At Least One of the Charlie Hebdo Terrorists Was Captured, Then Released, In Iraq
French Media: All Three Suspects Identified and "Located"?

As Obama continues to let all the terrorists out of Guantanamo, it is now reported that the one of the two brothers who stormed Charlie Hebdo, Cherif Kouachi, was a jihadis fighters in Iraq.

From 2005:

The three men are believed to have left Paris for Iraq last March, accompanied by three other Frenchmen of North African descent, Redouane el-Hakim, Tarek Ouinis and Abdelhalim Badjoudj, all of whom have been killed, according to French intelligence.

According to intelligence officials, Mr. Hakim is believed to have died during a bombardment of Falluja in July, Mr. Ouinis during a firefight with American soldiers in September and Mr. Badjoudj in a suicide attack in October. Mr. Hakim's older brother, Boubaker, is being held in Syria, where he was arrested before he could enter Iraq.

The French authorities believe that the men were recruited by Farid Benyettou, 23, who was arrested two weeks ago as he prepared to send two more young men to Iraq. The men, Thamer Bouchnak and Cherif Kouachi, both 22, have told the police that they met Mr. Benyettou at the Addawa mosque near their homes in Paris in the 19th Arrondissement, a largely Arab working-class district.

Kouachi intended to fly from Iraq to Syria, but missed his flight and got arrested there:

Mr. Kouachi was arrested two days later, having missed his flight for Syria. The arrests were part of a broader sweep that took 11 people into custody. Eight of those people have been released without charge.

And... he was released.

And now he's murdered a dozen people. And that number may rise.

Quick, Obama, clean out Guantanamo before anyone notices!

Claim: This report from L'Express says that the three suspects have been identified and arrested, "according to various media."

Update: A police source denies to La Liberation that the suspects have been arrested, but another source says they've been located.
