The stupidity here is downright staggering. We are truly living in the Twilight Zone.
According to The Telegraph, in 2004, Muslim-convert Jamal al-Harith was released from Guantanamo Bay and successfully claimed compensation after saying British agents knew or were complicit in his mistreatment.
The terrorist carried out a suicide bombing this week.
He entered Syria via Turkey in 2014 to join ISIS. It has raised the possibility that taxpayers money has ended up into the hands of terrorists.
The Telegraph describes a photo released by ISIS of “him sitting inside the bomb car grinning broadly, with wires and what may be a detonation button in the background.”
A statement released by ISIS said, “The martyrdom-seeking brother Abu Zakariya al-Britani - may Allah accept him - detonated his explosives-laden vehicle on a headquarters of the Rafidhi army and its militias in Tal Kisum village, southwest of Mosul.”
Former Labour home secretary Lord Blunkett says MI5 and MI6 should investigate if £20million in compensation given to the former British detainees at Guantanamo Bay is being used for “nefarious reasons”.
