Guantánamo detainee resurfaces in terrorist group
By Robert F. Worth Published: January 23, 2009
International Herald Tribune

"BEIRUT: The emergence of a former Guantánamo Bay detainee as the deputy leader of Al Qaeda's Yemeni branch has underscored the potential complications in carrying out the executive order that President Barack Obama signed that the detention center be shut down within a year.

The militant, Said Ali al-Shihri, is suspected of involvement in a deadly bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Yemen's capital, Sana, in September. He was released to Saudi Arabia in 2007 and passed through a Saudi rehabilitation program for former jihadists before resurfacing with Al Qaeda in Yemen.

His status was announced in an Internet statement by the militant group and was confirmed by a U.S. counterterrorism official. "They're one and the same guy," said the official, who insisted on anonymity because he was discussing an intelligence analysis. "He returned to Saudi Arabia in 2007, but his movements to Yemen remain unclear."

The development came as Republican legislators criticized the plan to close the Guantánamo Bay detention camp in the absence of any measures for dealing with current detainees. But it also helps explain why the new administration wants to move cautiously, taking time to work out a plan to cope with the complications."

Yep folks, just a bunch of unfortunates denied their civil liberties.

Ok people,Just what,just what,if Obama gets Bin Laden in the next year?

You know this is going to happen.I don't agree with what he is doing on this.

But,I will bet you money,marbles,or chalk,he will get Bin Laden.

Just think about it a little bit.

Then he will be the (MESSIAH),and lead us to slaughter.

Where in the hell is (GRAMMIE)?
