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.

Gee, what could go wrong?
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.
"It works like a charm, Achmed!"

has protected the son, and driver, of Osama.
Why did Obama and the First Lady go to Boston
to protect Osama’s son as he gleefully watched the
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!
I’ll bet this piece of scum kills Americans of helps plot an attack within a year of release.
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.
One behind the left ear would be fine.
Bad idea. Very bad idea.
Let him be obama’s bodyguard.
“Let him be obamas 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.
how about they spread honey on his sorry ass andstake him to afire ant hill like he deserves instead?
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.
You can tell which side the LA Times is on. A captive? How about a prisoner?
according to Obummer- he is just been misunderstood by a racist society —
BUT THE real reason he is being released....
Happy Birthday Mooooochelle! here’s an early Bday present!
