Former al Qaeda operative freed, sent home to Qatar
Long War Journal ^ | January 20, 2015 | By David Weinberg

Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri, an admitted former al Qaeda operative, has been released from a American jail and permitted to return home to Qatar.

No formal statement has been released yet by either government, but it is being reported that al Marri's release was the result of a bilateral agreement between the Qatari and American governments. According to the US Bureau of Prisons, a prisoner with the same name and estimated age (ID number 12194-026) was freed on Friday.

Additionally, a source from al Marri's family told the Qatari press he was recently released and arrived in Doha Saturday. Soon afterwards, the story was confirmed by Agence France Presse (AFP), which spoke to al Marri's nephew.

This followed statements by two of his former attorneys that he was expected to be released within days. . .

The plea bargain accepted by al Marri acknowledged that his computer's search history included research on "various cyanide substances" according to "the method taught by al Qaeda for manufacturing cyanide gas," as well as research on "dams, waterways and tunnels in the United States, which is also consistent with al Qaeda attack planning regarding the use of cyanide gases". The plea deal also noted that "between 1998 and 2001" he "attended various training camps because he wished to engage in jihad".

Obama kept his word again:

‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’
