This is what should have happened to all the released Gitmo prisoners.
Former Guantanamo detainee, Taliban commander and recent ISIS militant Mullah Abdul Rauf has been declared dead on Monday by Afghanistan authorities. He was killed along with five others by a drone strike, Associated Press reports.
Rauf was reportedly driving a car loaded with ammunition and transporting five other militants when the missile hit.
After being captured in 2001 because of his alleged status as a high-ranking Taliban leader, Rauf remained locked away in Guantanamo until 2007. During his stay, Rauf repeatedly tried to downplay his involvement with the Taliban, insisting that he was nowhere near senior leadership and was only assigned to deliver bread.
“If I go back right now and there is Karzai’s government, all I want to do is go there and work on my land…If they do not mind, I’d love to go there and help them out with the new government and work for them,” Rauf stated during an administrative review board hearing at Guantanamo.
After 2007, he was transported to Afghanistan. The Afghans released him from custody in 2009, and soon after, he joined ISIS and began recruiting for the terror group.
