The following is a summary of the allegations against Ahmed Al Darbi 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.  

Al Darbi faces active charges in the military commissions system. According to his charge sheet, Al Darbi was involved with 3 militant training camps. He is alleged to have trained at Khaldan and Al Qaeda’s Jihad Wahl and to have taught at Al Qaeda’s Al Farouq. 

His charge sheet also says that he purchased a crane, GPS devises, and a boat to be used in a plot organized by al Nashiri to sink a petroleum tanker in the Strait of Hormuz in order to cause a world-wide economic depression. In October 2002 an attack on a French ship operated by a Malaysian oil company killed a Bulgarian crew member. The ship was the MV Limburg. A group linked to Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack.
