You can thank Obama for this. Do we really think that terrorists are going to leave Guantanamo and become contributing members to society?
A former Guantanamo Bay detainee who worked as Osama Bin Laden’s treasurer has appeared in an al-Qaeda propaganda video after secretly joining the jihadi franchise in Yemen.
Ibrahim Qosi, who is also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani, was detained in Guantanamo Bay in 2003 after he was caught by Pakistani forces at Tora Bora, Afghanistan, in December 2001.
He was released in 2012 after pleading guilty in 2010 to having been an al-Qaeda foot soldier.
Now it has been revealed that Qosi, who served as Osama Bin Laden’s long time treasurer and driver, has become a top leader in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), based in Yemen.
Qosi briefly appears in the lengthy video, revealing in a short interview how he believed al-Qaeda needed to continue ‘individual jihad’, lone wolf attacks, against the West.
He also praised the actions of the Kouachi brothers, who carried out the deadly attack on the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris at the beginning of this year.
