SAUDI authorities have rearrested nine Islamist militants, including former inmates of the US military detention centre at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, the interior ministry said.Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler Obama was unavailable for comment.
The ministry yesterday said the nine Saudi nationals had undergone a rehabilitation program for Islamist militants arrested in the kingdom and for returnees from the notorious US prison.
"Since the start of the rehabilitation program, nine people, who had taken part in the program, have been rearrested," a ministry official told state news agency SPA.
"Some of them had returned from Guantanamo," the official said.
The comments come in the wake of reports that two men who had been released from Guantanamo and went through the rehabilitation program had resurfaced in Yemen and had rejoined al-Qaeda.
Speaking of Yemen, there was an attack on a checkpoint at the U.S. Embassy. Surely just some misunderstanding.
Gunmen in a car exchanged fire Monday with police at a checkpoint near the U.S. Embassy in Yemen's capital, an Interior Ministry official said, hours after the embassy received threats of a possible attack.Recall in the 18-month buildup to the Iraq invasion all we heard from the left was we were "rushing to war"?
No one was injured and the two gunmen fled the scene, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not permitted to have his name made public. He said three suspects in the area were detained.
It was not clear who was behind the shooting, but al-Qaida has for years maintained a strong presence in the country, the ancestral homeland of Osama bin Laden.
Why are we rushing to close down Guantanamo Bay when it's plainly obvious these monsters are there for a reason?
