Recycling Terror: 83 Ex-Gitmo Terrorists Out Making Terror Again

Obama's "accelerated release" program to get Gitmo detainees back out on the Arab street again is definitely accelerating things: Since Obama took office, the recidivism rate of released Gitmo guys has doubled to 25%.

I wonder if that is good news for the more than 80 volunteer lawyers for Gitmo detainees who got together to endorse Obama's bid for the presidency back in 2008.

The results of terrorist recidivism were horrific even before Obama took office. For example, a Gitmo detainee released under George W. Bush is suspected of being behind the "gruesome murders and abductions" of nine foreigners in Yemen in June of 2009: four German adults, three small children, a British man and a South Korean woman. This group included a doctor and his family, two nurses, and an engineer and his wife.

A couple of Gitmo detainees released in 2007 provided the 2008 underwear bomber with the explosives he used to try and bring down an airliner over Detroit last Christmas.

Now that Obama has sped up release of Gitmo detainees, detainees seem to be being thrown out of Gitmo with little regard for the safety of others. According to a report recently released by the director of national intelligence, 1 in 4 Gitmo detainees released under Obama are no longer "unemployed" terrorists, lounging around all day in a pleasant climate, eating pizza, and reading their Korans. They are back at work, engaged in "terrorist or insurrectionist activities." The intelligence community has assessed that, of the 150 released Gitmo detainees who have returned to terrorist/insurrectionist activities, 83 are still at large.

I wonder how much blood has been spilled by those 150, and how much blood is yet to be spilled by those 83.

How many of those 83, and their unknown number of jihadist apprentices and wacko toadies, are among the terrorists whom Obama's Homeland Security fears might be smuggling explosives to kill holiday travelers in 2010?

Of those 150 recycled terrorists, 53 have been recaptured, and 13 have been killed.

I wonder how much blood of brave Americans has been sacrificed recapturing those 53 and killing those 13. How much pain endured? How much time away from loved ones and the comforts of home?

I even wonder if Obama and his Leftie supporters--an astonishing group of slow learners--are going to wake up and start protecting the innocent instead of the guilty.


  1. Long have we speculated that the ACLA would destroy our nation, now it is actually happening.

  2. I am so sick of the libs standing up for the terrorists instead of the innocent. It's truly mind-boggling to me how anyone could think like that. The ACLU needs to be taken down.
