Bombs Tip-off 'came from Former Al-Qaeda Member'


Jabr al-Faifi has been identified as a former Guantanamo Bay detainee


The crucial tip-off that led to the discovery of parcel bombs on two cargo planes came from a repentant al-Qaeda member, UK officials say.

Jabr al-Faifi handed himself in to authorities in Saudi Arabia two weeks ago, the officials told the BBC.

US officials have suggested that a Saudi bombmaker is the key suspect in last week's attempt to send the parcel bombs from Yemen to the US.

One bomb travelled on two passenger planes before being seized in Dubai.

The other almost slipped through Britain.

Jabr al-Faifi has been identified as a former detainee at the US detention centre at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

After leaving Guantanamo he went through a rehabilitation programme in Saudi Arabia and then rejoined al-Qaeda in Yemen before turning himself in to Saudi authorities, AFP news agency reports.



I have to wonder now just how long he expects to live.

Wonder why they released his name? Seems like they missed a good chance to have an al-Qaeda mole.

when names and photos of former crimminals who have "ratted" gets revealed, it is usually because said "crimminal' has gotten away with a whol lot of stuff for "ratting" at a previous time....getting a deal....an unfair deal.....and the governments/police/military decide to just out them when they are of no more use to them....even if they are doing something "good".

Re: Bombs Tip-off 'came from Former Al-Qaeda Member'

Some U.S. officials, however, told NBC News they doubt that al-Faifi provided the key tip, saying he had left a Yemen terror group too early to have specific knowledge of the plot. The White House and CIA refused to discuss what role, if any at all, al-Faifi played in discovering it.

Al-Faifi had reportedly rejoined Yemen's Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula faction after he had been released from Guantanamo and completed a rehabilitation program in Saudi Arabia.
IF this is true, then he is probably on one of their hit lists by now.

Who knows. Maybe he did, or maybe he figured out that he did not need 72 virgins, or found his virgins here on earth.

At any rate, he allegdedly rejoined the faction as soon as he was released from GITMO....yet he was rehabilitated in Saudi.
