Freed Al Qaeda Agent Was Part Of Proposed Swap For Two Jailed Americans

Before he was released from a U.S. maximum-security prison last week, a confessed al Qaeda sleeper agent was offered up in a potential prisoner swap that would have freed two Americans held abroad.

The Daily Beast has learned that the proposal was floated in July 2014 to the then-U.S. ambassador in Qatar by an individual acting on behalf of that country’s attorney general. According to two individuals with direct knowledge of the case, the proposition was made shortly after the Obama administration traded five Taliban fighters for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Those fighters were also sent to Qatar, where they’re to remain under government watch until later this year. U.S. officials have said they’re at risk of plotting further attacks against the United States.

The proposed swap involving the al Qaeda agent, Ali Saleh Al-Marri, raises troubling questions about whether the Bergdahl trade opened a kind of Pandora’s box, signaling to foreign governments that they can pressure the United States to make concessions on terrorism by trading American prisoners abroad for dangerous extremists held in the United States.

“I believe we must examine the administration’s decision in the case of Al-Marri and determine if his release is connected to negotiations of any kind,” Rep.

We have a terrorist lover in our WH.

Ever since Theodore Roosevelt, it has been the policy of the United States government to never, ever negotiate with enemies, unless it involves surrender. Since Ronald Reagan, the policy has been to never, ever negotiate with terrorists under any condition. Well back last June all of that has changed. President Obama has become the first President to do what no other President has done: He negotiated with terrorists to release Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl and now everything's changed thanks to his traitorous ass.

Enemies of America now know that a catured or kidnapped American has monetary or trade value. Look for attempts now to kidnap Americans.
