Skip to comments.WikiLeaks: Guantanamo detainee is now Libyan rebel leader (Obama just gave Libya to Al Qaeda)
Posted on 08/27/2011 5:09:11 AM PDT by tobyhill
In a newly disclosed file by WikiLeaks that was written in 2005, Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda Bin Qumu was identified as a probable member of Al Qaida and a member of the African Extremist Network.
The revelation will raise concerns about the range of factions fighting Gadaffi in Libya, some of whom have been associated with Al Qaeda.
Qumu was previously a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, but allegedly left the proscribed group in 1998 to join the Taliban.
In the report, US investigators classified Qumu as a medium to high risk because he was likely to pose a threat to the US, its interests and allies.
Qumu was imprisoned in Libya for ten years for alleged murder, physical assault, armed assault and distributing narcotics, but escaped in 1993 and fled to Afghanistan.

And this is a surprise to ... whom ?
One for the list ping!
Just pointing out the obvious because it appears some people have blinders on.
this can go in the “Blame Bush” file.....
no really....not sarcasm...he should have fought this like WW2 after 9/11....not Vietnam.
no quarter, no prisoners....destroyed mecca and medina vaporized tora bora....
...in other words he should have listened to Cheney.
I don’t think 0bama is a US patriot...I could be wrong...but everything I was taught in the 80’s about the evil Soviet Union and how Marxist insurgencies operate - seems to be his entire administration’s tactics on how they conduct business...
maybe I’m just over thinking this whole situation...
I wasn't criticizin' you.
Just damned frustrated at the conflict in my brain.
I've been alive for 63 years, at least half of those years were in a concious and aware state .. (No, it wasn't Massachusetts)
Anyway, though the testosterone wans as the years go by, the lessons and memories of how those lessons were learned have been part and parcel with my time as a father of three sons.
And I think EVERY man has used his growing years as a means of judging what to say or do with sons.
And we all learned real quick that big guys were ususally winners over little guys and that little guys needed help or an equalizer.
Now .. we're the united States of America, and no matter WHAT anyone else may say or think, we ARE the bigger guy.
So my mind is so conflicted with what I as an individual am and what my nation is acting like in front of the girls.
It's a damned shame and a sin for the toughest and most decent place on earth to be trampled by lesser examples of God's creative work.
If I ever find out I'm terminal ... y'all read about me doin' SOMEthin' drastic.
Some people think Obama is actually smart but I think he's dumber than a bag of rocks.
The Soviets have been busy installing their people in our Federal Government for the last 73 years. That’s SEVENTY-THREE YEARS.
Roosevelt ignored them, Truman covered for them and Congress turned on Senator Joe McCarthy for trying to warn us and destroyed him.
It’s a little late now.
We are supposed to believe this was a big victory for freedom.
Actually, according to the article you can literally blame Bush for this. It says that this guy was turned over to Libya in 2007.
“WikiLeaks: Guantanamo detainee is now Libyan rebel leader (Obama just gave Libya to Al Qaeda)”
Point of fact the Bush Administration was responsible for his release in 2007.
So maybe you should say Bush/Obama just gave Libya to AL Qaeda
I agree that Bush shouldn't have released him but if it wasn't this Al-qaeda guy then Obama would find another one to lead the “rebels”.
In the 80's Al-Qaeda was financed, trained, and armed by the US to attack the Russians.
In the 90's Al-Qaeda was financed, trained, and armed by the US to attack the Serbs.
In the 2010's Al-Qaeda was financed, trained, and armed by the US to attack the Libyans.
Are we noticing a pattern here people?
If he was know al Qaida then why was he released from Gitmo in 2007?
