Obama to address America on Guantanamo Prison

As President Obama prepares to speak about his plans for closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay, there are some things to keep in mind:

1. Credible estimates indicate that between 20% and 30% of those who were held and then released from Guantanamo returned to violent Jihad. This included Al Qaeda and Taliban leaders and some who have joined the Islamic State.

2. Despite what Obama will say, the enemy does NOT use Guantanamo as a recruiting tool. It is completely absent from their recruiting propaganda. What they actually use are their successes, not their failures. The Left, led by Obama, have given aid and comfort to the Jihadists by promoting the meme that Guantanamo is a recruiting tool for the enemy. When Leftists in America were first airing this myth, what the Jihadists were REALLY using to recruit was the September 11th attacks. To this day, they use attacks such as San Bernardino and Chattanooga, as well as attacks around the world, to recruit.

There is no good reason to close Guantanamo.

Obama is lying.

America Scores “Own Goal” on Jihadis Released from Gitmo

This is absolutely revolting. The Obama administration has been careening head-long to shut down the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, even if it means replenishing the leadership of sworn Jihadist enemies of the United States.

And that isn’t at all lost on those enemies. Whereas the Left in the West has been promoting the outright lie that Guantanamo is used by the Jihadists to recruit, here we have a bit of stark reality.

Far from using imprisoned Jihadists to recruit, Al Qaeda is using a monster that Obama released from the prison as the centerpiece of their propaganda. Had Ibrahim al Qosi not been released, would anyone have heard of him? Would Al Qaeda be featuring him in its video releases?

Of course not.

We are being lied to and our enemies are using those lies to capitalize on the weakness of our leaders.
