Authorities are questioning Kiyemba on his role in his possible role in the shooting death of Uganda prosecutor Joan Kagezi.
Voice of America reported:
Hunting for suspects in the killing of a prosecutor who pursued Islamic extremists, Ugandan authorities arrested a Ugandan man who had previously been held by the United States at its prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, before being released in 2006.
Jamal Kiyemba was arrested with three others in a Kampala suburb Tuesday, Ugandan police spokesman Fred Enanga said on Wednesday. Enanga said U.S. officials helped track down Kiyemba.
He said there was no conclusive evidence tying Kiyemba to the killing on March 30 of Ugandan prosecutor Joan Kagezi, but that detectives were questioning him about his possible role and about other offenses. Kagezi had been a prosecutor in the ongoing trial of 12 suspects accused of being involved in the July 2010 bombings here in which more than 70 people were killed while watching the soccer World Cup final on TV. The attack was carried out by al-Shabab, the Somali Islamic extremist group.
A U.S. military file signed by the then commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, Brig. Gen. Jay W. Hood, said Kiyemba was arrested by Pakistani police near Peshawar as he attempted to enter Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the company of a probable al-Qaida operative, a suspected al-Qaida operative and a “low-level jihadist.”

Barack Obama took a swipe at Scott Walker, telling the Wisconsin Governor he needs to “Bone Up” on foreign policy to be a worthy presidential candidate. And this coming from a one-term Senator and Community Organizer whose vast resume includes hating Israel, abandoning four Americans in Benghazi, ignoring the slaughter of Christians worldwide, and helping Iran – a radical Islamic state and Global sponsor of terrorism – develop nuclear weapons because it makes him and Valerie Jarrett happy? Nice, social utility over the sworn tenets of honor and duty. No wonder Mr. Hussein can’t bring himself to calling ISIS a threat or commit to defeating their murderous rampage! Should I even mention the White House is waging a demographic coup d’etat against American sovereignty by allowing thousands of medically and criminally unvetted foreigners to stream across our border: even flying them to cities across America and giving them welfare at taxpayer expense? Wow, that really is a tough act to follow. I almost forgot 9/11 ever happened, America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and that we’re a nation of laws!
Perhaps the President and his Media Muppets should just choose not to speak. Their hypocrisy is so unbearably thick I can’t tell whether they’re talking out of the unbreachable chasm known as their lying ass or they’re busy laying a gigantic, 24 carat egg to cover-up 6 years of unapologetic abuse, historic failure, and blatant anti-Americanism.
A federal judge in Texas denied a Justice Department request Tuesday to lift his temporary hold on President Obama’s executive action preventing the deportation of millions of illegal immigrants…..
……The first of Obama’s orders–to expand a program that protects young immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children–had been set to take effect Feb. 18. The other major part would extend deportation protections to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have been in the country for several years. That provision was slated to begin on May 19.
Hanen issued his initial injunction believing that neither of those orders had taken effect. About a month later, the Justice Department confirmed that more than 108,000 people had already received three-year reprieves from deportation and work permits, but DOJ attorneys insisted the moves were made under 2012 guidelines that weren’t blocked by the injunction. The DOJ apologized for any confusion, but Hanen seemed unconvinced during a hearing last month and threatened to sanction the attorneys.
He wrote Tuesday that while the federal government had been “misleading” on the subject, he would not immediately apply sanctions against the government,…..
“The parties’ arguments should be decided on their relative merits according to the law,not clouded by outside allegations that may or may not bear on the ultimate issues in this lawsuit, “Hanen wrote.
In a separate order Hanen, told the government it has until April 21 to file to the court and plaintiffs detailed information about its March advisory about the 108,000 three-year reprieves.
The order asks the government to produce “any and all drafts” of the advisory, including information on when each draft was written,edited or revised. Hanen also asked for a list of each person who knew about the advisory.

During hist NPR interview Monday, Barack Obama said he’d act fast to remove Cuba from the list of states sponsoring terrorism when he gets the State Department recommendation.
“As soon as I get a recommendation, I’ll be in a position to act on it,” Obama said.
He undoubtedly, in accordance with the law, plans to assure Congress that Cuba has not provided any support for international terrorism during the preceding six months and that the government has provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future.
True or not, and most would say not, Barack Obama will swear to it.
