The left wants to close Gitmo and let everyone out. Here’s the problem with that. These guys go right back to the battlefield where they kill American soldiers and our allies.
The BBC reports:
British suicide bomber dies in attack on Iraqi forces in Mosul
A British IS fighter who died in a suicide bomb attack on Iraqi forces in Mosul is a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, the BBC understands.
The self-styled Islamic State group said two days ago that Abu-Zakariya al-Britani detonated a car bomb at an Iraqi army base in Tal Gaysum, south-west of Mosul.
He is believed to have been originally known as Ronald Fiddler.
Fiddler, 50 and from Manchester, was sent to Guantanamo Bay in 2002.
IS has now published a photograph of Fiddler, who was also known as Jamul-Uddin al-Harith before taking the nom-du-guerre Abu-Zakariya al-Britani.
He had been seized by US forces in Pakistan in 2001, before being sent to Guantanamo.
US interrogators found he provided useful information to them about the Taliban’s methods, and he was released after two years.
The Daily Mail reported Fiddler received a million pounds in compensation from the government when he came back to the UK.
The BBC has seen IS registration papers signed by Fiddler in April 2014 when he crossed into Syria from Turkey.
So he was given enough money to live comfortably without having to work yet he decided to rejoin the battle as a suicide bomber.
It’s just further evidence of why we shouldn’t close Gitmo or release any detainees.
