Morocco arrests 17 al-Qaeda suspects

Morocco security forces have arrested 17 radical Islamists on suspicion of belonging to a "terrorist structure" linked to al-Qaeda, state news agency MAP said, quoting a police source.

This would have been an even better victory against Al-Qaeda if some of the captured hadn't been Al-Qaeda suspects released from a prison in Guantanamo.

Of the 17 arrested, two were former prisoners at the U.S. base in Guantanamo, Cuba.

Let's play the glass is half full and pretend they let the little fish go to catch the big fish. I just hope we haven't installed a revolving door in our war on terror prisons. If our country can't rehabilitate a sex offender we have little hope of changing the mind of a religious fanatic convinced he is guaranteed eternal paradise by blowing himself up.
