From Gitmo, To Saudi Arabia, To IRAN, To Yemen

December 30, 2009

Americans fancy the idea that while we might have been asleep prior to 9/11/2001, now our eyes are wide open and we are on alert. This is a pipe dream.

If people’s eyes were truly open, they would be closely examining the path Gitmo detainee Said Ali al-Shihri took to Yemen, where we are now learning he helped plan the Christmas Jihad.

Said reportedly left Gitmo, went through “rehabilitation” in Saudi Arabia, then moved to Iran before ending up as a leader of al-Qaeda in Yemen.

For example, Said Ali al-Shihri left Gitmo in 2007 and became a patient in Saudi Arabia’s terrorist rehabilitation program. Upon graduation, he went to Iran, and then became the deputy leader of Al-Qaeda in Yemen. Abdullah al-Qarawi following a similar path, also traveling to Iran after finishing the program, where he know oversees over 100 Saudi Al-Qaeda operatives. Mohammed al-Oufi, a former Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula commander, also was released from Gitmo. Luckily, he defected later and informed the Saudis about Iran’s secret involvement with Al-Qaeda in Yemen and a plot to bomb the Saudi oil infrastructure. [READ MORE...]

Iran and al-Qaeda have a common goal in Yemen: Destroy the Saudi Royal Family.

The United States has known for a long time about the Iranian al-Qaeda connection related to Said Ali al-Shihri, but you shouldn’t take an evil libertarian-conservative’s word for it. You can read all about Said Ali al-Shihri and his history operating in Iran, in the New York Times:


The other inconvenient truth for the Obama Administration and the Progressive Left as a whole, is that Said Ali al-Shihri and his fellow Jihad terrorist who went from Gitmo to Yemen, were probably clients of Eric Holder’s law firm, Covington & Burling.

More info on the Yemeni Jihad connection to Eric Holder’s law firm Covington & Burling is available at Gateway Pundit, and Jammie Wearing Fool.

Bush might have let them go, but does anyone seriously believe he would have ever done so if not for the constant pressure applied by the American Progressive Left?

These Yemeni Jihad terrorists are the Progressive Left’s chickens coming home to roost on all of us!

    As I’ve always said, you can’t rehabilitate evil. It’s why I believe criminals deserve no rights once they’ve murdered or raped. A bit like cheaters imo.

    But guess there’s one good thing. We can now point at the left, sneer and say ‘We told you so’. Or something. Maybe flip them off.\

    I really don’t wanna start living with the fear I had right after 9/11 happened :/

    The US let five Gitmo Saudi’s out in exchange for 2 westerners who were falsley accused of blowing up a British engineer in his car in Riyadh. These five were greeted as hereo’s in Saudi.

    If you really want to get into the heads of how saudi’s think. read the book “Paramedic to the Prince” it was written by an American paramedic who was on the medical team for king Abdullah. The best book written about saudi I have ever read.

    Watching this country start to make the same blunders in Yemen as it has made in Iraq and Afghanistan is not fun. Al Quada’s mission has always been the same: provoke an overwhelming US attack to their every botched attempt.

    Doesn’t anyone around here learn ANYTHING? They told us openly after 9/11 that the goal is to push the US into armed intervention in Muslim countries. The strategy worked under Bush and it is still in effect under Obama.

    We cannot get loose from these conflicts because any exit would damage our claim to be the world’s only superpower.

    We saved the banks because they were “too big to fail.” Now these wars become too important to lose–lose face, that is. We might get out of Iraq because we’ll convince ourselves we’ve “won” something. And a similar bait and switch may work in Afghanistan. But those two shams will just make it harder to learn from our mistakes and not start interfering in Yemen of all places.

    So much for the “kill ‘em with kindness” doctrine…
