US State Department

Abd al Hadi al Iraqi is an Iraqi citizen who was taken into custody in late 2006. He was held by the Central Intelligence Agency before the agency shut down its detention operations in September 2006 and was ultimately transferred to Guantanamo in April of 2007. He has been described as one of 16 high-valued detainees by US government officials. The government alleges that he was one of Al-Qaeda’s “highest-ranking and experienced senior operatives at the time of his detention,” commanded insurgency efforts in Afghanistan and Pakistan and served as a liaison to the Taliban. He has been charged with denying quarter, attacking protected property for allegedly shooting at a medical helicopter, and using treachery or perfidy. He is currently on trial before the commissions.
