11 Gitmo recidivists on Saudi’s Most Wanted List
I know. You’re shocked, shocked:
A Saudi government spokesman says 11 of the Saudis on its recently issued most wanted list are former Guantanamo detainees.
Gen. Mansour al-Turki of the Saudi Interior Ministry told The Associated Press on Wednesday that among the 85 people listed by the government, 11 had been released from the U.S. detention facility in Cuba and passed through government-sponsored rehabilitation programs.

US President Barack Obama has pledged to close Guantanamo Bay. Susan Harris Rimmer and Eve Lester ask whether Australia has responsibilities to the detainees upon their release.
“Although Australia may not be legally obliged to render assistance to the US, there are valid humanitarian reasons why the Rudd government should play a role and accept some detainees should the Obama administration extend such a request.”Â More…

11 ex-Gitmo prisoners flee the Saudi “rehabilitation program” and join up with terrorist groups
Not enough to sate jihadi impulses
ApparentlyÂ PlayStationsÂ andÂ finger-paintsÂ are not enough to change the minds of terrorists concerning the jihad. Thus, even if itÂ wereÂ true that “jihad”Â reallyÂ meansÂ “being a better student, a better colleague, a better business partner. Above all, to control one’s anger” — this story indicates that we canÂ at leastÂ rule out trying to redirect the jihad from targeting infidels to, say, “Jihad-of-the -Nintendo” or the “Crayon Jihad.”
“11 ex-Gitmo prisoners on Saudi wanted list,” fromÂ UPI, February 4: via JW
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Feb. 4 (UPI) — Eleven Saudis released from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are on a list of 85 wanted terrorism suspects made public by the Saudi Interior Ministry, officials said.Â
Saudi officials said the 11 former Guantanamo Bay detainees underwent a Saudi rehabilitation program for former jihadists and are thought to have fled the country, joining terrorist groups elsewhere, The New York Times (NYSE:NYT) reported Wednesday.[…]
Unclear was whether any of the 11 former Guantanamo Bay detainees participated in terrorist attacks, the Times said.
Well, if they are joining “terrorist groups elsewhere,” it sure seems that, either way, they areÂ nowÂ actively planning terrorist attacks.
U.S. counterterrorism officials have confirmed thatÂ Said Ali al-Shihri, a Saudi released from Guantanamo in November 2007, was the deputy leader of the Yemeni branch of al-Qaida and suspected of being involved in a deadly attack on the U.S. Embassy in Yemen last year.
