al-Qaeda’s Diabolical Demi-glace of Doom

By Spencer Ackerman

Ibrahim Ahmed Mahmoud al-Qosi pleaded guilty today to war crimes (specifically, conspiracy and material support to terrorism) at Guantanamo Bay, where he’s lived in detention for the past eight years. The charging documents do not specify al-Qosi ever fired a shot in anger. But for five years, he was Usama bin Laden’s personal chef. All of which makes me wonder if we didn’t just miss an opportunity to turn al-Qosi and then poison the leader of al-Qaeda.
