    Former Guantanamo detainee now al Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula's Mufti

    Former Guantanamo detainee now al Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula's Mufti - The Long War Journal

    A former Guantanamo detainee has emerged as a leading ideologue and theologian for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula one of the strongest al Qaeda affiliates in the world.

    Ibrahim Suleiman al Rubaish was captured by Pakistani authorities in late 2001 and then handed over to American officials who transferred him to Guantanamo. Rubaish was held there until Dec. 13, 2006, when he was transferred to Saudi Arabia and placed in the Saudi rehabilitation program for jihadists. At some point, Rubaish escaped from Saudi Arabia by fleeing south to Yemen.

    In February 2009, the Saudi Kingdom placed Rubaish, along with at least 10 other former Gitmo detainees, on its list of 85 most-wanted terrorists. One of the former Gitmo detainees Rubaish fled to Yemen with, Said Ali al Shihri, is now the deputy of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which was formed when the al Qaeda branches in Yemen and Saudi Arabia merged.

    Two other former Gitmo detainees who fled to Yemen along with Rubaish have been killed in shootouts. [See LWJ reports "Former Gitmo detainee killed in shootout" and "Another former Gitmo detainee killed in shootout."]

    Now there is a perfect illustration of what we can expect from now on from Saudi Arabia, the home of where children are taught contempt for anyone who is Christian or Jewish, and the West as a whole is nothing but a bunch of denigrates who need to die pretty much on the whole.

    Doing business with them is bad enough but to see Obama bow and kiss their ass is a bit much.

    If the we had a leader with a vision of the future and who would put what is good for us first we could be energy independent in a few years and it wouldn't have to cost a fortune to do it.

    We have enough untapped oil to keep us going while we convert to renewable energy for the vast majority of our needs.

    Sadly the environmentalist are standing in the way of progress by opposing the very power generating plants they pushed for early on, namely Solar and Wind generation.

    They are fighting Solar in California and Nevada and wind off the coast in the Atlantic, and the reasons a to say the least ridiculous and stupid.
