Gitmo CartoonThe Pentagon has confirmed that a Kuwaiti released from the US detention camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, three years ago carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq last month.

Abdallah Salih al-Ajmi and two other Kuwaitis are reported by their families to have taken part in an attack on Iraqi security forces in Mosul, a northern city that is the scene of intense fighting.

Although the families did not specify a date, seven people were killed in a suicide attack in Mosul on April 26.

In answer to the title’s question, why yes, she was. Along with these five nitwits and the appeasement monkey Obama-wamma-slamma.

What do all you weak-kneed idjits have to say now?

This is an appropriate place for the sage advice of Jeffrey Breinholt:

It is easy for human rights organizations to criticize Gitmo. The harder problem is finding an acceptable solution to detain terrorists willing to give their lives to kill us. So far, the best one seems to be the Military Tribunals, which might have offered a better alternative than repatriating Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi to Kuwait, where could try to kill those who helped liberate his home country on behalf of those who invaded it.

Six Somalis accused of taking a luxury yacht’s crew hostage have arrived in Paris on a military plane to face questioning, judicial sources said.

They were detained on Friday by French commandos in a helicopter raid soon after pirates released 30 hostages from the French yacht, the Ponant. The six Somalis will be questioned at French police headquarters.

Now that’s funny. The Parisians better not flush any Korans down the commode or Amnesty International will be all in their ass.

The Marine Corps has dropped its case against a serviceman accused in the killing of 24 Iraqis at Haditha in 2005.

The Corps has given full immunity to Lance Corporal Stephen Tatum who’d been accused of involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault in the killings.

And yet another case dropped, this one to gain Tatum’s testimony against Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, whose civilian attorney says the dismissal is a demonstration of how weak the government’s case has become.

Yeah, whatever. It also demonstrates the need for The Despicable Murtha to issue another apology. Not that he ever will. I’m just saying is all.

“The Iraqi Perspectives Project — Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents.”

Saddam supported groups that either associated directly with al-Qaeda (such as the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, led at one time by bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri) or that generally shared al-Qaeda’s stated goals and objectives.

Captured documents reveal that the regime was willing to co-opt or support organizations it knew to be part of al-Qaeda — as long as that organization’s near-term goals supported Saddam’s long-term vision.

Well, I guess this settles it then; Researchers at Harvard say that publicly voiced doubts about the U.S. occupation of Iraq have a measurable “emboldenment effect” on insurgents there.

Periods of intense news media coverage in the United States of criticism about the war, or of polling about public opinion on the conflict, are followed by a small but quantifiable increases in the number of attacks on civilians and U.S. forces in Iraq, according to a study by Radha Iyengar, a Robert Wood Johnson Scholar in health policy research at Harvard and Jonathan Monten of the Belfer Center at the university’s Kennedy School of Government.

The increase in attacks is more pronounced in areas of Iraq that have better access to international news media, the authors conclude in a report titled “Is There an ‘Emboldenment’ Effect? Evidence from the Insurgency in Iraq.”


That conclusion is patently obvious. To most sane rational thinkers. Which discounts any possibility Murtha, Durbin, Shillary, Reid or Pelosi will ever come to the same conclusion.
