Abu Faraj al Libi

ISN: 10017
Nationality: Libyan

The following is a summary of the allegations against Abu al Libi found in publicly available US military documents. If US military documents about this prisoner are inaccurate or misleading then this summary will be as well. The introduction to this set of summaries explains some of the terms used below.   

Abu Faraj al Libi acknowledged working as a trainer and administrator of the Al Qaeda al-Faruq Training Camp from 1993 to 1998, according to his Detainee Assessment Brief (DAB). Also according to his DAB Abu said that starting in 2003 he served as a courier between Osama Bin Laden and others in Pakistan.

Abu’s DAB says he “is a senior al-Qaida member who managed al-Qaida operations, to include al-Qaida operations in Iraq, once KU-10024 was captured, and had control over al-Qaida operations against US and Coalition forces within Afghanistan. Detainee planned and executed operations against the US and other nations, including an alleged 2003 assassination attempt against President Musharraf of Pakistan. Detainee also provided safe havens for UBL and senior al-Qaida leader Dr. Ayman al Zawahiri in 2001 and 2003. Detainee served as an instructor and administrator at two al Qaida training camps in Afghanistan where he also received formal militant training. Detainee further managed two al-Qaida guesthouses and fought on the Afghan front lines in support of the Taliban.”

Abu was arrested by Pakistani Special Forces in May 2005. He was later transferred to US custody. He was sent to Guantanamo in September 2006.

Abu declined to attend his Combatant Status Review Tribunal and said through his personal representative that his case should be handled through a “judicial procedure,” a trial, rather than an “administrative procedure” like a CSRT.

Abu was recommended for prosecution by Obama’s Guantanamo task force in January 2010.
