Default So let me get this straight

We let someone go from Gitmo and several years later he leads the attack that kills two Navy Seals and one of our diplomats.

That has been going on since the second term of the Bush administration. A number of former prisoners at Gitmo have been killed fighting in Afghanistan. The man that you speak of was released in 2007, even though there were links between him and the financial backers of 9/11.

Sufyan Ben Qumu is the leader of the group the Libyan Islamic Movement. They were one of the groups that helped over throw the government there. They are listed as an al Qaida affiliate by the UN. They are basically like the war lords of Somalia. They are involved in smuggling, protection rackets and money laundering. The group preys on their own people and wouldn't be missed if a predator drone happened to locate them.
