Obama Wants to Release Gitmo Detainees into U.S.

Obama has renamed the enemy combatant. He has renamed terrorist attack. He has renamed the War on Terror. He has closed Gitmo. Now…he wants to release some Gitmo detainees into the U.S. and give them “assistance.”

First, what kind of assistance are they talking about? So, we are going to give taxpayer’s money to terrorists to start a new life in country they want to destroy.

That is irony. This is just wrong.

Just when we thought the government had gone to far and we were furious, they do this. The Tea Parties just took on a whole other dimension.

Next, the Administration claims these are terrorists that have been cleared but cannot find countries to take them. First, that is lie. Ireland and some other European countries have agreed to take some. One of the groups that Obama says is safe are 17 Chinese Uighurs.

Who are Uighurs? They were mostly new recruits at the time of their capture. They are all affiliated with and/or members of a designated terrorist organization, received training at a training camp in the al Qaeda/Taliban stronghold of Tora Bora, and have admitted that two known terrorists trained them. And, on top of that, the group that trained them threatened to attack the Olympic Games in China last year. Sound safe to you?

If Obama claims they are safe, who else are they releasing into the U.S. and giving them our money?

Here is the story from

President Barack Obama's intelligence chief confirmed Thursday that some Guantanamo inmates may be released on US soil and receive assistance to return to society.

"If we are to release them in the United States, we need some sort of assistance for them to start a new life," said National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair at his first press conference.

"You can't just put them on the street," he added. "All that is work in progress."
Bottom of Form

Obama has vowed to close the controversial prison camp by next January and has ordered individual reviews for cases against each of the over 240 remaining prisoners.

Blair told reporters that the review of Guantanamo cases was still underway, and that the government was "building dossiers on each of the detainees."

The Obama administration is currently evaluating what could be done with the prisoners, he said, but pledged that if they are sent to another country, "we have to be sure that that country will treat them in a humane fashion."

Twenty men detained at the remote US naval base at Guantanamo Bay in southern Cuba have been cleared of terrorism charges, including 17 Chinese Uighurs ordered released by a US court in June, seven years after their arrest. But the US says they may face persecution if returned to China.

In an executive order signed days after he took office in January, Obama also promised to uphold the Geneva Conventions for the remaining prisoners until the detention center is closed.

Blair touched on the controversial interrogation techniques used on terror suspects under the administration of president George W. Bush, saying that those methods -- including waterboarding, or simulated drowning -- would not be used under his tenure.

But Blair, a retired US admiral, added that his team was examining other "enhanced interrogation techniques" for high-value detainees that comply with international conventions on prisoners of war.

He did not elaborate on what methods would be used, but said such interrogations should be carried out by "government employees; they shouldn't be contractors; they should be highly trained, very supervised."


  1. Perhaps he should release them in Chicago,which would not be half a bad idea. For they would fit in with all the other criminals,and that is just the politicans.

  2. Obama’s recent diversity project is a little more than frightening, especially in light of his attempts to gain the approval of world leaders and his disparagement of U.S. citizens in doing so.

    During the past two years, Iran has threatened to send 2000 suicide bombers to the U.S. and true to their word, U.S. Customs has apprehended many Iranians on our Southern Border. Problem? The Immigration Detention Centers are full because Iran will not take back their citizens and many are let loose in our country.

    So, with the addition of Gitmo terrorists being released into our country and supported with public assistance using taxpayer dollars, we can look forward to having terrorists in our neighborhoods. And we will have to be nice to them or they will sue us for violating their “civil rights.”

    I guess we’re out of step with Obama’s plans…afterall, didn’t Hillary just announce she is trying to start a dialogue with the Taliban…that is after failing with North Korea. Their response to her was to launch a missile, after threatening to attack our western seaboard with their nuclear missiles.

    Isn’t life fun with liberals in charge….grab your guns and oh, if you don’t have one, Obama has a plan for you. He plans to tax them so high, you won’t get one to protect yourself from all these folks…the last thing he wants is us, during a time of crisis, to cling to our guns and our religion and recently stated something similar in the last week to European bankers when he said his administration was the only thing between them (the bankers) and pitch forks. Don’t you just love our elitist leader?

    Oh, and newsflash…..NY just passed legislation not to count the votes of the troops if the ballots are delayed in transit to the voting precincts. Ain’t it great to be an American in the Obama age?
