democrats can conduct.

Odds? It's like getting bitten by a rattlesnake, and you lock up the rattlesnake in a cage, get your bite treated, and afterward you let the snake run loose in your house because it probably learned not to bite you anymore.
