Murderer Murders after Release for Religion of Peace

Detainee Released from Gitmo Turns ISIS Suicide Bomber

Jamal al-Harith, set free at request of British government, sets off car bomb in Mosul

by Kathryn Blackhurst | 22 Feb 2017 

The Islamic State suicide bomber who carried out an attack on an Iraqi army base near Mosul this week was a former Guantanamo Bay detainee the British government compensated with £1 million following his release in 2004.
Jamal al-Harith, born Ronald Fiddler and also known by the name of Abu-Zakariya al-Britani, converted to Islam in the 1990s before U.S. officials arrested him in Pakistan in 2001 on suspicion of sympathizing with the Taliban and potentially being a “high threat to the U.S.” who was “probably involved in a former terrorist attack against the U.S.,” The Telegraph reported. When al-Harith was sent to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba in 2002, the British government under then-Prime Minister Tony Blair lobbied extensively for his release.
“So much for Tony Blair’s assurances that this extremist did not pose a security threat.”
“No-one who is returned … will actually be a threat to the security of the British people,” then-Home Secretary David Blunkett said, according to The Telegraph.
