From the Long War Journal:

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released a new video featuring a former Guantanamo detainee, Ibrahim Qosi, who is also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani.

In July 2010, Qosi plead guilty to charges of conspiracy and material support for terrorism before a military commission. His plea was part of a deal in which he agreed to cooperate with prosecutors during his remaining time in US custody. Qosi was transferred to his home country of Sudan two years later, in July 2012.

Qosi joined AQAP in 2014 and became one of its leaders. Qosi and other AQAP commanders discussed their time waging jihad at length in the video, entitled “Guardians of Sharia.”

Read the rest here.


  1. Qosi? Shouldn’t there be a “u” after the “Q”?

    Reminds me of the great quip (notice the “u” after the “q”) of Dennis Miller discussing the last minutes of Saddam’s sons Uday and Qusay (notice the “u”):

    Suddenly there erupted gunfire all over their compound. And Qusay started yelling “Uday! Uday!” — and Miller quips, “Them’s the Marines motherf*cker!”

  2. Whitewall says

    It seems our “commander in chief” has been all too eager to send top jihadists back to the war zone to kill Americans. That would make Obama an aid to enemy combatants.

    Meanwhile in the normal world, I see the French are taking the gloves off and Hollande has overseen the closing hundreds of mosques and discovering unsettling numbers of weapons and jihadist videos within many. French officials have used new authority to enter over 2200 homes and finding more of the same. Their methods under Hollande’s new authority would give Americans a shiver, but France is France. They are fighting an enemy they have allowed in only to find it has metastasized into a cancer that aims to conquer France from within. America and the rest of the West will soon follow in our own ways. Good for France.
