Okay, so Yousef Mohammed al Shihri was released from Guantanamo Bay...

Thomas Joscelyn reports that another former Gitmo detainee has been killed after returning to his terrorist ways. The jihadist in question is Yousef Mohammed al Shihri. He was killed in a shootout at a checkpoint along the Saudi-Yemeni border after he and his accomplices were stopped by Saudi security forces for suspicious behavior:
Two of the travelers, including al Shihri, were reportedly dressed as women. Saudi security personnel decided to search the al Qaeda car and its passengers, but al Shihri and the others opened fire. Al Shihri and one other al Qaeda member were killed in the shootout, while a third was arrested. One Saudi security officer was also killed. . . . The Saudi security personnel who searched al Shihri's car reportedly found a small cache of arms, including suicide explosive belts.
Al Shihri's return to terrorism should not surprise anyone.

I suppose the only good thing that has come out of this is that Yousef is now safely dead.
