The Long War Journal reported on Wednesday that Ibrahim Qosi, also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani, formerly of a cell in Guantanamo Bay, is now a leader with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) operating in Yemen.

Qosi was in a video released by AQAP this week.

Qosi joined AQAP in 2014 and became one of its leaders. Qosi and other AQAP commanders discussed their time waging jihad at length in the video, entitled “Guardians of Sharia.”

Islamic scholars ensure the “correctness” of the “jihadist project,” according to Qosi. And the war against America continues through “individual jihad,” which al Qaeda encourages from abroad. Here, Qosi referred to al Qaeda’s policy of encouraging attacks by individual adherents and smaller terror cells. Indeed, AQAP’s video celebrates jihadists who have acted in accordance with this call, such as the Kouachi brothers, who struck Charlie Hebdo’s offices in Paris earlier this year. The Kouachi brothers’ operation was sponsored by AQAP.

Qosi had been incarcerated at Gitmo for eight years when, in 2010, he cut a deal with the Obama Justice Department that led to his 2012 release. As The Right Scoop notes, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) 35% was strongly against Qosi’s release at the time.

He wasn’t the only one:

A leaked Joint Task Force Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO) threat assessment and other declassified files documented Qosi’s extensive al Qaeda dossier. In the threat assessment, dated Nov. 15, 2007, US intelligence analysts described Qosi as a “high” risk to the US and its allies.

“Detainee is an admitted veteran jihadist with combat experience beginning in 1990 and it is assessed he would engage in hostilities against US forces, if released,” JTF-GTMO found.

And that’s exactly what he did. Now he is cutting propaganda videos and is part of the leadership of the same terror group that he was part of when he was locked up.

A full account of his long terrorist career can be found from the Long War Journal here and in greater detail here.

So we’re letting terrorists in AND out now. Obama’s strategy is totally working you guys.
