UPDATED: Bulgarians: Bomber Was a Jihadist Who Spent Time in Guantanamo

SWEDEN GUANTANAMO SWEDE

UPDATE: 7/19/12 10:46PM Sources are indicating that the Swedish national that was held in Guantanamo is not the Burgas bomber. As soon as we know more, we’ll update the report.

 

Bulgarian TV has announced that Medi Muhammad Ghezali, the suicide bomber who killed seven people on Wednesday, five of them Israelis, was member of the International Jihad who spent a year in Guantanamo Bay prison.

This may mean that PM Netanyahu’s accusation that Iran was behind the attack could be wrong.

Ghezali was arrested in Pakistan in 2009 along with his wife and a group of foreigners, including seven Turks, according to NRG.

Bulgarian officials are currently denying that Ghezali was the bomber.

  1. Wow, who would have thought that this terrorist would revert back to his old ways! Turn them all loose obama where they can spread their islamic form of religion, MURDERING INNOCENT PEOPLE!

  2. Vou passar, é importante.

  3. You posted an update to the update above: Sources are indicating that the Swedish national that was held in Guantanamo is not the Burgas bomber. As soon as we know more, we’ll update the report. I know it is going into Shabbat, but do you have any further clarification on this. I reported it on my page "Lest We Forget" and would like to follow up…

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    breitbart.com is blaming "Leftists" for the release of the Swedish national held in Guantanamo and therefore the bombing. There are two problems with this: George Bush was President at the time of the release, and he never listened to Leftists, and in any case it isn't clear who is the culprit. We should all wait until the results of the investigation reveals who was behind this dastardly act.

  5. Is the rationale really that we should keep people in Guantanamo forever just in case they might later commit a crime? That's epically stupid.
