Syria releases the 7/7 'mastermindí
Telegraph ^ | 04 Feb 2012 | Jason Lewis

Posted on 02/05/2012 10:19:12 PM PST by george76

terrorist mastermind behind the July 7 London bombings is reported to have been freed from a Syrian jail by President Bashar Assad's regime.

Abu Musab al-Suri had been held in Syria for six years after being captured by the CIA in 2005 and transported to the country of his birth under its controversial extraordinary rendition programme.

But he is now said to have been released as a warning to the US and Britain about the consequences of turning their backs on President al-Assad’s regime as it tries to contain the uprising in the country.

Al-Suri, also known as Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, was al-Qaeda’s operations chief in Europe and has been accused of planning the London bombings, in which four British-born terrorists detonated three bombs on the Underground and another on a bus, killing 52 people and injuring more than 700 others in 2005.

...

A mechanical engineer, he is also wanted in Spain in connection with the Madrid train bombings in 2004, which left 191 dead, and for links to an attack on the Paris Metro in 1995.

A drone missile strike on him seems appropriate. Give him a “7/7” back and see if he gets 72 virgins as promised by false prophet mad mo.

Oh wait, that will upset Russia and China.

Either way, Syria is falling apart. I don’t see how it could ever be normal again with Assad at the helm.

Hang on to your hats folks. Here we go again.

Better save some food and water.

Oh wait, that makes that liberal dude Janet mad.

This does not make sense. He is our enemy, he releases a murderer, and he wants our help?

Well, technically Scotland I think but yeah GB was involved. Unbelievable either of these guys, if they were indeed the right guys, were still around afterwards.
