Former Osama Bin Laden Cook Released From Gitmo And Returns To The Battlefield

Ibrahim al Qosi, who was once the cook of Usama Bin Laden and is now a leader and poster child for an Al Qaeda affiliate in Yemen. This particular case stands out because Al Qaeda in Yemen is the most active and able to hit the United States.

This is not the first time a former Guantanamo detainee has taken on a leadership role in Al Qaeda, and it is now a trend based on the data.

Officials identified the former detainee through a propaganda video for the terrorist group.Al Qosi in 2010, pled guilty to charges of conspiracy and providing material support to Al Qaeda. He was transferred to his home country of Sudan after two years of cooperating with prosecutors. As many as one in three former Guantanamo Bay detainees have returned or are suspected of having returned to the battlefield, American intelligence agencies say.
