    Re: Terror inmates may be released in US: intel chief

    Records reveal that dozens of terrorists who have been released from custody at Guantanamo Bay have rejoined their terror gangs and gone back to their day job killing our soldiers...In July 2005, commander Jeffrey Gordon, a Pentagon spokesman, said that "our reports indicate that at least thirty former Guantanamo detainees have taken part in anti-coalition militant activities after leaving U.S. detention. Some have been killed in combat in Afghanistan and Pakistan." By June 2007, the Washington Post was reporting that "possibly as many as fifty former Guantanamo detainees have returned to the battlefield to fight against the United states and its allies."

    These men were captured by American troops-soldiers who were risking their lives to bring them in-because they posed a threat to the United States. Yet after holding them, we have let them go, so that they could return to the ranks of our adversaries.

    Let's remember that these men are not in prison because of some crime they have committed for which they are to serve a determined sentence and then be released, their debt to society paid. These inmates are enemy warriors captured in battle.

    In December 2001 [Abdullah] Mehsud was captured by Afghan forces and turned over to American authorities. He was held at Guantanamo until March 2004, when we let him go.

    How did he get out? He hid his identity. When he was first captured, he was carrying a false Afghan identity card; according to the Washington Post, "while in custody he maintained the fiction that he was an innocent Afghan tribesman."

    Mehsud boasted to reporters that U.S. officials never realized he was a Pakistani deeply involved with terrorist organizations. "I managed to keep my Pakistani identity hidden all these years," Mehsud boasted to Gulf News.

    excerpt from Fleeced by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann
    I am in no ways an advocate of holding innocent men, but it also seems that if we do not have sufficient means to rightfully determine who is in reality innocent and who is affiliated with terrorist organizations we must err on the side of caution that benefits the safety of U.S. citizens, not potential terrorists. When these detainees are released, in no way should it be on U.S. soil, since all indications point to the assumption that at least some "innocents" will be those who have managed to artfully keep their real identities and affiliations hidden from investigators. In my opinion, even one would be too many.

    If the Obama administration is unwilling to deport them to their native countries where they would undoubtedly learn the real meaning of torture, perhaps Canada will take them...

    Just because you have the right to do something does not always mean it is right to do it.

    The only assistance they need is a boat ticket back to terrorist land.

    There is a big difference between being part of a political group of people against a specific political outcome and being part of a smaller group that takes it upon themselves to take aggressive action in the name of the political group.

    Those people that normally would not have taken aggressive action are then convinced that aggressive action is the only solution since the same action is used against them by the US.



    Lets just hope they get released in places like san diego.

    Even the Bush gang admtited that a bunch of these guys did nothing wrong.
    We know for a fact that the Bush gang illegally concealed exculpatory evidence to that effect.
    The only justification we have for holding them is Bush's claim that they might be terrorists.
    A claim which he had years to prove in any court. And failed.


    And all the screeching to the contrary is just yahoo fear-mongering, which is only going to persuade the same mouth-breathers who already hate Obama anyway.

    So this whole thing is a waste of time.

    I would gladly live next door to someone who was wrongfully accused of being a terrorist. I do not live my life in fear.
