    WASHINGTON – A Saudi militant who was released from Guantanamo Bay after six years of confinement is now a top figure in the Yemeni branch of al-Qaida, a U.S. counterterrorism official confirmed Friday.

    Said Ali al-Shihri was released in 2007 to the Saudi government for rehabilitation. He re-emerged this week, identified by a militant-leaning Web site as a top deputy in "al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula," a Yemeni offshoot of the terror group headed by Osama bin Laden.

    Is indefinite confinement still out of the question?

    If someone held me without charges for six years, I'd be pretty ticked off, too.

    If they had evidence, I think they should have tried him and convicted him so he never sees the light of day again.

    But not without charges... and not without evidence. I take habeas corpus pretty seriously.

    If he had ties with Al Quaeda before, why did the release him??????????

    Hold me for six years in a Chinese prison and torture me, I sure as hell would do the same thing.

    Let's get to the bottom line. Who is responsible for this total fuck up with these prisoners? Bush fucked up detaining them, now we need to kill them. What a buch of real Americans.:cuckoo:

    Also, funny that this guy is a frigging Saudi not an Iraqi or Afgahni?
