The jihadist leading the ISIS's bloody tear through the heart of Iraq was in US custody from 2005 to 2009. His name is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the only reason he is fighting today is because the Obama administration let him go. -

"...the only reason he is fighting today is because the Obama administration let him go."

So his only objective is for the Obama administration to put him back in the prison camp?

The human mind is a interesting thing. Some people may forget that during the early days the former administration offered bounties for Al Qaida fighters and Pakistan was collecting any male they could find and turned them over to the americans for their CASH payment.

So innocent men were put in the harshest prison in the US. Eventually when no proof could be established that they ever stepped foot on any battle field the former and current administration selectively allowed some prisoners off the Island.

So here we are. Innocent men who were imprisoned during the early years of the war are now turning against us.

The Powell doctrine applies here.

"...selectively allowed some prisoners off the Island."

About 26,000 of them.

The Obama administration is crumbling-----all the poor decision making of the past is now exposing incompetence to the max. Over 50% of the American people now deem him untrustworthy and dishonest and that % is climbing. It's an administration in chaos. Americans are at risk due to this mad man's decision making.

Yes, I do. Bush should have never gone into Iraq. Tony Blair just recently again tried to justify the Iraq war on the basis that Sadam should be removed----which wasn't the real reason we went into Iraq. It's all about following the money and as long as the neocons and corporate America pulls the strings, we'll continue to have the leadership of the likes of Bush, Obama, and the coming Phoenix, Hillary.

From the article:

One possible explanation is that he was one of thousands of suspected insurgents granted amnesty as the US began its draw down in Iraq.

Should have kept them all locked up after the war was over? How? Cram them into Gitmo?

Stop that, Derek!

You are ruining the rwing Maytag machine.

As usual, Derek and Corky proudly proclaim Obama is totally free of any responsibility. If a president is not responsible for the results of their policies then they are truly worthless.

So, it's your assertion that those thousands of prisoners in Iraq at the end of the war should all have gone to gitmo, including those like this guy who were nobodys at the time. That's what you would have done.

Now we know.

Did he commit a crime?

No?

Had to let him go. We are a nation of laws, not idealism.

This guy was one of 26,000 prisoners held at Camp Bucca. He was not considered a major figure during the four years he was held:

Are people here suggesting that the U.S. should have kept all 26,000 of these Iraqis all the way to 2014, on the chance one of them might become a leader later of a group we don't like?
