Bin Laden's Ex-Bodyguard Cleared for Release From Guantanamo
The Los Angeles Times ^ | Thursday, January 9, 2014 | Richard A. Serrano

Posted on 01/13/2014 6:27:40 PM PST by kristinn

A former bodyguard for Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has been cleared for release from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the first in a series of review hearings that the Obama administration is holding to speed up the eventual closure of the U.S. military prison for terrorist detainees, the Pentagon announced Thursday.

Mahmoud Abd Al Aziz Al Mujahid, who allegedly underwent militant training at a secret camp in Afghanistan, is no longer a "significant threat" to the United States and is eligible for transfer from the prison at some point, the review board members decided.

He has been a captive at Guantanamo since his arrest near Afghanistan's Tora Bora mountains when U.S. troops were closing in on a Bin Laden hideout not long after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. At one time, he was considered a "high risk" Al Qaeda fighter and "a committed jihadist." Bin Laden was killed in a U.S. military raid in 2011.

The review board hearing for Mujahid, a 33-year-old Yemeni, was conducted behind closed doors last fall under a 2011 directive by President Obama to facilitate releases at Guantanamo. The Pentagon held it in secret to test how the process would work.

Quarter him, cut his tongue out and let him swim home. Then he would no be a significant thread.

Release him to the streets in Manhattan, wearing a sign disclosing who he is. Let him walk home.

Obama the Undocumented Indonesian with fake SS##s
has protected the son, and driver, of Osama.

Why?

Why did Obama and the First Lady go to Boston
to protect Osama’s son as he gleefully watched the
Boston Atrocity????

Why? Is it the same reason the DHS ignored
the warnings from Russia BEFORE THE BOSTON ATROCITY?

Can't, we would be going against our own ruling's of "feeding marine wildlife"...

America, what a great country!

Dental him up and put a tiny tracker in one of his molars.

Check in periodically on where he goes, who he deals with.

There was another one. The attorney that got him off became White House Counsel for Obama. I saw an interview with the guy somewhere (on FR of course), I think he was living in Yemen after release.

And of course Holder’s firm got a couple dozen baddies released before he became AG.

“Let him be obama’s bodyguard.”

Your suggestion works well on many levels.

Have you noticed that when you want to connect to the full article, you can hit the connection at the bottom of the page which says “latimes”.

Without glasses, it reads as “latrines”. A most appropriate name for the LA Slimes.

Identify and name the members of the Review Board. Let’s hold them accountable. If they’re so certain he’s no longer a threat, then publicize their names and the evidence entered into the record proving he’s not a ‘significant’ threat.

He has been a captive

You can tell which side the LA Times is on. A captive? How about a prisoner?

I’m all for his release. In Times Square.

Actually no, those geniuses would probably elect him to something.

Chicago’s Mayor Daley just gave his wife an airport that he turned into a park for her. Obama’s one upping him.

He will be a dead man walking to meet Allah in a short time.

The Al Qaeda leaders still alive, know that Benny Laden would still be alive if this man hadn’t told our people in Gitmo, where Benny was hiding.

He will be scavenger tidbits, very soon.
