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.

The Gitmo Insanity Continues

The US government just released another Al Qaeda Jihadist to the custody of Saudi Arabia.

The United States said on Tuesday it had transferred Abdul Shalabi, a longtime hunger striker at the Guantanamo Bay prison and described as a bodyguard for former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, to his home country of Saudi Arabia.

Note that there are no doubts whatsoever about who and what Abdul Shalabi is. He is a hardened Jihadi, a member of Al Qaeda and a close associate of Osama Bin Laden.

This was no case of mistaken identity. Shalabi was no innocent pilgrim taken prisoner because he happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. He is a member of a terrorist organization that formally declared war on the United States and which is still at war with the United States.

And Obama, in hisĀ misguided desire to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, has released him to a country whose role in the formation and support of Al Qaeda, including the September 11 attacks, has been concealed from the American people, most likely because Al Qaeda could not exist without money from wealthy Saudis and numerous Saudi recruits–including former members of the Saudi military and national guard–throughout its ranks.

No wonder the recidivism rate among former Gitmo prisoners is on the order of 20% to 30%.

Instead of closing Gitmo, we should be opening more such facilities in places like Midway Island, Wake Island and other isolated spots, so that we can lock away more Jihadis and throw away the key.
