From left to right: Abu Faraj al-Libi, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, Mustafa al-Hawsawi, Waleed bin Attash are among Gitmo’s most dangerous detainees now permitted to communicate with their families via Skype or pre-recorded video.
Permitted to transmit and receive correspondence via the IRS,the Obama administration is now allowing fifteen “high value” of the most dangerous Guantanamo Bay detainees to phone home (double face palm) via Skype. H/t Stars and Stripes.
Allegedly monitoring both sides of the conversations, the calls are being strictly monitored. Yeah sure.
A U.S. defense official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss prison operations, confirmed the calls took place in ‘near real time’ and were subject to security screening.
‘We have concluded that increasing family contact for the High Value Detainees can be done in a manner that is consistent with both humanitarian and security interests,’ Lt. Col. Myles Caggins III, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement. He said Pentagon officials now planned to expand the calls to the 13 remaining high-value detainees….
Among the jihadists permitted to phone home or send video-recorded messages to their families are:
Abu Faraj al-Libi (Mustafa Faraj Muhammad Muhammad Masud al-Jadid al-Uzaybi), a Libyan national and proof that enhanced interrogation techniques do work, “played a key role in finding ‘safe havens’ for bin Laden and lived in the military town where he was finally found.”
Accused of orchestrating a 2006 plot to bomb an airplane, Al-Libi was operational chief of al-Qaeda with ties to both Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri (Abd al-Rahim Hussein Muhammed Abdu Al-Nashiri) is the mastermind of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in which 17 U. S. sailors were killed and 39 injured. Nashiri, a Saudi Arabian also had ties to OBL.
Mustafa al-Hawsawi’s (Mustafa Ahmad al-Hawsawi) legal counsel asked that their client on trial for his role in the 9/11 Islamic terrorists attacks be permitted a phone call with his family.
Al-Hawsawi, a Saudi Arabian, was a financier of the September 11th Islamic terrorist attacks and member of Al Qaeda.
Waleed bin Attash (Walid Muhammad Salih bin Roshayed bin Attash) from Yemen, believed to be a former bodyguard to OBL ran an al-Qaeda training camp in Logar, Afghanistan, where two of the September 11th hijackers were trained.
The general population of detainees at Gitmo has been phoning home on landlines since 2008 and Skype since 2009.
Plans are in the works to allow at least ten other of Gitmo’s most dangerous detainees to phone home.
In the meantime, the traitors representing them (legal counsel) are now complaining that the restrictions placed on these jihadists hamper communications.
We have a bunch of idiots running this country.
Barack Obama’s jackboot of tyranny is depriving more Americans of their liberties every day. At the same time, he lavishes enemies of the Republic with that which he denies citizens.
