A senior Al Qaeda leader and former Guantanamo detainee in Yemen has called for renewed attacks on the U.S. just days before Americans prepare to vote for a new president.
We pledge and vow to continue fighting America. Hitting, confronting and striking until it falls back behind the seas. None is upon us except by the will of Allah, Ibrahim Al Qosi, a convicted Al Qaeda paymaster said in a speech entitled "15 years since the takeoff of the modern crusade."
The Foreign Desk has obtained a transcript of Al Qosi's speech.
Al Qosi advises followers to concentrate your military expedition towards the crusaders and its apostate agents, calling for renewed attacks against the U.S. while criticizing the Obama administrations inaction in Syria that has allowed Russia and Iran to take a leading role in the conflict.
Al Qosi, 54, also know as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani, is a Sudanese citizen who was detained by the U.S. in Afghanistan in 2001 and served a short prison sentence after admitting support for Al Qaeda.
He was transferred to Sudan in 2012 as part of a deal to rehabilitate former terror detainees, but in 2015, he resurfaced in Yemen reportedly as a leader with the Ansar al-Sharia terror group, more commonly known as Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
U.S. officials Friday alerted federal officials in New York, Texas and Virginia about an unspecified threat by Al Qaeda around Election Day, though a government source deemed the threat relatively low-level. Authorities have been told to remain vigilant, according to Reuters.
It is unclear whether Al Qosis speech is connected to the latest threat.
Al Qosi touts Al Qaeda's legitimacy and power as a terror organization, emphasizing that despite Americas best attempts to destroy the group, they have only grown stronger, expanding to many more locations in the 15 years since the U.S. went to war with Afghanistan.
Muslim youth and old he claims, are accepting jihad individually and in groups. Battalions are formed and brigades are prepared with fresh blood and enthusiasm.
He also accuses America of being a bystander in the Syria conflict arguing that the U.S. prevented a no-fly zone that could have saved the lives of women and children and failed to arm rebels fighting Assad out of fear that the weapons could fall into the wrong hands.
Al Qosi's message extends beyond the U.S. with a stern warning for rival jihadis loyal to the Islamic State to turn away and to realign themselves with Al Qaeda:
O followers of the Baghdadi Group, time has come for you to return, repent, and retreat It is time you realize that you need your ummah and that the ummah needs its every power to defend itself from aggressive enemies.
Al Qosi previously appeared in Al Qaeda videos as well as an interview with the terror groups Inspire Magazine calling for so-called lone wolf jihadi attacks against the U.S.
In July, The Foreign Desk reported on a video showing recruits training at an indoor facility in Yemen with jihadis taunting the U.S. into military confrontation and vowing to fight to capture Palestine and the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
Obama knows damn well that these Death Cultists can never be rehabilitated or "deradicalized." In his mind, that's all the more reason to release them.
pResident Obama stands exposed as a naked traitor who gave aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war.
P!ss be upon him
Lol, these are the guys that America is supporting in Yemen against the Houthis.
Trump would have never released this terrorist or put him to death.
WHY hasn't 0bamao been arrested for treason??
Because he is POTUS and gets away with it.
Bring it, al-Koozie.
You can be greased by an armed “infidel” anywhere, anytime.
Justice, in its myriad manifestations, will be satisfied.
B I N G O !
Released from Gitmo in 2012.
Obama in White Hut.
Crooked Hillary SOS. Wonder how much Yemen paid the Clinton Crime Foundation for the release?
Bush never properly dealt with illegal combatants, and we have the result here, after Obama.
Same reason why Bush wasn't arrested for similar crimes.
Obama/Hillary - the booby prizes that keep on giving....
...concentrate your military expedition towards the crusaders and its apostate agents, calling for renewed attacks against the U.S....
I guess that’s why we have not seen Huma lately; she’s getting her muzzard regiment set up.
Wow, who saw that coming?
Thanks to our Terrorist in Chief.
Whatever America is doing over in Yemen remains a complete mystery to me. Mainly because the conflict is rarely discussed in any public forum. There could be other radio shows, other news websites that do discuss and debate this circumstance, but I don’t know of any. The only conclusion I can arrive at is our actions over there don’t seem to have very much consequence or lasting power.
The Bushes are part of the Clinton Crime Family.

How does one rehabilitate a terrorist?
I'd say a large calibre round to the base of the skull.
He just needs a job and a hug!! :)
