Mohammed Zahir was not just another captured Jihadist. He was the Secretary General of the Taliban’s Intelligence Directorate and was in contact with top leaders of the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
According to FrontPage Mag, Zahir was the closest thing to a major nuclear terrorist in United States custody.
Freeing him was wildly irresponsible even by the standards of a leader who had sacrificed thousands of Americans in a futile effort to “win” Afghan hearts and minds.
Nor did Obama even bother with the plausible deniability of releasing him to a South American country, the way he had with his previous batch of ISIS recruits, or at least to Qatar.
Instead Mohammed Zahir went back directly to the battlefield in Afghanistan.
When the Islamic terrorist was caught, among his possessions was found a small sealed can marked, in Russian, “Heavy Water U235 150 Grams.”
His possessions included a fax with questions intended for Osama bin Laden and he had been arrested on suspicion of possessing Stinger missiles.
According to the classified report, the uranium had been identified by Zahir “in his memorandum as being intended for the production of an “atom bomb.”
Not only was Mohammed Zahir a terrorist kingpin, but he was also a drug kingpin and the notebook suggested that his eye was on the United States of America.
Among the items was a notebook containing references to large sugar shipments to Washington D.C. Investigators believed that sugar was used as a code word for heroin.
The Black Sea stops mentioned in the notebook are major hubs for smuggling heroin and for nuclear smuggling as well.
