Like Daniel said in a recent tweet: “It’s a start”…….
GITMO TERRORIST FREED BY OBAMA KILLED IN AIRSTRIKE BY TRUMP
Another example of how we’re going to be cleaning up Obama’s mess for a very long time. Obama insisted on freeing as many terrorists as he could from Gitmo. And the next step was inevitable.
The Pentagon said Monday that the military killed a former Guantanamo Bay detainee in a Yemen strike on March 2 targeting Al-Qaeda’s most dangerous faction.
The strike, part of a renewed U.S. drive to target Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, killed Yasir al Silmi, who was held at the U.S. detention center in Cuba for seven years between 2002 and 2009 and then repatriated to Yemen.
According to memos released from the detention center in 2008, the Department of Defense warned that Tahar would “engage in extremist activities upon release. He has threatened personnel and continues to support jihad.” The Associated Press reported that Rear Admiral Mark Buzby, the commander at Guantanamo in that year, had raised Tahar’s risk level from “medium” to “high.”
Authorities nonetheless released him and allowed him to return to his homeland in 2009.
Thanks, Obama. Also thanks to Pardiss Kebriaei of the Center for Constitutional Rights.
Now he’s no longer a threat.
