U.S. Guantanamo Bay ex-prisoner now recruiting for DAISH (ISIL)

One of the Taliban commanders, transferred from U.S. prison at Guantanamo-Bay now working to establish a new DAISH Cell through local recruitment in Af-Pak region after several years of post-Gitmo life as a Taliban commander.


The militant commander at the center of the concerns in Helmand Province is a known Taliban leader, Mulla Abdul Rauf Khadim. He was detained at the Guantánamo Bay military prison for several years, then returned to the Taliban ranks after his release, serving as a provincial-level military commander. He has since fallen out with his fellow takfiri insurgents, and he is said by some to be calling for recruits to support him in his new role as the local leader of the ISIL (DAISH).

Another tribal elder, Hajji Sharin, said Mulla Khadim was pressing his old Taliban comrades to join. “He has asked them to renege from the takfiri Taliban, and he is working to bring DAISH to Kajaki,” Sharin said.

The long absence of the Taliban’s reclusive leader, Mulla Omar, is said to be driving discontent within the Taliban ranks. Their cohesiveness has increasingly come into question. There is a long list of those detained at Gitmo but on their release they continued terrorist attacks in Af-Pak region.

Independent observers are of the views that the U.S. intelligence and security officials have chalked out a new program to utilize their assets within takfiri Deobandi Taliban for same agenda with a different name. For that purpose, the U.S. intelligence continued their course by hiring Taliban commanders and their followers as reported in some books by former U.S. officials and investigative journalists about the war on Afghanistan during President Bush’s tenure.

In interviews, a man who called himself Hajji Mirwais said he had joined the takfiri Daish as a deputy under Mulla Khadim and claimed that their cell numbered 300 fighters. He said Mulla Khadim had been alienated by Mullah Omar’s long silence and had doubts about the Taliban’s exiled leadership.
Thomas Joscelyn profiled Khadim in the summer of 2010 , when the Gitmo alum publicly threatened to assassinate anyone cooperating with the NATO coalition in Afghanistan. That was just three years after Khadim’s release into Afghan custody, which lasted less than two years before his escape. A fellow Gitmo alum, Abdullah Zakir, was released at the same time and had already become a Taliban commander. Both reportedly joined the Taliban’s Quetta Shura Council, among the highest-ranking fighters in the Taliban.

That release took place under George W. Bush, of course, but came from considerable pressure from Democrats in control of Congress at the time to start releasing supposedly benign detainees. It’s that same pressure that’s driving Obama’s determination to empty Gitmo now, whether the detainees present a threat or not. As the odyssey of Khadim demonstrates, sending terrorists back to Afghanistan doesn’t end the threat at all — it simply metastasizes it.
