More treason from the treasonous President. Gitmo was full of trained, dedicated, battle-hardened jihadis. Now they are waging jihad again.

“Freed Gitmo detainee, ex-bin Laden aide cements place as top jihadist in videos,” Fox News, February 17, 2016:

When Ibrahim al Qosi was released from Guantanamo Bay in 2012, a lawyer for the former Usama bin Laden aide said he looked forward to living a life of peace in his native Sudan.

Three years later, Qosi has emerged as a prominent voice of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, appearing in a number of AQAP propaganda videos — including a 50-minute lecture calling for the takeover of Saudi Arabia.

The 56-year-old Qosi delivered a scathing critique of the Saudi monarchy — which appeared online on Feb. 6 — denouncing the Saudi government’s execution of more than 40 “mujahedeen” in January, according to the Long War Journal.

In the two-part lecture, titled “A Message to Our People in the Land of the Two Holy Mosques,” Qosi says the men were killed because they declared jihad against the “Crusaders” and opposition to American interests abroad.

Qosi speaks about Al Qaeda’s jihad against the Saudi monarchy, claiming Usama bin Laden was motivated by the U.S. government’s “occupation” of the country’s two holiest sanctuaries, the journal reported.

Qosi’s call for an end to the Saudi-U.S. alliance came at nearly the same time an Al Qaeda newsletter published a 9/11 “insider account” from a former AQAP leader who was killed by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in June.

Nasir al Wuhayshi, who was once one of bin Laden’s top lieutenants, claimed he got the idea for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks after watching news coverage of the 1999 crash of EgyptAir Flight 990, in which a jihadist co-pilot caused the airliner to nosedive into the Atlantic.
