“I wouldn’t put too much faith in the 2007 release date.”

I would. If you remember, the courts told Bush to release them or try them. The Bush Administration was under tremendous pressure by the Courts and the Democrats to release prisoners and shut down Gitmo.

Holders law firm are the Mob Lawyers terrorists and drug cartel members.

Holder has a long history of getting terrorists sprung from jail including the dozen or so FMLN terrorists he got pardoned by Clinton who were jailed for murders committed during a series of bombings they carried out

This war needs to relegate Muslims to 8th century

It is rather ironic that in their daily lives and activities, they are in the 7th or 8th century. However, in their weaponry and related items, they are as up to date as many armies. They don't mind using cell phones, computers, and other modern instruments -- to make war.

What is Ansar al-Sharia?
by Matthew DeLuca Sep 12, 2012 7:50 PM EDT
The gunmen believed to have killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya are thought to be linked to a group called Ansar al-Sharia. The Daily Beast sorts out what we know.

“in Libya, including the shadowy Ansar al-Sharia in Darnah (ASD), led by former Guantanamo Bay inmate Abu Sufyan bin Qumu.””

. DARNAH, Libya — For more than five years, Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu was a prisoner at the Guantánamo Bay prison, judged “a probable member of Al Qaeda” by the analysts there. They concluded in a newly disclosed 2005 assessment that his release would represent a “medium to high risk, as he is likely to pose a threat to the U.S., its interests and allies.”

A Statement by the United States Government (April 25, 2011) Today, Mr. Qumu, 51, is a notable figure in the Libyan rebels’ fight to oust Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, reportedly a leader of a ragtag band of fighters known as the Darnah Brigade for his birthplace, this shabby port town of 100,000 people in northeast Libya. The former enemy and prisoner of the United States is now an ally of sorts, a remarkable turnabout resulting from shifting American policies rather than any obvious change in Mr. Qumu. “

OK, so the guy was Al Qaeda. He gets released from Gitmo and subsequently a Libyan jail, then once Obama is in power the US supports him and other Al Qaeda members in a revolt against Khadafi.

Now, having installed these guys in power, they attack and kill the US ambassador. The US ambassador wouldn’t have seen it coming since he too supported these guys.

Holder worked to get a bunch of these people released from Gitmo before he was AG, and he hired a bunch of the lawyers who worked on the same project to work for him at Justice. I wonder if this guy is one of the ones released by their efforts.

Watch and read the report here.

It is an absolutely astounding report!

It’s a sad state of affairs when senior Libyan government officials are more credible than White House spokesmen and US Ambassadors to the UN.

Yet, Islam has no ability to conceive or manufacture any of these instruments.

Since we all know the alphabet soup crowd isn't going to report any of this (may I be wrong), is something else going on? Possibly a distraction. Everyone knows zer0 and his crowd are useless on foreign affairs (anyone with any common sense). Am thinking the zer0 crowd and perhaps the media is looking to go back to the economy. The zer0 crowd knows they cannot win on foreign affairs, thus they and their lapdog media go back to the economy and zer0care and attempt to win. It will not work but am betting they are desperate. Cornered RATS do strange things.

That is exactly why they need be relegated to the 8th century. It isn't a difficult problem to solve. 1) destroy their electricity sources. 2) destroy their weapons. Number 1 takes care of a lot ... Cell phones, computers, communications, Internet, and even a safe water supply requires electricity. A nice accident blamed on Iran, say an EMP blast, is a very effective way to eliminate electricity. After that we can rely on Muslims to fight each other. Self genocide is a deserved punishment for evil.

From that thread, in the article:

Nonetheless, in 2007, he was sent from Guantánamo to Libya and released the next year in an amnesty for militants.

Although earlier in the article he states he is afraid and asks to be sent anywhere other than Libya.

Did he pull a brier-rabbit?

The date above is baffling. As is the reported amnesty in the prior article.

Bush released or “transferred” this guy after a lawsuit filed on behalf of Gitmo prisoners...by Eric Holder’s lawfirm.

And the government of Libya with whom the agreement was made has entirely changed since that time, thanks to Obama.
