Who Could Have Seen This Coming? Former Club Gitmo Guest Carries Out Suicide Bombing in Iraq

I hope our friends at the ACLU rest comfortably tonight, knowing their efforts sprung this maggot so he could go back to doing what he was meant to do: murder innocent people.

The blood is on their hands.
A Kuwaiti man released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay in 2005 has carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq, his cousin told Al Arabiya television on Thursday.

A friend of Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi in Iraq informed his family that Abdullah carried out the attack in Mosul, his cousin Salem told the Dubai-based television channel.

"We were shocked by the painful news we received this afternoon ... through a call from one of the friend's of martyr Abdullah in Iraq," said Salem al-Ajmi in a telephone interview aired by Arabiya.

He did not say when the suicide bombing happened.

Abdullah had been missing for two weeks and his family learned he left Kuwait illegally for Syria, he said. Abdullah had sent messages to his wife from Iraq.

Abdullah, 30, had a son after he was released from the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the United States holds suspected terrorists, Salem said.

There were no indications Abdullah had any plans to join insurgents in Iraq although he became less sociable in the period before he disappeared, he said.
I located his photo via this site, with his bio.
Abdullah Saleh Ali Al Ajmi -- is a 25 year-old lance corporal in the Kuwaiti army. He is a member of the apolitical Tableeghi sect. His family says that he decided to take a leave of absence from the army in order to “rescue the needy and the poor” in Pakistan. A month after he left Kuwait, he contacted his family to tell them that he was successfully carrying out aid work. The next his parents heard from him was a Red Cross postcard from Guantanamo.
Someone was kind enough to set up a Wikipedia page for him. His lawyer is also there.

I wonder if he'll have anything to say.
