Former bin Laden cook reaches secret sentencing deal with U.S. government
SO AFTER 8 YEARS HE FINALLY CONFESSED….TO BEING THE COOK. I BET OSAMA BIN LADIN IS WORRIED NOW!!!!
GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA — A former cook for Osama bin Laden’s entourage in Afghanistan has reached a agreement with the U.S. government that will allow him to serve any sentence at a minimum-security facility at Guantanamo Bay, according to statements by lawyers at a military commission on Monday.
SO WE HAVE THE MINIMUM SECURITY WING AT GUANTANAMO BAY…..FOR MINIMUM RISK TERRORISTS?
Ibrahim al-Qosi, a 50-year-old native of Sudan, who worked for bin Laden for years before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy and material support(material support being, he supplied the hummus and some nibbles) for terrorism as part of a pre-trial agreement. The case marked the first conviction at Guantanamo Bay under President Obama, whose administration had promised that reformed military commissions would offer greater due process and more transparency.
WELL DONE OBAMA WELL WORTH KEEPING ALL THOSE TROOPS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN!!
But the government and the defense, with the blessing of Judge Nancy J. Paul, an Air Force lieutenant colonel, have sealed the newly reached agreement, including the maximum sentence that Qosi can serve.
A spokesman for the military commission’s prosecutors, Navy Capt. David Iglesias, refused to discuss the agreement or explain why it was kept secret, except to say the plea raises “security issues” and is to the benefit of both Qosi and the government.
The sealed agreement is “certainly a novelty to me,” said Gary Solis, a former military judge who has presided over more than 700 court martials. Solis, who teaches law of war at Georgetown University and is observing the commissions for the National Institute of Military Justice, said there was obviously a quid pro quo that led both prosecution and defense to agree to it.
SO MUCH FOR TRANSPARENCY……
Only three detainees were convicted at Guantanamo under the Bush administration, and two of those have since been released.
IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MAKE US FEEL SAFE? …OR MAKE IT ALL WORTH WHILE?2 NATIONS DESTROYED FOR 3 TERRORISTS ,2 OF WHOM ARE OBVIOUSLY “REFORMED”…..OR DO THEY MEAN THESE 2? CURRENTLY RUNNING TERRORISM IN YEMEN,…. BUT WE BELIEVE WITHOUT ACCESS TO HUMMUS!!!
According to ABC news, the Al Qaeda leaders running the insurgency in Yemen were released from Guantanamo, although two of the highest ranking known terrorists there, without trial.
Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari, were sent to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of detainees who were released from American custody.
Qosi was among the first four detainees charged before a military commission when charges were brought against him in 2004. Prosecutors alleged at that time that Qosi had managed charitable donations for al-Qaeda and a bin Laden-owned company.
Those allegations were dropped when Qosi was recharged in 2007
HMMMMMM, DROPPED CHARGES. NOTHING TO DO WITH GEORGE w.BUSH RUNNING A COMPANY ,ARBUSTO OIL, WITH OSAMA BIN LADINS BROTHER?
OR GEORGE H.W.BUSH SHARING BUSINESS WITH OSAMA BIN LADINS FATHER IN THE CARLYLE GROUP?!BTW THESE WHERE NOT CHARITABLE ORGANISATIONS!!!! MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST ARREST THEM AND WATERBOARD THEM FOR 8 YEARS AND SEE WHAT THEY CONFESS TOO?…..911 MAYBE?
Qosi agreed to a statement of facts that he followed bin Laden from Sudan to Afghanistan in 1996.
OSAMA WAS STILL A CIA ASSET AT THIS TIME.
In May 1996, under increasing pressure on Sudan, from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the United States, bin Laden returned to Jalalabad, Afghanistan aboard a chartered flight, and there forged a close relationship with Mullah Mohammed Omar.In Afghanistan, bin Laden and Al-Qaeda raised money from “donors from the days of the Soviet jihad”, and from the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
“Let me repeat that: The Clinton administration, along with Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, created the Taliban…” Rohrabacher
If this seems strange to you then look closely at the picture and you will see Congressman Rohrabacher on the right dressed in Taliban garb. Mr. Karzai’s elder brother was a Taliban and both used to live in Quetta Pakistan. Part of his family still lives there. Mr. Hamid Kiimself is a self-professed Taliban who was proposed as the UN Ambassador of the Taliban government. During this days as a Conoco representative Mr. Karzai reportedly received lots of money from Enron and Conocoto get the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan pipeline off the ground
However, Selig Harrison of the DC-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars recently told a conference in London that the CIA created the Taliban “monster” by providing some $3 billion for the ultra-fundamentalist militia in their 1994-6 drive to power.” Times of India, March 7, 2001

The Taliban also visited Governor Bush’s ranch in Texas
AND AFTER ALL THESE MEETING AND BUSINESS DEALINGS , WE TRACK DOWN THE COOK INVOLVED!!!!
Qosi said that he served as a head cook at an al-Qaeda compound in Kandahar. After the Sept. 11 attacks, Qosi fled to Pakistan, where he was picked up the local authorities and handed over to American officials. He has been held at Guantanamo for more than eight years
HOPEFULLY HE WILL BE SHARING HIS CONFINEMENT WITH THAT OTHER EVIL BASTARD, HITLERS COOK!!!
PROVIDING SAUERKRAUT FOR NAZI MEETINGS!!…AND WHAT THAT MAN COULD DO WITH COCKTAIL SAUSAGES WAS ENDANGERING HUMANITY ITSELF!!!!
HOPEFULLY WE KNOW HAVE A FULL AND UP-TO-DATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE AL-QUEADA COOKBOOK!!! WE’LL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING….FOR DINER
WE CAN ALL SLEEP SAFER KNOWING THIS….
MILITARY INTELIGENCE IS A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS
OR MAYBE HE IS SOME SORT OF CONSPIRACY COOK 😉
