The Telegraph reported:
The FBI most wanted mugshot shows a tough, swarthy figure, his hair in a jailbird crew-cut. The $10 million price on his head, meanwhile, suggests that whoever released him from US custody four years ago may now be regretting it
Well-organised and utterly ruthless, the ex-preacher is the driving force behind al-Qaedas resurgence throughout Syria and Iraq, putting it at the forefront of the war to topple President Bashar al-Assad and starting a fresh campaign of mayhem against the Western-backed government in Baghdad.
On Tuesday, his forces achieved their biggest coup in Iraq to date, seizing control of government buildings in Mosul, the countrys third biggest city. Coming on top of similar operations in January that planted the black jihadi flag in the towns of Fallujah and Ramadi, it gives al-Qaeda control of large swathes of the north and west of the country, and poses the biggest security crisis since the US pull-out two years ago
This guy was a Salafi (a follower of a fundamentalist brand of Islam), and Saddams regime would have kept a close eye on him, said Dr Michael Knights, an Iraq expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
He was also in Camp Bucca for several years, which suggests he was already considered a serious threat when he went in there.
That theory seems backed by US intelligence reports from 2005, which describe him as al-Qaedas point man in Qaim, a fly-blown town in Iraqs western desert.
Abu Duaa was connected to the intimidation, torture and murder of local civilians in Qaim, says a Pentagon document. He would kidnap individuals or entire families, accuse them, pronounce sentence and then publicly execute them.
Why such a ferocious individual was deemed fit for release in 2009 is not known.

My, but those chickens sure do come home to roost.
there should be no releases , only executions
I feel like Charlton Heston in the “Planet of the Apes” movie: “It’s a mad house....a mad house”. Obama’s America.”
The zero wanted some of that a$$.
I have been in the Twilight Zone since 2007
When everyone was gaga over this evil man. Even my 9 year old at the time said her stomach hurt when she saw him smile.
There’s too many scandals on the go at the moment. Not enough time and energy for another abomination, compliments of Obama, enemy of America.
All by design. While Democrats call us racists for wanting tax cuts, they pass gay marriage while we're distracted.
Then they call us Nazi monsters for wanting border security, while passing huge spending bills while we're distracted.
Rinse and repeat. I wish the GOP would catch on.
You mean nobody knows who arranged to release him? That must be a very short chain of responsibility.
Can't be that hard to find out. Aren't all department, subdepartments, etc, of the executive branch have to keep records and divulge those records when lawfully required?
We need to pass a law requiring jail time for hiding information purely for political purposes. Like the VA did and continues doing.
Committing crimes under color of authority is punishable for everyone; yes, even the First Moron!
Caller to the Dom Giordano radio show in Philly this morning was the mother of a man serving in Afghanistan - says he told her attacks on our troops there have doubled since Obama released the five terrorists last week - the act has apparently invigorated and spurred the Taliban on to more intense fighting, and soldiers in the field are “afraid for their lives” - and I’m beginning to feel a little insecure here at home too......
I can think of a couple of reasons. They released commanders from custody to go and overthrow Khadafi. They recruited Al Qaeda jihadists to go overthrow Assad. And now they are going after Maliki.
First, Obama doesn't see jihadists as his enemy. They might be America's enemy, but not his. Secondly, they seem to have made the calculation that the best way to handle Al Qaeda is to turn them, recruit them, arm and train them, and send them against our enemies. Or the enemies of the Saudis, whatever.
So while there is no appetite in the US for another war, you can get things done using proxies. That these proxies hate us just makes it all the more delicious as they do our bidding (or the Saudis' bidding) without realizing it.
I think this is how certain sectors of the government view it. And the ones who aren't in the know don't need to be in the know.
I just note that one of the first things Obama did was withdraw his support from Maliki. And now an army of jihadis is knocking at his door.
Lord have mercy!
That’s just great. Thanks, Obama.
