Why have so many former Guantanamo prisoners returned to the jihad? Because nothing was done at Gitmo to disabuse them of the jihad ideology — and that is because that ideology is little understood and even less taken into account by policymakers. “Abdullah Mehsud dead: spokesman,” from the Daily Times of Pakistan, with thanks to Michelle Malkin and JS:
PESHAWAR: A spokesman for wanted tribal militant Abdullah Mehsud claimed on Sunday that the kidnapper of two Chinese engineers “died of his wounds” after a bullet pierced his chest in an Army commandos-led operation in North Waziristan Agency on March 5.
Abdullah died of his wounds on Thursday (March 10) at an unknown location, the spokesman told tribal journalist Sailab Mehsud who “Abdullah wished to be called first to give the news of his martyrdom.”
The spokesman for the one-legged militant, former Guantanamo Bay inmate, said the 28-year-old Abdullah was hit by bullets in his chest during the March 5 operation in which army claimed to have killed two foreigners and arrested 11 others.
