Perhaps there was only a duration of three weeks between leaving Iran as a free citizen and entering New York as a detainee, but Kuwaiti citizen Sulaiman Abu Ghaith became the easiest of preys among al-Qaeda leaders to be killed or arrested. Abu Ghaith, who appeared in intimidating videos making threatening speeches with his thunderous voice, escaped with others after their defeat in Afghanistan in 2001 to settle in Iran with other al-Qaeda members including some of Bin Laden’s sons and daughter.
We did not hear Abu Ghaith’s voice since then. He was like the rest of those whom Iranian authorities hosted and prevented from appearing in the press. Turkey has before admitted it released him after interrogation, and recently the Americans announced they arrested him in Jordan. These two incidents made me realize that the story did not add up. How did he leave Iran while under supervision and allegedly with his wife, who is Bin Laden’s daughter, along with his two sons? How did he enter Turkey with an expired Kuwaiti passport? And how does Turkey release a man with such a criminal background? How did he convince an airline company to travel to Jordan? Everyone who travels knows that these issues are almost impossible.
