Brother of senior al Qaeda leader (Ayman al-Zawahiri)released from Egyptian prison
cnn ^ | 3/18/2011 | Reza Sayah

Posted on 03/19/2011 3:18:02 PM PDT by tobyhill

Egypt's interim government has released the brother of Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's second in command, his lawyer told CNN on Friday.

Mohamed al-Zawahiri was released Thursday along with scores of other political prisoners after orders from Egypt's Interior Ministry, said Nizar Ghorab, who claimed al-Zawahiri was tortured in prison.

Al-Zawahiri had been in jail since 1999 after being detained and extradited from the United Arab Emirates on allegations that he was linked to the assassination of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. Al-Zawahiri was acquitted on the assassination charges but later was accused of conspiring against the Egyptian government.

Freedom! Democracy!.... all at work.

Did he get a commission on the UN’s human rights board so he can go and promote democracy with his brother?

If he can be tracked, this is probably a good thing, but considering the government we have in place, they are probably to stupid to think of it.

If I were in charge, I’d track him to his brother, then take them both out.

Instead we got Democrat lawyers in place to make sure we don’t hurt the feelings of terrorists.

Liberals are pure scum bags and will always choose the interests of the enemy over the United States.

I’ll bet he’s on his way to Libya and there is no tracking device on him.

It was sewn deep inside his scrotum. Muslims will never think to cut those off in order to find it.

He was apparently in prison for the crime of conspiring against the Mubarak dictatorship. The current government of Egypt exists because it consists of conspirators against the Mubarak dictatorship.

It would be hypocritical of them to keep him locked up on those grounds.

Of course, it will all end badly unless we have eyes on him.

I heard they knocked him out while he was asleep, and kept him asleep for two day and did a quick heal to cover our tracks.

I'm not really concerned with their hypocrisy, he's Al-Qaeda and should be locked up for the rest of his life.

Pushing and cheering for Mubbarak to be ousted was one of the most foolish foreign policy decisions ever. We were on the wrong side in Egypt. The guy was not perfect but he had been perfect for peace. We will regret it.

We should have supported the uprising in Iran if getting involved in Libya is in our national interests. Iran should have been a no-brainer. I have mixed feelings on Libya. I think the “rebel” leadership hates us too but perhaps the people will remember that we supported them and let’s hope we avoid civilian casualties.

By striking command and control assets I will not be surprised if we take Quackydaffy out via a bomb really quick. I hope that is the plan! The longer it drags out the worse it will be for us.

Thanks, Oorang. I didn’t know that Ayman had a brother, much less one in prison.

In a dramatic turn-around, despite his brief release from prison, Zawahiri reportedly now faces a 1998 death sentence imposed in absentia.
