Former Guantanamo detainee blows himself up

A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner who took up arms alongside the Taliban after he was released from detention has blown himself up to avoid capture, Pakistani security forces said today.

Abdullah Mehsud killed himself with a hand grenade after he was cornered by troops at a house in the south-western Pakistani town of Zhob. He was wanted for the kidnapping of two Chinese engineers in 2004.

"My information is that (he) killed himself," said Atta Mohammed, the head of the police in Zhob. "Thanks be to God that only he was blown up and our men were safe."

Mehsud, 32, was released from the US detention centre in Cuba after two years in 2004 but immediately went back to violence when the Pakistani government began an offensive against the Taliban in the troubled region along the border with Afghanistan.

The one-legged militant was the leader of a group of fighters that kidnapped two Chinese engineers working on a hydroelectric dam project in South Waziristan. Pakistan was forced to apologise to China after one of the hostages died in the subsequent rescue attempt. Mehsud escaped after the incident and has been hunted by Pakistani forces ever since.

Wild Thing's comment........


Liberals that want to close the Guantanamo base, should be forced to host the “guests” in their home and sign a form indicating liability for their “guests”.

I wonder if he got his virgins--or was that Virginians?
I'll bet he's running around someplace very hot and whining that he was mislead by his religion.
Too late now.
Bye-bye and thanks for playing the game--you lose.

A good Abdullah is a good Abdullah.

I wonder how much each enemy detainee in Guantanamo costs us to hold. Maybe if each one was given a grenade, the cost would go down dramatically.

FANTASTIC!! It spares us the cost of housing, food, and health care for this swine.
