US detains 'top al-Qaeda figure'


news.bbc.co.uk

A top al-Qaeda figure suspected of having close ties to Osama Bin Laden has been taken to the US-run Guantanamo Bay detention camp, the Pentagon says.
The man, named as Muhammad Rahim, helped arrange Bin Laden's escape from his Tora Bora hideout in Afghanistan in 2001, US officials say.

He was transferred to the Pentagon from CIA custody earlier this week, a Pentagon spokesman said.

The CIA captured Rahim, said to be an Afghan national, in the summer of 2007.

Yes this is just another prisoner that has been captured by the CIA. However the story is making this one seem more important then your average bear. It is being said he is close to OBL, and his being out of the picture will be a set back to more then one terror organization. It should also be noted he was captured about a year ago and is now being transferred.
