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.
