Just in case there is still anyone out there who thinks that President Obama actually cares at all for the safety and security of our country, this should hopefully dispel that myth. It is certainly no secret that Obama wants to close the military prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The way he is going about this, however, is both dangerous and Un-American.
Obama Releases ‘Forever Prisoner’ Deemed Too Dangerous To Release
The newest move came on Wednesday, when the Obama Regime released one of the longest serving prisoners in the camp. Fawzi al-Odah had also been classified as too dangerous to release in the past. Yet, he was sent back to Kuwait. But don’t worry, Obama has our back because this dangerous terrorist has agreed to serve one year in a militant rehabilitation center upon his return to Kuwait.
Isn’t that comforting? So, assuming the terms of his release are kept, this man will only need to wait a year before he can re-join Al Qaeda or maybe even team up with ISIS or one of the other nasty groups over in that part of the world. Perfect.
By the way, this prisoner was actually one of the first to arrive at the camp, back in 2002. Military reviews conducted by both the Bush and Obama administrations found the man to be a former/current member of Al Qaeda as both a recruiter and a courier. Amazingly, during a review last summer, the Periodic Review Board actually re-named him a low-risk transfer.
Concerns About Safety, Security Breaches
This brings the total number of Gitmo detainees released or transferred out of the camp (including the five prisoners released in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl) up to 89. This also marks a serious uptick in the amount of risk the Obama Regime now seems willing to take. Another interesting thing about this release is the fact that an Islamist Twitter account sent congratulatory messages to the released man’s family…before it was publicly confirmed he would be allowed to leave.
This is now raising serious questions about possible security holes and breaches in the process. How could a well-known Muslim Twitter user have access to such sensitive information regarding Defense Department deliberations?
Al Qaeda Reunion
We should also consider the fact that even if the Obama Regime doesn’t consider this to be a risky move, the Al Qaeda network (and other terrorist organizations) still consider these detainees to be involved in the fight. The fight against the US. They will most likely be trying to integrate everyone Obama releases back into the thick of things over in the Middle East.
It is certainly not a pleasant thought to consider the fact that we are simply giving dangerous terrorist thugs back to our enemies. Obama’s purpose seems to be getting the number of prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay down to under 100 (with this release, there are now 148). At that point, he seems to think it would be much easier to try and integrate these Muslims into prisons within the continental US and he would also be free to close the base/prison entirely, being one of the few campaign promises he actually keeps.
What do YOU think about all this? Should we continue releasing dangerous terrorists? Is this just like giving the enemy more soldiers? Will Obama end up closing the prison in Cuba?
