    US government offering $5M reward for Al Qaeda leader freed from Gitmo

    US government offering $5M reward for Al Qaeda leader freed from Gitmo | Fox News

    How can anyone continue to support this Administration? Apparently it is only tax dollars and U.S. military lives

    You'll have to explain this statement, especially the second half. Offering a reward for information on his whereabouts would seem to suggest an emphasis on preventing US casualties would it not?

    What would have prevented U.S. casualties is keeping these animals in prison, not catching them and releasing them

    Then in this particular instance, you should take it up with the guy who was in charge when he was released instead of just haplessly venting about the current administration.

    Ibrahim al-Rubaysh was originally released in 2006 by the George W. Bush administration and put into a Saudi Arabian "rehabilitation" program. However, al-Rubaysh returned to the battlefield and now serves as a top leader with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- one of the most dangerous Al Qaeda affiliates.
    Thanks Obama!!

    Turn him in and they will say "The only way they would have known where he is would be they are a terrorist too" and your five million dollar reward would be the cost of the bomb they are dropping on your house.

    "....Ibrahim al-Rubaysh was originally released in 2006 by the George W. Bush administration and put into a Saudi Arabian "rehabilitation" program......"

    In case anyone missed this tidbit from the OP's link and wants to blame Obama.

    You mean the administration that let him go, or the one offering a five million reward for his capture?

    You seem to miss the point, stop releasing prisoners from Gitmo to appease your base.

    The case underscores the continued risks in transferring detainees from the controversial prison camp -- another four were released over the weekend to Afghanistan.
    Thought this group of partisan hacks would understand that Obama is taking a Bush policy and putting it on steroids.
