Two of Al Qaeda’s former explosives experts were just transferred out of Guantanamo Bay and sent to Senegal, the Defense Department confirmed Monday, marking the latest detainees to be shipped out of the prison camp despite the risk they could return to the battlefield.
The two Libyan former detainees were separately listed as threats to U.S. interests in Department of Defense documents obtained by WikiLeaks and The New York Times.
Salem Abdu Salam Ghereby is believed to have fought coalition forces at Osama bin Laden’s Tora Bora complex in Afghanistan “and was associated with senior members of Al Qaeda.” Omar Khalif Mohammed Abu Baker Mahjour Umar was assessed to be likely to “immediately seek out prior associates and reengage in hostilities and extremist support activities” upon his release, according to a 2008 government document.
