U.S. strike in Yemen kills former Guantanamo Bay detainee

What, do you expect me to fill you up with gloom and doom each time you visit this site?

 

I just won’t do it.

I have to post some things that will make the reader want to jump up and shout, “Yippie,”  

This one should do just that.

 

 

 

I know, it’s a big shocker that this particular prisoner returned to the battlefield only to get his ass blown up.

Better now than later.

Apparently, he liked playing in the sand and killing people more than he liked wearing a suit.

I get that, I wore a suit once too.

The only individual who would be shocked by this is the former commander-in-chief, Barrack Hussein Obama.

The Pentagon said on Monday that a March 2 strike against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen killed a former detainee from the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

 

 

 

“We can confirm the death of a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Yasir al Silmi,” said Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, adding al Silmi had been held at the detention center from 2002 to 2009.

In a statement, the Pentagon added that he was also known as Mohammed Tahar and was repatriated from Guantanamo Bay in 2009 to Yemen.

It can be safely said that there is “NO-Mo-MO”

 

 

Davis added that the United States had carried out more than 40 strikes against AQAP militants over the past five nights and would continue to target it.

Since a January commando raid, the United States has shown a desire to both strike al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and to recover from what U.S. officials acknowledge has been an intelligence shortfall about the group since Yemen’s civil war forced the closure of the U.S. embassy in 2015.
