High Level Terrorist Captured

WASHINGTON — After secret interrogations, the CIA transferred to U.S. military custody a high-level Al Qaeda figure who helped Usama bin Laden escape from Afghanistan in 2001, the Pentagon announced Friday.

Mohammad Rahim was detained last summer, CIA Director Michael Hayden said, but the intelligence official didn’t reveal where or by whom. The CIA turned Rahim over to the military earlier this week in what Hayden said was the first such transfer from his agency’s interrogation program since April 2007.

Rahim is now being held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Hayden said.

“Rahim’s detention in the summer of 2007 was a blow to more than one terrorist network,” Hayden told agency employees in a memo obtained by The Associated Press. “He gave aid to Al Qaeda, the Taliban and other anti-coalition militants.”

  2. And you know what? I don’t care whether they are waterboarding him, drowning him and reviving him and drowning him again, or removing digits and other extremities one teensy little piece at a time.
