“Abu Ghaith and al-Qaidas Dissident Faction in Iran”

SNIPPET: “Finally, I would note that there was speculation in some of the initial reports about Sayf al-Adls release in 2009 that the Iranian diplomat prisoner swap had also included the release of Abu Ghaith and Abu Hafs al-Muritani at that time. Since we now know that wasnt the case, it raises further questions about the current whereabouts of Sayf al-Adl. He, and his colleague Abu Muhammad al-Masri, may very well still be in Iran, or only recently released. I would imagine that it is the fates of these men that the US government is most eager to learn details of from Abu Ghaith, now that he is in custody.”
