Wonderful: Two Flight 253 plotters were released from Gitmo in 2007

posted at 5:47 pm on December 28, 2009 by Allahpundit

Via Gabriel Malor, not the first case of compassionate release from Gitmo to have gone drastically wrong but certainly the one that’ll have the most political fallout.

This reads like the plot of one of those over-the-top David Zucker attack ads against the left — except it wasn’t the left that presided over this one. The next interview with Dick or Liz Cheney should be pretty interesting, huh?

Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November, 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.

American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an “art therapy rehabilitation program” and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.

Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari, were sent to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of detainees who were released from American custody. Al-Harbi has since changed his name to Muhamad al-Awfi…

“The so-called rehabilitation programs are a joke,” a U.S. diplomat said in describing the Saudi efforts with released Guantanamo detainees.

Saudi officials concede its program has had its “failures” but insist that, overall, the effort has helped return potential terrorists to a meaningful life.

One program gives the former detainees paints and crayons as part of the rehabilitation regimen.

From “Allahu Akbar” to “Crayola Akbar.” On the bright side, at least The One has learned from Bush’s terrible folly here, right? Wrong. Bob Gates has been pushing since May to transfer 97 Yemeni detainees to the Saudi rehab program; as of 10 days ago the plan was to send six Yemenis back to Yemen itself with possibly scores more to follow. Any reason to worry about that? Yep: Yemen is notorious for jihadi jailbreaks, from mass escapes like the one in 2006 where 23 AQ operatives went loose to the U.S.S. Cole bomber who broke out of prison twice until finally — I kid you not — Yemen simply let him go after he gave them his solemn word that he’d cool it with the jihadism. These paragraphs from CBS’s 2007 story about the Cole case are worth quoting:

Yemen does not have a law that criminalizes Jihad, or holy war. Detainees remain in prison until they either renounce their commitment to Jihad or are released under pressure from family and human rights groups.

Since the suicide attack in July that killed eight Spanish tourists visiting an ancient Yemeni temple, President Saleh has said in several interviews with local papers that al Qaeda had reached a truce with the government.

If not for the Crotch Bomber, these people would now be preparing to take custody from The One of nearly 100 mujahedeen zombies. As it is, it’s time for plan B. Exit question: What’s plan B?

Damn it man! This is the mainstream media, not responsible bloggers you are giving credence to! THINK!

Danzo on December 28, 2009 at 6:04 PM

What this awful event (as also that as to the Cole terrorism) emphasises is that you can’t reason with the unreasonable. I agree that terrorists can’t be “rehabilitated” in any sense that any reasonable person would recognize (or be able to rely upon afterward), same as with sex offenders, especially as to pedophiles. Some individuals are just too far gone into insanity to ever redirect them back, not without divine intervention and that’s not an uninvited process (usually follows an invite) and most in these categories aren’t asking to be redirected back (from Islam, from sexual predation, to use those two dedicated sets).

More reason that terrorists must be dealt with in military terms (as enemies of the nation) and not in a squishy realm of civil procedures.

Yep, lay this at Bush’s door… except for the part where Congress (controlled by Dems who pushed the idea that all the detainees were just innocent victims being held unlawfully, and were hamstringing him at every turn) and the courts were saying they couldn’t be held.

So, the sooner the politically-correct nonsense about the so-called “religion of peace” gets contained, the better.

This is why I previously warned that we conservatives shouldn’t try to make this story about shoddy terrorist watch lists or Obama policies… It just ends up turning into “it’s Bush’s fault!!”

No question Bush was pressured into releasing these guys, especially after the Supreme Court smacked down his detention programs like 3 times in a row. However, at the end of the day, Bush released these guys after the Defense Department made some kind of determination they weren’t especially dangerous. A fairly high percentage of them ended up attacking us again, this being the latest and highest-profile example.

Not just two. There were several released at the same time and they are probably all in the group. But I thought the US or the Yemen govt killed all these guys a few days ago. Who did they kill with the missiles if not these guys?

An article I read this morning, and I don’t remember where, says that Yemen officials don’t want AQ over there and gave the US permission to fire the missiles. So, maybe that’s the plan, release them and then track them down with drones. Could be the only answer since, like several people have said, you aren’t going to rehabilitate them. Especially not with crayons.

Now an EXTREMELY CONVENIENT second revelation by ABC, that Bush let out the very people CNN claimed was taking credit?

COME ON! You really buying this? This is coordinated COVER for the utter failure by the Obama administration, and it is ALL MADE UP to blame Bush!

From MikeA’s link, a quote from a NYT editorial in 2007:

First, Congress needs to restore the right of the inmates of Guantánamo Bay to challenge their detentions. By the administration’s own count, only a small minority of the inmates actually deserve a trial. The rest should be sent home or set free.

Since the Bush administration was fighting to keep the detainees in Gitmo, I’d say this one isn’t right to lay at his feet.

Instead the lion’s share of the blame should go to libs and their skewed sense of “human rights” as it pertains to radical islamic terrorists.

Do you think Gitmo should be closed?

Yes.

First guess, partition the terrorists inside a particular country?

No. According to Give em Hell Joe, it doesn’t exist LOL.

BTW, a Club Gitmo alum returning to terrorism is nothing new, so why would anyone be surprised:

An unreleased Pentagon report concludes that about one in seven of the 534 prisoners already transferred abroad from the detention center in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, are engaged in terrorism or militant activity, according to administration officials.

The conclusion could strengthen the arguments of critics who have warned against the transfer or release of any more detainees as part of President Obama’s plan to shut down the prison by January. Past Pentagon reports on Guantánamo recidivism have been met with skepticism from civil liberties groups and criticized for their lack of detail.
