It seems to be a logical turn of events. A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner is now making videos for the enemy. But, this is not what the Democrats would have you to believe. This is not a man mistreated and now out for revenge. Rather, this man did everything in his power to prove that he was ready for a life of peace and quiet.
As I Reported, Ibrahim al Qosi is back in the fight against the West. But, he is not just working as a soldier, he is speaking to encourage jihad.

Ex-Guantanamo detainee Ibrahim al Qosi has become a prominent fixture in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) propaganda since early December, when he first revealed that he is a senior leader in the group. Qosi most recently delivered a two-part critique of the Saudi monarchy, entitled “A Message to Our People in the Land of the Two Holy Mosques.”
Now, rather than just encouraging Muslims to join al-Qaeda in repelling the “Crusaders,” he is calling for the overthrow of Saudi Arabia. This is a shift in tactics. A shift most likely brought about by Saudi military involvement in Yemen.
Qosi speaks about Al Qaeda’s jihad against the Saudi monarchy, claiming Usama bin Laden was motivated by the U.S. government’s “occupation” of the country’s two holiest sanctuaries, the journal reported.
Qosi’s call for an end to the Saudi-U.S. alliance came at nearly the same time an Al Qaeda newsletter published a 9/11 “insider account” from a former AQAP leader who was killed by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in June.
Unlike ISIS, al-Qaeda has not been involved in toppling governments in Muslim countries. They have concentrated on fighting the West in general and America in particular. This shift could be motivated by the success experienced by ISIS. Al Qaeda also may be thinking of shrinking America’s military footprint in the Middle East.
Either way, this points to another failed Democratic policy.
