    Former Guantánamo prisoner dies fighting alongside rebels in Syria.

    If this jihadist fighter was released from Gitmo during the Obama Administration, John Kerry would no doubt claim he knew all along that that the jihadist was a US ally !

    Doesnt this pretty much prove how radical the Syrian rebels are?

    Sheik Abu Ahmad al Muhajir, eulogised as Mohammed al Alami, joined a Syrian insurgency to topple Bashar Assad, The Miami Herald reported.

    Now, experts have said it was only a matter of time before foreign fighters became aligned with rebel groups in Syria.

    "Obviously there've been cases of people [Guantánamo detainees] who've gone back to continue the fight," Aaron Zelin, editor of the jihadology blog from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said speaking to the paper.

    "Syria is probably the biggest jihad since the jihad in Afghanistan in the 1980s," Zelin said, and for "foreigners seen as more of a clean jihad" than attacking U.S. troops and targets," he said.

    "It's not surprising. But it is interesting," he added.

    The news came as figures were released this month revealing that nearly half of the 100,000 fighters battling President Bashar al-Assad's forces in Syria are aligned to hardline Islamist or jihadist groups.

    Some are even linked to al-Qaeda, according to the new analysis of the country's conflict.

    No, it doesn't.  Nice whiff, though.

    If he was truly a 'jihadist', then why did the bushies let him go...?

     

    If half of the Syrian rebels are "aligned" with jihadists, then presumably the other half are not.

    Who's side are you on, anyway...?

    it's no mystery that the rebels in Syria include Al Quaeda elements, those particular people are few, very demoralized and only are angry because they saw a Youtube video from America.....

    If Obama closed Gitmo and the people of Amherst were allowed to house the former wronged detainee yutes, this never would have happened.  Sometimes even terrorists need a hug and an EBT card.

    Repeat:  if he was really a terrorist, then why was he let go...?!

     

    Your islamaphobia is showing again.

    Pinnochio, it's a classic allright. Too bad about the nose, though.

    The Bushies identified and released those who were less dangerous!....Maybe Obama will release the rest of the jihadists, er , "innocent farmers",  arm them and send them to Syria...

    If they take over Syria, no doubt they will support coexistence, democracy and peace...it will be another Obama triumph like Egypt...

    A glass half full kind of guy, are you? Only half? 

    "Only" half of Syrian resistance is fanatical Al Qaeda Islamic radicals, who would commit mass terror against us and desire martyrdom... wonderful! Another Obama diplomatic triumph.
