Ibrahim al-Qosi was a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay for a decade for his role in aiding the Taliban and Al Qaeda during the U.S. led invasion of Afghanistan following the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.
In the current administration’s efforts to close down Guantanamo Bay, deals were struck with the terrorists, including Al-Qosi. In 2010, Al-Qosi agreed to a deal where he pled guilty to conspiracy and providing support to terrorists. In exchange for his admission to supporting terrorist organizations who seek to destroy America, Al-Qosi was given a 14 year sentence.
In 2012, Al-Qosi was released into Sudan, his native country. Surely, the time he spent in Guantanamo cured him of radical terrorist ideologies, right? Wrong!
Al-Qosi recently surfaced in an Al Qaeda video, “Guardians of Sharia.” In the video Al-Qosi and his terrorist brethren encourage attacks against the western world and spout radical Islamic ideology. According to Fox News, Al-Qosi is now one of the senior leaders of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
This is what happens when the leaders of our country are more worried about being politically correct than ensuring the safety of it’s citizens. When will the administration learn that terrorists can’t be rehabilitated?
