More Innocent Torture Victims Suddenly Become Jihad Warriors
More freed Guantanamo detainees return to terrorism.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Eleven Saudis who were released from Guant�namo Bay, Cuba, and then passed through a Saudi rehabilitation program for former jihadists are now believed to have fled the country and joined terrorist groups abroad, Saudi officials said Tuesday.
The 11 former detainees include two who were already identified last month as members of a Yemeni terrorist group. Their names were on a list of 85 wanted terrorism suspects made public Tuesday by the Saudi Interior Ministry.
The announcement further underscored the difficulties faced by the Obama administration as it prepares to close the Guant�namo detention center. All told, 14 Saudis now appear to have rejoined terrorist groups after their return from Guant�namo, including the 11 living abroad and 3 who were rearrested in Saudi Arabia after their return.
