Cited As An Example By Senator Mitch McConnell

On April 21, 2009, United States Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell cited "Ali Abd al-Azeez Ali" as an example of the kind of captive United States President Barack Obama might free in the United States when he closes the camp in January 2010, because he didn't know what else to do with him.

Another person at Guantanamo that the Administration doesn’t know what it will do with in nine months is Ali Abd al-Azeez Ali, who served as a key lieutenant for KSM during the 9/11 operation. How does transferring or releasing him make the country safer?

On August 31, 2009, Corrections One, a trade journal for the prison industry, speculated that "Abd al Aziz Ali" was one of ten captives they speculated might be moved to a maximum security prison in Standish, Michigan.

Famous quotes containing the words cited and/or senator:

    Private property is held sacred in all good governments, and particularly in our own. Yet shall the fear of invading it prevent a general from marching his army over a cornfield or burning a house which protects the enemy? A thousand other instances might be cited to show that laws must sometimes be silent when necessity speaks.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    I am a Senator against my wishes and feelings, which I regret more than any other of my life.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
