Former Gitmo Detainee: 9/11 Hijackers Chosen in Part for U.S. ‘Accessibility and Security Cover’

A former Guantanamo detainee opened up in the new issue of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s Inspire magazine about the planning behind the 9/11 attacks and life with Osama bin Laden.

Al-Qaeda paymaster Ibrahim al Qosi, 55, was captured in Afghanistan in December 2001 and released to the Sudanese government by the Obama administration in July 2012.

Al Qosi, now going by Sheikh Khubaib al Sudani, joined AQAP in 2014 and appeared last year in a video encouraging lone jihad.
