    Former Gitmo detainees help al-Qaida grow in Yemen

    By MIKE MELIA and SARAH EL DEEB
    Associated Press Writers Dec 31, 2:20 PM EST

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - As a prisoner at Guantanamo, Said Ali al-Shihri said he wanted freedom so he could go home to Saudi Arabia and work at his family's furniture store.

    Instead, al-Shihri, who was released in 2007 under the Bush administration, is now deputy leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, a group that has claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day attempted bomb attack on a Detroit-bound airliner.

    His potential involvement in the terrorist plot has raised new opposition to releasing Guantanamo Bay inmates, complicating President Barack Obama's pledge to close the military prison in Cuba. It also highlights the challenge of identifying the hard-core militants as the administration decides what to do with the remaining 198 prisoners.

    Like other former Guantanamo detainees who have rejoined al-Qaida in Yemen, al-Shihri, 36, won his release despite jihadist credentials such as, in his case, urban warfare training in Afghanistan.

    He later goaded the United States, saying Guantanamo only strengthened his anti-American convictions.

    "By God, our imprisonment has only increased our persistence and adherence to our principles," he said in a speech when al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula formed in Yemen in January 2009. It was included in a propaganda film for the group.

    Of course the AP is going to Use this to Take a Shot @ (43) and Protect the guy they Voted for...

    What should be Discussed here is whether or not the Left Pushing the Bush Administration to Release or bring these Terrorists to the US was EVER a Good Idea... Now or then.

    It was the Left who was and Continues to Question the Detainment of these Terrorists and it's their Sympathy to them that has Led to MORE Terrorist Attacks, Attempted and otherwise.

    It's Mindblowing that they are either too Dishonest or Ignorant to Acknowledge it.

    :)

    peace...

    Yes... It does.

    Advocating for the Release of these Poor little Muslims from Gitmo is something the Left will have to come to Terms with at some Point.

    And yet the libs calls for the shutdown of Guantanamo Bay because of the so called “inhumane treatment.” Most of the detainees their received better treatment than some prisoners here and many of them return to the field after release. When will we wake up and realize that there is a reason we have set these prisons up and we still need them.

    The left never wanted them released. The want them to be tried and sentenced.

    mal continues to lie about everything to the point that I'm beginning to think he is an AQ plant.:eusa_eh:

    That's not true Ravi. The prisoners have been categorized according to their threat level and the possibility of prosecution. Certain detainees have been released (and will be released by Obama) because they cannot be tried. I believe there are over 300 prisoners still remaining. Gitmo is due to be closed 2011. Can they prosecute that many in a year? I don't think so. So many, many will be released by THIS administration. The infighting over military court vs civilian court is the reason this has dragged on so long. BOTH sides wanted them on trial, but BOTH sides could not agree on the venue. And I don't see why Chicago is any different than Cuba if the goal is to keep them locked up.
