Rebel Commander in Libya Fought Against U.S. in Afghanistan

Posted by John Rosenthal

Shortly after unrest broke out in eastern Libya in mid-February, reports emerged that an “Islamic Emirate” had been declared in the eastern Libyan town of Darnah and that, furthermore, the alleged head of that Emirate, Abdul-Hakim al-Hasadi, was a former detainee at the American prison camp in Guantánamo. Well, al-Hasadi is not a former Gitmo detainee, and he says that he is merely a military commander, not an “Emir.” But he now admits that he was indeed detained by American forces and that he fought against the latter in Afghanistan. He also admits to having recruited Libyans to fight against US forces in Iraq.
