This is just disgusting. A few days removed from a complete shellacking in the midterm elections, Obama has decided to stick his nose up at the American people and release another dangerous terrorist from the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility.
Fawzi al-Odah was one of the longest-held terrorists in GITMO. Instead of keeping him in Guantanamo where we know he can be stopped, the Obama administration released him back to Kuwait.
Once home, al-Odah will be forced to spend a year in a Kuwaiti “militant-rehabilitation center,” however after six months he will become eligible for ‘parole,’ specifically more time outside the center to spend with family and friends.
What’s even worse is that a day before his release was made public, an al-Qaeda Twitter account tweeted out the good news of al-Odah’s transfer.
I don’t want to believe that the Obama administration leaked this information to our enemies. I desperately don’t want to believe that. But I don’t see how else a classified government transfer order would be leaked to al-Qaeda…
In six months, this jihadi will be free to meet with his terrorist cohorts. In a year, he will be back on the battlefield. This is all thanks to Barack Hussein Obama!
The Obama administration has remained largely silent on this matter. But you can expect that in the coming days, they will try to depict Fawzi al-Odah as a rehabilitated terrorist.
Unfortunately for Democrats, all of al-Odah’s records have been published by Wikileaks. So We the People have full access to the military’s records.
Fawzi al-Odah was caught in November/December of 2001 walking through the Tora Bora region of Afghanistan carrying an AK-47 rifle and American currency.
Not only was he caught fighting for the Taliban, but in January of 2008 he was deemed by the Pentagon to be “a HIGH risk, as he is likely to pose a threat to the US, its interests, and allies.” (emphasis in original).
People weren’t just backpacking through Tora Bora in 2001… this was almost exclusively done by fleeing al-Qaeda members.
I can understand where Guantanamo’s critics are coming from… I can empathize with the argument that indefinite detention is unconstitutional. But we aren’t talking about someone who was wrongly imprisoned. We are talking about a high-value, dangerous terrorist that Obama just released to return back to the battlefield!
This is just so despicable! Barack Obama promised to close Guantanamo years ago. But now that the clock is ticking leading up to the GOP takeover of the Senate, Obama knows he is running out of time to release violent terrorists!
It doesn’t matter the conditions of their release. It doesn’t matter whether other countries promise to “rehabilitate” these terrorists.
It is estimated that 20-30 of the terrorists released by Obama have snuck into Syria and are now fighting for ISIS and other terrorist groups.
This is what tyranny looks like… A bipartisan Congress overwhelmingly voted to halt Guantanamo Bay prisoner releases yet Obama has chosen to do to release these terrorists anyway!
Now we are hearing that in addition to sending terrorists back to the Middle East, Obama’s aides are also drafting an executive order to allow the President to bring these extremists to American prisons!
When these terrorists are released, they rejoin the fight. They join up with other violent extremists and target Americans and their allies.
That is the LAST thing we want!
Many on the Left want to give these terrorists a trial in the American court system, and if this happens it is likely that many of them will simply get let off. So what then? We’ll just have a bunch of terrorists living among us?
Regardless of whether you support the idea of Guantanamo Bay or not, the government has no business bringing these terrorists into the United States or releasing them to countries that sponsor and harbor terrorists!
Yet, with the stroke of a pen, Barack Obama will sign an executive order that rewrites the law to enact his own dangerous liberal agenda!
