This is callous and disgusting.
It is clearly evident that President Barack Obama and his administration care little about reality but will push ahead with their ideological agenda.
As reported by US News and World Report, “Five men held by the U.S. at its base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been released and sent to the United Arab Emirates.
The Pentagon says the five Yemeni men were accepted for resettlement in the Persian Gulf nation after U.S. authorities determined they no longer posed a threat. The Defense Department said in a statement Sunday that their release brings the Guantanamo prisoner population to 107.
The five men, all of whom had been detained for over a decade, were identified as Ali al-Razihi, Khalid al-Qadasi, Adil al-Busays, Sulayman al-Nahdi and Fahmi al-Asani.
The release of the enemy combatants is part of President Obama’s ultimate goal to do away with Guantánamo completely. The five men were cleared by a secondary Guantánamo review board, but an initial task force only approved the release of four of the men, excluding al-Razihi.
al-Razihi had been a bodyguard for 9/11 mastermind and Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, the task force said in recommending his continued detention. He also fought against the U.S.-backed Northern Alliance shortly before the U.S. entry to the region. He was described as a “medium [security] risk [who] may pose a threat to the US, its interests, and allies,” said a statement from the initial task force.
A formerly classified document has described al-Razihi as “a member of Al Qaeda who was identified as a UBL bodyguard and received basic and advanced training at Al Qaeda’s al-Faruq Training Camp.”
Who cares how long they’ve been held? As long as Islamic terrorism continues, we must continue to keep them off the battlefield. And the best place to make sure these five don’t pose a threat is to keep them at Club GITMO.
On this weekend when those who were so viciously and savagely attacked are still fighting for their lives, the Obama administration released Islamic terrorists. This is what the enemy sees of us and this is why they are further emboldened. This is why they will relentlessly attack until we finally take definitive action — when even at this point there are naysayers and dissenters.
