Former Guantanamo detainee implicated in Benghazi attack

Jihadi must never, never, never be released once incarcerated.  Jihadi are dedicated to imposing Islam on all of humanity and will return to the fight if ever released.  They must be held in a dedicated facility to prevent them from attempting to convert common criminals to Islam.  For that matter, any common criminals who happen to be Muslim must be kept in a dedicated facility for the same reason.  Normal prisons are a primary location for the conversion of non-Muslims to Islam.


Former Guantanamo detainee implicated in Benghazi attack

U.S. officials suspect that a former Guantanamo Bay detainee played a role in the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and are planning to designate the group he leads as a foreign terrorist organization, according to officials familiar with the plans.

Militiamen under the command of Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of Ansar al-Sharia in the Libyan city of Darnah, participated in the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, U.S. officials said.

Witnesses have told American officials that Qumu’s men were in Benghazi before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, according to the officials. It’s unclear whether they were there as part of a planned attack or out of happenstance. The drive from Darnah to Benghazi takes several hours.

The State Department is expected to tie Qumu’s group to the Benghazi attack when it designates three branches of Ansar al-Sharia, in Darnah, Benghazi and Tunisia, as foreign terrorist organizations in the coming days.

In 2007, Qumu was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and sent to Libya, where he was detained. The Libyan government released him in 2008.
