You gotta wonder about Federal Judge Richard Leon.
He just ordered the release of Al-Qaeda terrorist Mohammed El-Gharani from Guantanamo Bay. Leon claims that testimony from other Gitmo detainees that El-Gharani was in Al-Qaeda is “unreliable.”
But El-Gharani, a Black Muslim from Chad, was captured in Pakistan when he was 14. Hmmm . . . I’m sure he was just, um, “visiting” Pakistan (by himself at age 14) for a little R & R, right? Or maybe it was to date one of those Paki “hotties” in hijabs and niqabs? Newsflash: Chadians don’t normally go to Pakistan as their primary tourist destination or vacation getaway of choice. Newsflash #2: Most Chadians don’t have a pot to whizz in, much less the funds to travel to Pakistan. There’s a reason El-Gharani “relocated” to Pakistan.
The judge seemed to be hung up on El-Gharani’s age. But that’s clueless. Anyone reading a paper or watching even the liberal-dominated mainstream news media knows that Al-Qaeda–and all Islamic terrorist groups–recruit them young.
The feds say that Gharani stayed at an al-Qaeda-affiliated guest house in Afghanistan, fought in the battle of Tora Bora following the US-led invasion, and served as a courier for senior al-Qaeda operatives.
But, you know, Judge Richard Leon, knows better. Here’s a clue for Hizzoner Judge Leon: Pakistan isn’t a regular tourist destination for Chadian teens. There is a reason this guy was in Pakistan, and it wasn’t a good one.
G-d save this sinking nation from these clueless, dangerous judges.
