Former Guantanamo Detainee Bombed Iraqi Base

U.S. officials sent Abdallah Saleh Al-Ajmi from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to Kuwait, where he was released. He later drove a truckload of explosives into an Iraqi army base.

The case further complicates the issue of what to do with detainees once Guantanamo closes.
