In his last year as president, Barrack Obama seems determined to upset as many Americans as possible. In addition to his meaningless measures on gun control, he plans on pushing through another order that puts American lives at risk.
According to Fox News, the Obama administration is set to release more dangerous terrorists from GITMO. “17 detainees expected to be transferred out of Guantanamo Bay as early as this week includes “multiple bad guys” and “Al Qaeda followers,”
The specific identities of the detainees have not been released, for good reason. Regardless of their identities, or roles they’ve played for Al Qaeda, they’ll certainly do harm if freed. Past members who have been released from GITMO have gone on to further aid our enemies.
This is a reference to the administration’s transfer of Ibrahim al Qosi to Sudan in 2012. Despite entering a “re-integration program,” the one-time cook for Usama bin Laden has now fled to Yemen, where he is among the leadership of Al Qaeda in Yemen. That transfer is now said to be a source of considerable heartburn for the Obama administration.
A cook turned terrorist leader? You may say Al Qaeda and other terrorist networks are desperate for recruits, but if they can turn a cook into a leader of murderers, what can they do with this new group? This new batch of releases poses a greater threat to national security.
As Allen West writes:
“How many times have we been told these final few remaining in GITMO are the worst of the worst?”
Instead of prosecuting these terror suspects, or taking other Constitutionally-sound actions, the President simply wants to let these men go free. At a time when the threat of ISIS and other groups against our country is as high as it’s ever been, Obama seems to be serving an Anti-American agenda.
And all this while he tries to distract the media with his trumped-up gun control measures. 2016 is certainly shaping up to be Obama’s worst year in office.
