The face of the Muslim bomber that killed and maimed a bus load of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria?Topics: Terrorism, Understanding Islam
This is alleged (Bulgarian officials deny he's the bomber) Bulgarian bus bomber Mehdi Ghezali, a Swedish citizen, with Algerian and Finnish origins. He boarded the bus at the airport of Bulgaria's Black Sea city of Burgas carrying a fake US passport and a drivers license from the state of Michigan.
This is alleged Bulgarian bus bomber Mehdi Ghezali back in 2009.
Bulgarian media on Thursday named the suicide bomber who blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists, killing five Israelis and a local bus driver, in the Black Sea resort of Burgas on Wednesday as Mehdi Ghezali.In what amounts to a jaw-dropping revelation, as Dan Riehl points out ... the lower image above didn't come from the media today. It came from a September 19, 2009 blog post at Immigrationspolitiks, which appears to be a Swedish blog, from which we learn that the bastard had been previously safely locked away at Guantanamo Bay before the U.S. (under President Bush) stupidly released him to Sweden with Sweden's promise to monitor Ghezali and Sweden's agreement to stop him from continuing "terrorist activities" (he was delivered to Sweden on the government's private Gulfstream jet). Now, the suicide-bombing Muslim son-of-a-bitch is dead, but not before blowing up a bus and taking several innocent lives with him ... and the details of what was known about Mehdi Ghezali and the conditions of his release that clearly were ignored will astound you:
There was no independent confirmation of the veracity of the information. The reports surfaced soon after Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had publicly accused Hezbollah, directed by Iran, of responsibility for the bombing. The Prime Minister's Office made no comment on the reports.
The Swedish government was forced to promise the U.S. to monitor Mehdi Ghezali. Sweden also agreed to stop him from continuing "terrorist activities".In a nutshell, assuming that it is indeed Ghezali that's the suicide bomber, the U.S. had Ghezali safely locked away from the world, then naively and stupidly gave him up to a passivist governemnt to keep him from "terrorist activity" which they clearly failed to do, and as a result the Muslim was left free to do exactly what he should have been expected to do and indeed did ... committed "terrorist activity" by murdering innocent civilians.
The United States considered Ghezali as a threat, Pierre-Richard Prosper, a former official with the US Department of State, told the Expressen.
"There is a group of prisoners who will not be released unless we got those promises. The person we are talking about belongs to this group."
The former Guantanamo Bay terrorist, Mehdi Ghezali, was arrested on August 28 along with two other Swedish Muslims, Munir Awad, and Safia Benaouda, in Pakistan and have been since imprisoned by the Pakistani intelligence service ISI.
Swedish-Finnish-Algerian Muslim terrorist, Ghezali, is suspected of terrorist activity and illegal entry to Pakistan.
Pierre-Richard Prosper negotiated personally with the Swedish Foreign Ministry on the conditions for releasing the Swede from Guantanamo Bay five years ago. Now that Ghezali has been arrested again for terrorist activity, the former US Department of State official divulges the US' demands for his release to Sweden:
"We requested the Swedish government to take the action it deemed appropriate to try to ensure that Ghezali will not resume the activities he have previously engaged in, " said Pierre-Richard Prosper to Expressen
"A dangerous person"
He is very clear on one point. Ghezali was caught by the U.S. authorities because he is a dangerous person.
"There was a group of prisoners who were not released unless we got those promises. And the person we are talking about belonged to the group. I personally handled the negotiations. They would not be released unless we were promised that they would, among other things, be monitored," Pierre Richard Prosper told the Expressen newspaper.
The requirement was considered extra heavy when it came to this group of Guantanamo detainees.
"It was our policy to rely on the host country's government to take the necessary steps to prevent these people from continuing terrorist activities, " he told Expressen.
Were these agreements in writing and formal?
"There were formal agreements. We exchanged, for example, diplomatic notes in which we asked the governments to take appropriate measures, and the governments gave us the promise that these measured would be taken."
"Only after we were satisfied, were the Muslim terrorists transferred to home countries." Prosper did not reveal what governments he were talking about, and was Sweden one of those countries.
"In general, governments would give us an idea of what steps they would take, " Prosper explained.
Does not want to comment
Laila Freivalds, who was then Minister of Justice in the KU - the Constitutional Committee - denied that the U.S. was given the promises Mr. Prosper claims for the release of Ghezali from the Guantanamo Bay prison.
The Foreign Ministry's press officer, Cecilia Juhlin, said last night that the Foreign Ministry will not comment on the contents of the correspondence about Ghezali case between the U.S. and Sweden that is stored in the Foreign Ministry
And although one might assume that Ghezali's murderous and senseless act was more associated with his Islamic ideology and al-Qaeda, than Iran and its Islamic ideology ... as Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had publicly declared ... Thomas Jocelyn wrote about Ghezali in December 2010, and according to Jocelyn, before being arrested in Pakistan, Ghezali had been imprisoned in Portugal, lived in an al Qaeda safehouse, and visited Iran.
Meanwhile, as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is suggesting that Iran and it's terrorist surrogate, Hezbollah, is responsible for the bombing of a bus in Bulgaria carrying Israeli students ... Bulgarian officials are now telling ABC News that Ghezali is not the suicide bomber.
