The man at the helm of the USS Cole when it was attacked by an Al Qaeda cell in 2000 said last month’s release of a Guantanamo Bay detainee linked to the bombers denies justice to the 17 people killed aboard the ship.

Kirk Lippold, who was commanding officer of the U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer when suicide bombers aboard a small fishing boat blew a hole in the side of the ship, told FoxNews.com Mashur Abdallah Ahmed al Sabri’s release was a mistake.

Al Sabri, a 38-year-old Yemeni citizen who was born in Saudi Arabia, was at one point believed to have been a member of the terror cell behind the attack, although a subsequent assessment at Gitmo, like many done on detainees who have since been released, downplayed his role.

The Obama administration has acclerated the release of Guantanamo detainees to fulfill a campaign pledge to critics who say the suspected combatants are being held indefinitely without due process

There was never enough evidence to bring under a military commission in al Sabri’s case. But a September 2008 report by the Department of Defense assessed al Sabri as “high risk” and “likely to pose a threat to the U.S., its interests and allies.”

  1. in case you haven’t figured it out by now, obamahole IS a muslim through and through and has done everything possible to promote islam in our country by NOT standing up against their terrorist acts.
    he has done more damage to our country that is inconceivable, and he does not apologize for tearing our country down while promoting islam. will be glad when he is gone

  2. It’s because of the corrupt fat cat defense attorneys, who want to line their bulging pockets with BLOOD MONEY, that this GITMO fiasco is still hanging over our heads. These Gitmo vermin should have been tried and executed long ago on evidence of their WAR CRIMES against the peaceful citizens of the USA! And for that matter–Obama has proven himself to be ONE OF THEM!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
