Obama Frees al Qaeda’s MOST SKILLED BOMB EXPERT from GITMO

Who is Obama going to set free tomorrow, 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Muhammad? Don’t kid yourself — that’s coming.

Today the Obama administration eased visa rules for would-be jihadis who want to visit terror hotspots in the Middle East and Africa. That’s not all. His regime created Iran carve-out for visas. Recent congressional efforts to tighten gaps in the U.S. visa waiver program were blocked by the Obama administration out of fear the counter-terror effort would upset Iran, which opposes the reform to the visa process.

“Obama releases al Qaeda’s most skilled explosives expert,”By Rowan Scarborough – The Washington Times – Thursday, January 21, 2016

The Obama administration has released one of al Qaeda’s most skilled explosives experts, a man personally praised by Osama bin Laden and who created the shoe-bomb design that was used unsuccessfully to bring down an airliner in 2001.

The Pentagon said on Thursday that Egyptian Tariq Mahmoud Ahmed Al Sawah, who may have known of the September 11, 2001 plot, was transferred from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay to the government of Bosnia.

Al Sawah fought with the Bosnia army in the early 1990s and eventually made his way to Afghanistan in 2000.

Like other members of al Qaeda, al-Sawah began his terrorism career as a member of the secretive Muslim Brotherhood, which is present in the U.S.

Al Sawah’s Guantanamo file reveals a number of chronic medical problems in 2008, when secret profile was created by Joint Task Force Guantanamo. Now, 58, he was listed as “morbidly obese,” and suffered at the time from diabetes, fatty liver disease and chronic pain from spinal cord compression. Prison doctors urged him to get more exercise.

In his terrorism career, he was close to bin Laden and tough classes in explosives at the al Qaeda leader’s Tarnak Farms training camp.

In Afghanistan, al-Sawah developed a mine to sink U.S. ships and the shoe-bomb prototype that Richard Reid attempted to ignite while on a flight from Paris to Miami in December 2001.

“Detainee also associated with the planners and perpetrators of international terrorist attacks and other senior al-Qaida members, and may have had advanced knowledge of the 11 September 2001 attacks,” states his secret file, which was published by Wikileaks along with hundred of other Gitmo dossiers. “Detainee participated in hostilities against U.S. and Coalition forces, and is a veteran extremist combatant.”

Joint Task Force Guantanamo judged al-Sawah to be a “medium” risk to U.S. troops and recommended him for transfer.

The publicized file may prove a problem for al-Sawah on the outside. He became an “exceptional” intelligence source, his file says, which could cause a terrorist to seek revenge.

“He has been compliant over the last four years,” the file says. “He continues to be a highly prolific source and has provided invaluable intelligence regarding explosives, al-Qaida, affiliated entities and their activities. If released, detainee will possibly reestablish extremist associations, but is unlikely to do so as his cooperation with the U.S. government may serve to identify detainee as a target for revenge by those associates.”

His released brings the prison population, once at over 700, to 92, including Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed.

President Obama plans to close the prison and bring who is ever left at Gitmo to an American prison.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, says Mr. Obama would be violating federal law which prohibits the action.

    So Mr. Ryan when are you going to bring him up on treason charges…we all know this isn’t his first flipping act of treason…get your asses doing the job your paid to do!

    • gfitzz53

      1st the House has to bring charges against him (Impeachment), then the Senate has put him on trial. If he is convicted by the Senate, he is removed from office. That’s the part that has never happened in the US. The Senate acquitted Clinton, for example. that’s why Clinton stayed in office after being “impeached”

    During the past 6 months I’ve read opinions by retired Generals and Admirals who believe that Obama is a traitor and a threat to the country. This is a very strong belief from Men who owe their allegiance to the Constitution, Republic and American People. Those three are constants. Yes, The President is the Commander in Chief while he/she is President but the person occupying the Oval Office changes overtime. They must have strong core sentiments to say this in public. It is the first time in my 63 years to hear this from a Flag Officer about a sitting President.

    • Just Opinions

      Did you see the utter contempt in their eyes at the state of the union address? If looks could kill.

    • Pathfinder0100

      As an 84 year old Korean War Era Veteran (52-59) I gotta agree with you Jack!!

  • Drew the Infidel

    Someone help me get this straight. Obhammud is going to make me safer by releasing a raghead enemy ordnance technician while at the same time making it tougher for the everyday Joe to buy his grandchild a single shot .22 rifle?

      Yep, that’s called the early stages of America’s submission to Islam.

        • Infidel Knight

          Agreed.

    • joe1429

      These are the worst of the worst at gitmo, who will come back and kill us, or have somenelse do it!! 0dousche needs to be impeached for treason!!!

      • Pathfinder0100

        Ya got that right Joe!!

    OK everyone at this post should know to share the video from a google of:

    obama interview with george stephanopoulos my muslim faith

    9-11 was about files in building 7 and a copy of these moved to the Pentagon. I had suggested a copy be made and sent to a very secret location but the chest pounding agents won. It was organized by Bill Clinton to cover the supply by an organization of children to Saudi Royals and politicians in several countries. Look into Bill’s trips to “little st. johns” a pedophile retreat founded by a child porn producer pardoned by Clinton. Bill still vacations there. He is laughing at how stupid the American public is and out how pathetically powerless the FBI is against politicians. All the FBI will say about the child trade is “it is very political”.
    Please wake the F up. Support Trump our last chance for this republic. And yes Obama should be executed for treason as should Bill Clinton.

  • roger

    Hey listen, he’s probably done Yoga whilst in Gitmo, so he’s rehabilitated you see, and now that he has been released he will start a shoe repair business and wag his finger quite sternly at his fellow Muslim jihadists and grimace severely at extremism.
    Why, I’m sure he is as we speak, campaigning for woman’s rights and volunteering to mend American flags and US. Marines uniforms.

  • Arkansas MIke

    Maybe he is supposed to team up with Ahmed (the little bastard clockmaker) mohamad and show him how to make the clock go boom on the next run.

  • gfitzz53

    as usual with obammie, Nothing to see here, move along, move along

  • Just Opinions

    The left created Trump. Ugh.

  • thefounderswereright

    Obama just released him so he could get more exercise so he can get back in shape so he can resume his terrorist calling.

  • Infidel Knight

    The next POTUS must indict and prosecute Obama, Hillary, Kerry, Huma, Jarrett and Mills for starters for High Treason and or Espionage; period, no excuses..!!

  • BrunoPBuhr

    Obama should be imprisoned in Guantanamo, he constantly puts this nation and the world at risk.

  • El Cid

    GITMO was an inspired way of dealing with non-state combatants. Now what will the US do? If this was a war between states this man would be in a military prison, certainly not released to fight again.

    Obama has one idea and he never strays from this belief: The War on Terror is over.

    Clearly it is not. I think the majority of Americans know that to be true.

  • Victor Redlick

    Hey.. Barack, you pathetic duffer! Never mind your stupid golf game that you allegedly suck at, according to the sport’s witnessing cognoscenti; but colossally outdone by your unprecedented failure to even attain a quintuple bogie, let alone par, in the job you were apparently elected to do as president; nevertheless. TWICE!! Not once!, but TWICE!! These – up until just now – incarcerated human vermin and missing links you, and only you, have let go are certainly NOT “the chained” who champion Civil Rights giant, Martin Luther King, had in spiritual and secular mind when he joyously shouted, in liberation, ” Free at last, Free at last..” Can’t you even get that right?
    You will one day be consumed by the domestic and global conflagrations you have so liberally ignited and which has destroyed so many decent, but helpless lives, hopes and cultures – in your insidious process. Thanks in large part to you, the insurmountable collateral ash you have wrought will smoulder for generations. Even your own progenies will feel the decimation.
    I’m surprised you haven’t issued your second home, “Hollywood”, one of your patently tarnished Executive Orders – or maybe even a fatwa – to immediately change the climate that is now rabidly festering, in La La Land – in regards to the “racist” (is it?) absence of African-American nominees for an “Oscar”. After all, that pea-brained self-indulgent oasis in California is the well-spring of some of your biggest contributors and ‘useful idiot’ enablers. Invite them to the White House so that Thirst Lady, Michelle, can put on a crisp Mary Todd Lincoln apron and serve the film industry nabobs flowing pitchers, nay troughs, of addictive Kool Aid, while overlooking the panoramic and now infamous Rose Garden; where you, Barack Hussein Obama, pledged allegiance to the Bergdahl family on behalf of their deserter son Bowe, in front of his badly made Muppet-looking mother and father – the “guests”, the starving news media and the entire world at large. “FORE!.. Barry.. FORE!”

    Is congress seriously going to do nothing after they passed a bill barring obama from closing gitmo, and moving out the detainees??? Wake up ryan!! 0dousche is freeing terrorists who are going to plot to kill us!!! Do something!!!

  • stealth4

    Because Obama is acting pro-terrorist repeatedly, he should take the place of this prisoner. “Political correctness” keeps everybody from putting this psychopathic dictator in prison or a mental hospital. Guantanoize this dictator !

  • Jeanne Ballard

    Obama is a terrorist

  • DrJonnyChepe

    A lot of American hero’s died or were maimed bringing these bastards to justice. With Obama, no justice was served so they died suffered needlessly.
