An Iraqi court has rejected a request to send a Hezbollah commander to the United States for trial. Ali Mussa Daqduq, a Lebanese militant, has been held in Iraq for the 2007 killings of five American soldiers, four of whom were captured, tortured and shot execution-style. But now the Iraqi central criminal court has ordered that Daqduq be freed immediately. The Court stated:
It is not possible to hand [Daqduq] over because the charges were dropped in the same case. Therefore, the court decided to reject the request to hand [him] over to the U.S. judiciary authorities, and to release him immediately.
As Alana Goodman points out, Daqduq was in U.S. custody in Iraq and could have been transferred to Guantanamo Bay. But despite our governments belief, set forth in the extradition request, that Daqduq is a top threat to Americans in the Middle East, President Obama refused to send him to Gitmo. Instead, the Obama administration decided to let an Iraqi court try him. As a result, barring a reversal of the courts decision, Daqduq will be freed.
Sen. Jeff Sessions says he pleaded with the administration not to allow Duqduqs fate to be decided by the Iraqis. Unfortunately, Obama was unmoved. So now we face the prospect that this killer of Americans, who presents a clear risk of further killing, will not receive justice and will soon be back in the terrorism racket.

You right wing nuts need to realize that the Iraqis are still our friends ... and Gitmo is already overloaded with my fellow Muzzies who need to be freed ... and American soldiers are expendable ...
If my friend Joe Gahootinbollock were President he would have someone waiting for Ali Mussa Daqduq onhis release.
Ali would get his 72 virgins that very day.
No mystery from this administration.....
This monster deserves some “personal attention” upon his release. Do we have Rent-a-Drones?
Brings new meaning to “take no prisoners”...
