Ronald Fiddler AKA Abu-Zakariya al-Britani was detained in Gitmo and later awarded about 1.2 million dollars for his “mistreatment”.
Fiddler had traveled a lot around the Muslim world, and is said to have converted to Islam in his late 20’s. He was detained in Guantanamo from 2001 until 2004 for his suspicious travels and his knowledge of the Taliban because of his time spent in their jail.
After Fiddler’s release the UK awarded him 1.2 million dollars for the mistreatment while he was held in Gitmo. February 19th he carried out a suicide bombing at an army base in Tal Gaysum, ISIS has taken responsibility for it and released Fiddler’s picture.
In 2015 in an interview with Yahoo, Obama claimed that “only a handful” of Gitmo detainees go back to the life of terrorism.
This is just a flat out lie.
The Gateway Pundit reports: In December Stephen Hayes at The Weekly Standard dissected Obama’s latest shocking lie.
“It doesn’t match up at all. I think what we saw from the president there was sort of aggressive, breath-taking dishonesty.The president may not know how many Guantanamo detainees have been released but we do. 653. Of which, 196 are either confirmed or suspected recidivists. That is not a handful. That is about 40 handfuls. That’s far more than the president is suggesting. Beyond that the president said the United States has released only low-level individuals. Again, unequivocally false.”
According to Obama’s own Director of National Intelligence, 117 former detainees are confirmed of returning to terror. 79 more detainees are suspected of returning to the fight.
More misinformation being blasted across the media is minimizing the real threat of ISIS. Obama and all liberal democrats are just inviting them right into America!
