Number of Ex-GITMO Combatants Who Rejoin Jihad DOUBLES

Jihad in America

And Obama wants to release the rest — the worst of the worst jihad terrorists. Blood chilling.

Why wouldn’t they return to jihad? What changed? They received halal food, qurans, prayer mats and respect for the very ideology inciting this war. Why wouldn’t they continue to practice their faith and “strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers”? (quran 8:12)

Obama’s plan to close Gitmo is an attack on the American people.

“The number of ex-Guantanamo prisoners suspected of rejoining militants has doubled,” By Mark Hosenball, Reuters, March 8, 2016:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The number of former Guantanamo Bay prison inmates who are suspected of having returned to fighting for militants doubled to 12 in the six months through January, the Obama administration said on Monday.

The increase could fuel Republican attacks on Democratic President Barack Obama’s plan to close the U.S. military prison in Cuba, which has come to symbolize aggressive detention practices following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and opened the United States to accusations of torture. Most detainees have been held without trial for more than a decade.

The closure plan, drawn up by the Pentagon and which requires approval by Congress, proposes 13 potential sites on U.S. soil to hold 30-60 detainees in maximum-security prisons.

According to figures released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), as of Jan. 15 the United States also had confirmed that seven out of 144 Guantanamo prisoners who were freed since Obama took office in January 2009 have returned to fighting.

That was up from six since the ODNI’s previous release last July. The ODNI report is released every six months and does not give details on where or for which groups the former detainees are confirmed or suspected to be fighting.

The ODNI figures showed that 111 of 532 prisoners released by the Republican administration of President George W. Bush are confirmed to have returned to the battlefield, with 74 others suspected of doing so. Under Bush, suspected militants were rounded up overseas as the United States became embroiled in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and imprisoned at Guantanamo.

The closure plan faces strong opposition from lawmakers who do not want detainees transferred to the United States. The United States took control of part of Guantanamo Bay in Cuba in 1903 under a treaty with the Havana government.

Obama has pressed the Republican-led legislature to give his proposal a “fair hearing” and said he did not want to pass the issue to his successor in January. He is also considering executive action to close the facility.

Republican Representative Ed Royce, chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, introduced a measure that would force the administration to publicize plans for transfers from Guantanamo.

Four other Republicans, Senators Richard Burr, Kelly Ayotte, Tom Cotton and presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, also introduced a bill that would bar Obama from returning the naval base at Guantanamo to Cuba without authorization from Congress.

    Why would any Muslim in America practicing their inherently seditious Islam want to abandon it when it offers too much opportunity for supremacist advancement?

    • Dave J Lawson

      They are working to a plan and with help from corrupt politicians and media will turn it into next Jihadiland like Europe http://tinyurl.com/zcgplm3

    • The origional roger

      True, they are all on the ground floor just waiting for their moment of power, and many will say as much.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Now that the repeat offenders are know, shoot them on sight instead of taking them prisoner.

    • They quite happily execute murderers, rapists, and serial killers of the American kind – yet, the Mooslim rapists, serial killers, and murderers are released?

      It kind of gives away Odumber’s bias…

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Until a muslim is declared an apostate, they can co no wrong, according to islam.

        • I meant in America’s prisons they happily execute Americans for their crimes against humanity – while releasing Mooslimes to continue with their crimes against humanity.

          It’s Odumber’s bias on show.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            hussain the muslim will be remembered, if remembered at all, as the fool who set race relations back 50 years, and through favouring islam above all others, turned it into the most hated, reviled and repulsive cult in the history of man.

          • Ron Cole

            Thank you for not capitalizing the Enemies alias.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            In English, capitalization, I am told, is a mark of respect. As respect is earned, not a grammatical nicety, there is no reason to capitalize the name of those not deserving respect.

          • Ron Cole

            That especially applies to le hussien the oft aliased paperless muslim fascist terrorist alien fairy puppet of le chief iranian imam valkeryie jarr&tt.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Yes, thanks good grammar is always nice. Circumstance notwithstanding.

      And traitor hussein , wants to bring the rest here, and give them all lawyers, or just let them loose!! Total insanity

  • The origional roger

    Obama said he did not want to pass the issue to his successor in January.
    Just in case his successor is a patriot, a conservative, has regard for the constitution and won’t let any more terrorists go back to fighting against the US and its allies.

    • MiddleSister

      I think returning Gitmo to Cuba will be his final executive order.

  • billwhit

    Hussein knows exactly that they are going back to kill Americans, that is why he releases them! Obama is a Tyrant who needs to see his end days and be sent to Hell to be with his Allah/Satan in Hell, where all Muslim Pigs will be going! Death to Tyrants!

    • Jack

      If I were TIME Magazine© or President Obama, I would NOT brag about being Man of the Year on their Cover Page. WHY? ADOLF HITLER was MAN OF THE YEAR on TIME Magazine© during the 1930s!

      • Lol, I agree, but this is a fake, I am sure! Same thing with the Nobel Peace Prize today, it is a laughable prize because so many Tyrants have gotten it, like Queen Hussein Obama, which makes it even twice as laughable!

  • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

    Why shouldn’t they be released?…..From say, 10,000 feet😂?

  • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

    This is mental. Then means someone will have to catch them again and some of them are Olympic standard at hide and seek and in the meantime the bastards will be speaking at rallys and radicalising youth and slaughtering and badmouthing the West.

    Obama is just a fu😵king nightmare, what a bastard traitor scumbag he is.

  • Drew the Infidel

    One thing not being stated is that there is a direct correlation between the number released and the number rejoining the fray. Releases increase and so does the recidivism rate in lockstep.

  • joe1429

    How come the do nothing congress is not charging Ash carter, with a crime?? He has to sign a waiver for each one released certifying they will not return to the battlefield

    • MiddleSister

      I agree! I think that will be his final executive order. Or maybe he’ll do it sooner; say, when he visits Cuba.

  • truthtopowerCNS

    Obama is playing Jenga with the world. And someone else will get the blame.

  • Where is a JFK moment when we need one…

  • Stephen Honig

    That was the main purpose of Obama releasing them, so they can kill us. Any further explanation?

  • Jack

    In front of President Obama’s name and office Party Affiliation should be scrubbed and replaced with American as in American President Obama. He should be reminded by both sides of the aisle each day that hIs primary duty is to protect the lives of Americans here and abroad; all else is second. Everyone especially Barack Hussain Obama have lost sight of this fact.

  • James

    Obama was right – GITMO really is a recruitment tool. Every time he turns one loose they are recruited by ISIS or some other terrorist group.

  • Steve Brown

    Vote for Donald Trump because Trump said that he will deport the Jihadist to prisons back where they came from.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Seeing those ragheads in the photo all huddled up together with their asses hiked up in the air like a bunch of tumblebugs reminds me of that advice we used to get in Vietnam, “Don’t stand so close together; one grenade could kill you all.”

  • joker

    Seeing the photo above they are all lined up to be executed. What is wrong with the U.S.?

  • Probably more like 100%!!
