Bin Laden Loyalist Let Go

US authorities have freed one of Osama bin Laden's top people.

Abdallah Tabarak was captured in December, 2001 -- after engineering bin Laden's escape from that battle. He volunteered to be a decoy, using bin Laden's satelitte phone to lure US forces away as bin Laden slipped out.

Mr Tabarak was captured and locked up at Guantanamo for three years -- listed as a high-value prisoner.

But he was turned over to Morocco in 2004. Today he walks the streets of Casablanca a free man. (WashPost)
