One of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit was released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.

American officials agreed to send the terrorist from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia, where he entered into an "art therapy rehabilitation program" and was set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials. ABC News described his enrollment in the art therapy program in a January report.

I couldn't find it posts any where, but its a little old.

If this is true man does Cheney got some explaining to do.

After criticising the response to the attack and saying it could have been prevented it turns out the guy was released under the Adminstration he worked for at the time, and we all know Dick was the one really running the show.

That's only if the article is true, time will tell.

And now they are getting ready to release even more of these people all over the US, thanks to El Pre$idente.

Can't we just accomodate and martyr them?

OK terrorist was detained for a period of time, and let go...

returned to plotting against American citizens, and it was a successful failure.

Successful in limiting our liberties at airports once again, and failed at getting the job done.

that seems like a win-lose-lose situation here.

hang him!

win for not losing any lives, loss at airports when it comes to security and civil liberties (also other excuses to keep the patriot act), and another loss because we had this guy detained once before, and let him go!

yea, some people got some explaining to do!
