"I'm completely shocked," said Steven Killpack, a Utah public defender who represented Abdul Hafiz in a federal lawsuit challenging his detention, when told today of reports that his client was now fighting with the Taliban. "There was absolutely nothing that was brought to our attention that he constituted a danger to any Americans or that he had any ongoing affiliation with any group that was hostile to America. He never indicated any hostility to the American government." Killpack also said that, as far as he knew, Abdul Hafiz was not facing any outstanding charges in Afghanistan and he was being returned to his homeland to "resume his regular life."
Abdul Hafiz is the first gitmo detainee freed by the Obama administration that has returned to the battlefield.
His regular life is about killing infidels. Just ask the family of the International Red Cross worker he killed.
I am glad he's shocked. Me, not so much.
