More treason from the treasonous President. Gitmo was full of trained, dedicated, battle-hardened jihadis. Now they are waging jihad again.

Ibrahim al Qosi2

“Freed Gitmo detainee, ex-bin Laden aide cements place as top jihadist in videos,” Fox News, February 17, 2016:

When Ibrahim al Qosi was released from Guantanamo Bay in 2012, a lawyer for the former Usama bin Laden aide said he looked forward to living a life of peace in his native Sudan.

Three years later, Qosi has emerged as a prominent voice of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, appearing in a number of AQAP propaganda videos — including a 50-minute lecture calling for the takeover of Saudi Arabia.

The 56-year-old Qosi delivered a scathing critique of the Saudi monarchy — which appeared online on Feb. 6 — denouncing the Saudi government’s execution of more than 40 “mujahedeen” in January, according to the Long War Journal.

In the two-part lecture, titled “A Message to Our People in the Land of the Two Holy Mosques,” Qosi says the men were killed because they declared jihad against the “Crusaders” and opposition to American interests abroad.

Qosi speaks about Al Qaeda’s jihad against the Saudi monarchy, claiming Usama bin Laden was motivated by the U.S. government’s “occupation” of the country’s two holiest sanctuaries, the journal reported.

Qosi’s call for an end to the Saudi-U.S. alliance came at nearly the same time an Al Qaeda newsletter published a 9/11 “insider account” from a former AQAP leader who was killed by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in June.

Nasir al Wuhayshi, who was once one of bin Laden’s top lieutenants, claimed he got the idea for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks after watching news coverage of the 1999 crash of EgyptAir Flight 990, in which a jihadist co-pilot caused the airliner to nosedive into the Atlantic.

    The commander- in- chief let him go! What else can you expect from someone who, after all these islamic horrors, keeps telling the world that islam is a religion of peace? He said just that recently during his visit to a jihadi-mosque in the US! Hopeless!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    There is only one solution to this issue, when a lawyer gets a terrorist released, if the released person commits a crime, the lawyer finishes the criminals sentence.

    • Dave J Lawson

      yes , Great idea. But who will do it ? Ted the liar ?

      He supported amnesty . He keeps lying and cheating and never said a word when obama deported syrian christians back to iraq to get them killed http://tinyurl.com/qzzoqru

      And this slimeball shows his Bible to pretend to be christian to fool the ppl and get elected when he does not really care a damn ?

      Its only Trump who raises issue of christians being slaughtered by ISIS during his speeches.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        There will be some changes made, the cowshit “hope for change phrase will be garbaged, replace with “Change for the better, now”.

        Go Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • aaron morand

        would you please provide some evidence for your comment re O
        returned Syrian Christians back to Iraq to get them killed? I want to
        know re this crime and who, what department, implemented this
        program/action?

  • nobamunism

    Looks like his beard is getting gray since US taxpayers aren’t footing his dye bill.

  • rambler

    There is something to be said for shooting enemy combatants after capture. No need for a GITMO. No complaints of torture. No trading them for traitors. No returning to the fight. Dirt nap!

  • hiskid1964

    Execute ALL GITMO prisoners at once.

  • karl59

    This guy must be one of Obama’s uncles.

  • He should stay in the s..t hole he hides in. Because if he sticks his head out long enough he will lose it. But then again……..Maybe not . He is after all one of Obamas buddies.
    You know, one of the peaceful, non violent muslems he is always preaching to the AMERICAN people about.

  • Infidel Knight

    If Obama isn’t guilty of treason than no such thing as treason exists anymore…!!!

    • roger

      Yes, I’ve noticed that the crime of “criminal negligence” is gone as well except in the case of malpractice suits.

      • Infidel Knight

        Imagine that, normally I agree incoming administrations should not “go after” the last administration. However in Obama’s case, an exception must be made.

  • Tina

    Can anyone tell me why terrorists were released? Why didn’t they have trials followed by execution or life in prison? This seems crazy to me.

    • roger

      I think you are right,
      If a person carries out an act of warfare dressed as a civilian and does not show any identifying characteristic emblem or signage, and also carries out terrorist attacks against civilian targets then it would be reasonable to assume that laws of the Geneva convention should apply.

  • roger

    But Obama said he was rehabilitated, didn’t he do yoga and artistic activities…
    Oh well, don’t worry, Obama has his team keeping an eye on Qosi, and if he orders any more than a hundred suicide bombings, five hundred beheadings a thousand rapes of minorities and young boys, Obama will be sure to punish the innocent.

  • joe1429

    How can the secy of defense sign off on these suspects… that they wont commit more crimes after released?? Ash carter should resign, a real hack

  • J. Neville Groff

    That beard says “I love tomato soup and little boys”

  • joe kulak

    That’s an awful lot of butt-sniffing jihadis loosed on the world. Obama deserves the ‘full Mussolini’ many times over.

  • aaron morand

    Hey Qosi, dont forget your manners…write home to your benefactor (Mr O.) and
    thank him for the release and sending you back into the battle….but, i dont think
    it would be appropriate right now to ask for a cair package,,,,i mean a care package
    from daddy “O”…unless you like pork…that seems to be all that is on the menu
    in DC presently….oink…..
