    "WASHINGTON — When the U.S. military detained Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in Iraq in 2004, it was too inexperienced at dealing with suspected terrorists to know what kind of threat he potentially posed when it released him just 10 months later, those who worked in the military detention system at that time now concede.

    A review of documents made public by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks makes clear that commanders were crafting standard operating procedures even as they took in ever more detainees, tackling questions as basic as how often to conduct headcounts. According to Wikileaks, the military produced 40 documents in 2004 reviewing procedures at Camp Bucca, indicating the camp was a work in progress.


    Baghdadi had been arrested in February 2004 along with several others in the western Sunni-dominated city of Fallujah and was held at the military’s Camp Bucca in southern Iraq until he was released in December of that year, the Pentagon said.

    It wasn’t until 2006, long after Baghdadi had been released, that the U.S. began keeping detailed records on it detainees, including collecting biometrics to help in identifying individuals who, like Baghdadi, might be using a number of aliases."

    ""Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Al Badry, also known as 'Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi' was held as a 'civilian internee' by U.S. Forces-Iraq from early February 2004 until early December 2004, when he was released," the Pentagon told us in a statement. "He was held at Camp Bucca. A Combined Review and Release Board recommended 'unconditional release' of this detainee and he was released from U.S. custody shortly thereafter. We have no record of him being held at any other time."

    In short, according to the Defense Department, the man who heads Islamic State was set free in 2004, long before Obama took office, and he was not recaptured."

    "The Pentagon says that Mr. Baghdadi, after being arrested in Falluja in early 2004, was released that December with a large group of other prisoners deemed low level. But Hisham al-Hashimi, an Iraqi scholar who has researched Mr. Baghdadi’s life, sometimes on behalf of Iraqi intelligence, said that Mr. Baghdadi had spent five years in an American detention facility where, like many ISIS fighters now on the battlefield, he became more radicalized."

    There are an equal number of sources which claim precisely the opposite. I'm with the commander here. You hang with Obama. He's your style. BTW, Baghdadi has more aliases than carter has pills, if you check. That's why the commander looking at him is more credible from the start.

    He is. And Ive also heard that some of the terrorists Obama swapped for that traitor Bergdahl are already fighting for ISIS.

    The fail never ends in Obamaville, does it?

    And those are wrong. It was a lie. It has been debunked. Move on.

    I'm not "hanging" with anyone. Im simply stating what your are claiming that Obama released him is not true. He was released in 2004. Obama did not have the power to release him. Government sources confirm this.

    That is debatable. The Taliban was an organization made up of 4 Afghani tribes trying to defeat the other 14 tribes of the Northern Alliance to take over rule of all of Afghanistan. It is true the Taliban gave sanctuary to UBL and AQ, but they themselves were not exporting terrorism, it was AQ. They also had more or less a standing army in the traditional sense. One can also say after the Northern Alliance drove them out of Afghanistan, some stayed behind to conduct guerrilla warfare which is associated with terrorism. At least in the way they conducted their guerrilla warfare.

    Those captured that were in their so called standing army should be treated as POW's, the guerrilla folks/terrorist should be treated as such. In my mind there is a difference. A force attacking an outpost if some are captured should be treated as POW's. A man using explosive devices to blow up civilians etc, is a terrorist.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Well if they are foreign fighters taken from other battlefields.....then they are terrorists. No need for any attorneys.

    I don't think so at all. I can't help but notice you didn't address the track record on truthfulness for this administration. Sorry, but AQ isn't on the run, and they haven't been decimated, and we had public hearings on this very issue which are part of public record now that this administration and the organs of it have been lying about this issue as well since. I take the word of the commander on the ground at the time, every time, rather than the word of proven liars.

    Sure you are, but I can understand that hanging with Obama and all his lies would be something you'd like to deny. BTW, I didn't claim anything other than what the reporting asserts. Your problem is the veracity of the sources you claim are definitive, when we know they aren't, by demonstration. You may want to run with liars. I don't.

    Perhaps they don't understand why he's doing what he's doing any more than anyone else does, so what can they say? However, several high-ranking Dems, and the entire Supreme Court which includes Dems, have been publicly challenging him for answers lately on a variety of topics that they do know about, and they haven't been shy about it either! Who knows.........
