Family and friends condemn the two Saudis who have shown up in Al-Qaeda videos from Yemen. After being transferred from detention at Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia and processed through the rehabilitation program, the two had broken their oaths to avoid terrorism. Saudi Gazette/Okaz interviews the mothers of the two as well as others who all hope that the men see the light before it’s too late.
Al-Oufi, Al-Shihri betrayed our trust: Families, friends
Abdullah Al-Oraifij and Khaled Al-Shalahi
RIYADH/MADINA – The family members and friends of ex-Gitmo detainees, Muhammad Al-Oufi and Sa’eed Al-Shihri, who resurfaced last week in Yemen as Al-Qaeda operatives despite having undergone a rehabilitation program in Saudi Arabia, have denounced them as “irreversible deviant members of society.”
Al-Oufi’s family has accused his “bad” compatriots of dragging him once again to the abyss of terrorism. After his return from Guantanamo where he spent seven years,
Al-Oufi swore that he would never return to the deviant thought, his family said.
Al-Oufi’s mother squarely blames Sa’eed Al-Shihri for the mess her son is in now. The mother said her son was picked up from his house by Al-Shihri about three months ago.
