Info on Al-Qaeda and vampirean sentiments from jihadists at Gitmo. From the LA Times, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
According to the report, captives have described how Al Qaeda trained them to spread deadly poisons, and at other times armed them with grenades stuffed inside soda cans, bombs hidden in pagers and cellphones and wristwatches that could trigger remote control explosions on a 24-hour countdown.
The report also showed that not all those being held were suspected of being front-line soldiers and that 1 in 10 of the captives were well-educated “” often at U.S. colleges “” in fields such as medicine and law.
What was that again about education solving this problem?
More than 20 detainees have been positively identified as Osama bin Laden’s personal bodyguards and one as his close “spiritual advisor,” according to the report. Another is listed as the “probable 20th 9/11 hijacker” “” a Saudi man named Mohamed al-Kahtani who made it to Orlando, Fla., before being deported just a month before the Sept. 11 attacks.
One detainee vowed to his captors that U.S. citizens in Saudi Arabia “will have their heads cut off.” Another prisoner, this one with strong ties to Bin Laden, the Taliban and the Chechen mujahedin leadership, said of Americans everywhere: “Their day is coming”¦. One day I will enjoy sucking their blood.”
Here is more about how US schools are educating those who would destroy us:
And more than 10% of those housed at Guantanamo Bay, it turns out, have college degrees, many from U.S. schools, and were educated as physicians, pilots, engineers, translators and lawyers.
One detainee, who “has threatened guards and admits enjoying terrorizing Americans,” studied at Texas A&M University for 18 months and also took courses in English at the University of Texas in Austin, the summary said.
Another, identified as an Al Qaeda weapons supplier, studied at the Embry-Riddle flight school in Arizona and earned a graduate degree in avionics management.
Before Sept. 11, the FBI had picked up indications that Bin Laden was sending flight students to Arizona to learn how to commandeer U.S. aircraft.
The summary also weighed the risk of releasing detainees, pointing out that “we have been able to identify at least 10 by name” who were sent home before hearings even began last fall, only to rejoin the fight against the United States.
Still more detainees remain eager to break out of Guantanamo Bay, and have told guards “all Americans should die.” One warned guards that one day he would “come to their homes and cut their throats like sheep.” He said he would use the Internet to “search for their names and faces.”
