Gitmo Terror Release Program
The Democratic Party and liberal blogs laughed at conservatives when they complained about releasing GITMO prisoners to there country of orgin. The Pentagon reported that 61 detainees returned to the terror battlefield after being released. The so-called liberal National security experts in the media said that this would never happen. The liberal newspaper the New York Times received information that 1 in 7 GITMO detainees released by the Bush Administration returned to the battlefield. The actual number of detainees is 74. The report was held back because the Pentagon does not want to upset President Obama who wants to close down the Guantanamo Bay Prison. The New York Times says, the 74 prisoners released from Guantanamo returned to terrorism which is almost a 15%percent. The report was released by a administration official who was sympathetic to to it's findings who said any delay would creating unnecessary conspiracy theories about the holdup. The Administration official who released the report said if we did not release the report that the media would have said that we are protecting the Obama administration. And if we let it go, then everybody would be saying that we are undermining the Obama administration. Among the 74 prisoners released that are engaged in terrorism again, only 29 prisoners have been identified by name by the Pentagon, including 16 named for time in the report. The Pentagon said the the remaining 45 could not be named because of national security and intelligence gathering concerns.
