No doubt the bombing was due to the detainees horrible mistreatment at the hands of his captors. I suppose they forgot the mint on his pillow one evening.

..School officials said Elbaneh was the daughter of Ali T. Elbaneh and the niece of Mohamed T. Albanna, two Yemeni-American community leaders who took plea deals in a case involving an unlicensed money-transmitting company that illegally sent at least $5.5 million to Yemen. Authorities never have alleged that the money was used for terrorist purposes. In November 2006, U. S. District Judge William M. Skretny sentenced Ali T. Elbaneh to six months of home confinement for playing what federal prosecutors called a very minor role in the illegal business. Albanna received a five-year prison term. Authorities said the dead woman also was related to Jaber Elbaneh [Ed. — that is the FBI’s bulletin], Mohamed Albanna’s nephew, a fugitive accused of traveling to a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan with the “Lackawanna Six.”

It doesn’t count because the Gitmo detainee was oppressed and the victim was American.

As for the victim being Muslim? Well that is canceled out by the fact that the perp was Muslim. Same thing goes when Hamas slaughters Palestinians.

When you release terrorists, serial killers, career criminals from the prison you are holding them in the released tend to go back to doing the things they do like: terrorism, killing, crime. That’s why they are called “terrorists,” “serial killers,” and “career criminals.” Is this too obvious for the left?

The militant, Said Ali al-Shihri, is suspected of involvement in a deadly bombing of the United States Embassy in Yemen’s capital, Sana, in September. He was released to Saudi Arabia in 2007 and passed through a Saudi rehabilitation program for former jihadists before resurfacing with Al Qaeda in Yemen.

In Jan 2006, I was flying back from Paris to Denver, and my girlfriend and I were assigned seats away from each other (that was fine, we weren’t speaking anyway, another story). I had a young student from SA as a seat mate. He was going to a school in the upper mid west.

As others have already pointed out, unless it was a Westerner (or an Israeli) killing Muslims, it’s not going to make the front page. What’s sad is to many Muslims, they also tend to ignore it unless if it’s done at the hands of another Muslim (just look at the outcries over the blockade and the blame of Israel, when Egypt is also a participant!)

See post #28. (there is, of course, that potential for repeats — free more Gitmo detainees and they, too, may go on to commit terrorist acts…as was done in this instance. Anyway, I don’t want these detainees coming to Canada, etc. — not of course that that will stop the moral imbeciles from clamoring for their entrance here as “refugees”. There’s already been talk, btw, of Omar Khadr being set free immediately upon entering Canada — and the reason is that Khadr is accused of having committed a murder abroad, but hasn’t been tried, hence, technically, he’s “innocent” and it’s a big so-what? “So what if he murdered an American medic?” No big deal here (including, from so-called religious — spit — “leaders.” and, “no, the “religious” leaders are not just Muslims.)

All hand wringing about Geneva Convention, habeus corpus and all the other legal niceties aside, at the very least, these detainees are prisoners, captured in a war. And at the very least they should be held until the end of that war, exactly like German, Italian and Japanese prisoners were held until the end of WWII.
Just because they happened to engage in a war who’s ending will be difficult, if not impossible to determine, meaning they may be held for a very, very long time gives me no reason for sympathy. These are bad actors and we ought to have no heartburn telling them “I guess it sucks to be you”……

That is actually a great suggestion. I doubt if it’s legal.

Think of what would happen if the AQ brass even imagined such a thing. The detainees would probably not be tortured … oh, wait … but they certainly would be “dealt with” in a manner that only the AQ organization (AQ is “some terrorist group” here) would use. They would only be able to “deal with” the problem by exposing a position or two, as well.

Beijing just called. They want their uighers back.

BEIJING — Beijing warned other countries on Thursday not to accept Chinese Muslim detainees released from the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, reiterating a long-standing demand that they be returned to China.

In one of his first acts as president, Barack Obama ordered Guantanamo shut by the end of 2009. Last month, Obama gave a U.S. task force 30 days to recommend where to put the 245 remaining detainees.

Three of the 17 ethnic Uighur Muslims currently held at the detention facility have been cleared for release and have asked for political asylum in Canada, lawyers for the men and the Uighur Canadian Association, a nonprofit group sponsoring the men, said Tuesday. Two of the men applied last week and one applied in October.

The U.S. government and human rights groups say they could be abused and tortured if returned to China.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu did not mention Canada directly, but said China was “against any country accepting these people.”

“We hope it will be handled appropriately and in accordance with international law,” Jiang said at a regularly scheduled news conference. China contends that international law requires the men be returned, although there is no accepted consensus.

Jiang did not give details or say whether China planned retaliatory action against countries that accepted the men.

China says they are members of a violent separatist group and demands they be returned to face trial. The men were captured on battlefields in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The former Bush administration said the Uighurs were too dangerous to be admitted to the U.S. Albania accepted five Uighur detainees in 2006 but has since balked at taking others, partly for fear of diplomatic repercussions from China.

Canada, which hasn’t commented on the latest cases, had previously refused several requests from Washington to provide asylum for men cleared for release.

On Tuesday, the EU Justice Commissioner Jacques Barrot said European countries that agree to take in Guantanamo detainees may eligible for financial aid. The major parties in the European Parliament are urging EU nations to accept some 45 inmates from Guantanamo.

Privately, European diplomats say Chinese officials have been visiting their governments warning them against receiving the men.

Uighurs traditionally formed the majority in northwestern China’s Xinjiang region, which borders on Pakistan and Afghanistan. Militants among China’s six million Uighurs have waged a long-simmering campaign to overthrow Chinese rule, saying their culture and religion are threatened by communist restrictions and waves of immigrants from other parts of the country.

re: #46 Fat Bastard Vegetarian

I have an appointment tonight with a man who’s first name is Muhammad. Seriously.

Don’t you wish you were me?

So? One of the best and most helpful engineers on my team is named Oussama. I don’t have a problem with him or his name, he didn’t pick it.

Now, if someone were to name their kid Osama after 9-11, I’d have a problem with that, oh wait, a lot of folks did…

نعم ، نستطيع.

I have no idea how to pronounce that, though.

“Na[strangledvoice]am nastoTey[strangledvoice]ergggh”, basically. (That sound you heard was all the Semites on this board laughing their asses off at me. Sorry! I’m only part Semitic!)

The ‘ayin (ع) is a “vowel” pronounced by constricting my own throat. The vowel I did with a capital T (ط) is like a normal T except with the lips pursed… like I was trying to say “taw” instead of “tah”.

It does mean “yes we-can” but na’am seems subdued… maybe “aysh nastoTey[gack]”?

I meant, of course, aywa not aysh. PIMF

As for this story, we shouldn’t blame Obama for terrorist attacks this year in general, but we can certainly pin this murder on his crappy decisions. He seems to have wrongfooted every decision put to him so far…

Danged skippy!

Why would the MSM report anything that would be contrary to their on-going agenda where Gitmo, terrorism or Obama for that matter are concerned?

They are at their very best when making some crap up in support of their shared causes with the left-at-large, and especially, those within the Democratic party who continue to sell anything and everything anti-American.
