Jihadis attack us and we release them to rearm the enemy. Obama also believes in bringing the most dangerous terrorists in the world into US prisons.
The Department of Defense announced on Sunday that it transferred five Yemeni detainees from the Guantánamo Bay prison in Cuba to the United Arab Emirates. Congress was notified in advance of the transfer.
The transfer, conducted Friday night but disclosed Sunday afternoon, left 107 captives at the remote Guantánamo — 48 cleared for release once diplomats negotiate security assurances that satisfy Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, the Miami Herald reported.
The resettlement of the Yemeni detainees was the first of its kind to the United Arab Emirates, which had previously taken in just one former Guantánamo detainee, in 2008 — its own citizen.
The transferred detainees included three men who had been recommended for transfer by a 2009 task force made up of six security-related agencies under Barack Obama. Those detainees are Khalid Abd Jal Jabbar Muhammad Juthman al Qadasi, Sulaiman Awath Sulaiman Bin Ageel al Nahdi and Fahmi Salem Said al Sani.
There were also two men whom the task force recommended for continuing detention but whose status was later changed to transferable by an Obama-compliant board. They are Ali Ahmad Muhammad al Rahizi, a bin Laden security guard, and Adil Said al Haj Obeid al Busayss.
They are all Yemenis who could not be returned to their native country.
Barack Obama plans to bring any prisoners who can’t be released to a United States prison and will release a plan to do so this upcoming week. A statute passed by Congress currently bars the military from bringing any detainees onto domestic soil but Barack Obama has threatened unilateral action.
Army Major Montgomery Granger, in a recent appearance on Fox News, warned against closing GITMO.
The Pentagon supports this because the only people on the Pentagon staff are politicians. There are no military.
Barack Obama has politicized the Pentagon.
Thirty percent of those released return to the battlefield and those tried in the US often disappear into our country.
