Cable: Nigeria released known terror suspects
Cable: Under 'Perception Management' program, Nigeria released known terror suspects
By The Associated Press

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) ' A U.S. diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks shows Nigeria released known terror suspects, including some affiliated with al-Qaida's north Africa branch, as part of a program known as "Perception Management."

The cable says the Nigerian government did this to placate elders in the country's Muslim north.

The release of the suspects in early 2008 coincides with the period when Nigerian authorities let go a man now suspected of helping organize the Aug. 26 car bombing of the United Nations headquarters in the oil-rich nation that killed 23 people.
