Barack Obama is planning to release 18 more Guantanamo Bay detainees before President-Elect Donald Trump has a chance to step into the White House as President. This doesn’t count the four he has already sent to Saudi Arabia. The four he sent to Saudi Arabia had been held in prison for over ten years and they include an accused senior al Qaeda bomb-maker, two would-be 9/11 hijackers, and the al Qaeda’s top financial manager. In April of 2016 the Obama administration released nine prisoners, three of whom have returned to terrorism. The Pentagon released a statement at the time of the release of the nine prisoners saying, “The United States is grateful to the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its humanitarian gesture and willingness to support ongoing U.S. efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.”
Terrorists who threaten to behead people like you and me should not be released to go right back to killing innocent people. Trump couldn’t believe the stunt Obama was pulling either and took to twitter to call B.S.
There should be no further releases from Gitmo. These are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back onto the battlefield.

Obama somehow believes he is leaving behind some fantastic sterling legacy, but how could he possibly think releasing terrorist back into the world could bring any honor to his legacy? The simple answer is that he has the liberal media on his side to back up all stupid/selfish choices he makes. The Liberal media will spin the situation into some noble act Obama is doing for the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay.
The Washington Post is just as delusional is Obama, they want you to feel bad for the terrorists. They claim that operating Gitmo is a violation of human rights and American values of justice. The NPR claims the four detainees who were recently released were only “suspected of being low-level militants with ties to al-Qaida but were never charged,” and that their release was contingent on them entering a Rehabilitation Program.
Are they serious? A Rehabilitation Program? These are evil people who want to kill anyone who is not a believer in Muhammad. Why should we feel bad for them? I don’t care what level, high or low, on the Terrorist totem pole they measure up to. These hardened terrorists are not going to set down for a twelve-step program.
CNN reports 161 inmates released since January 2009 returned to supporting terrorist groups. Fifteen are “suspected” of having gone back to terrorist activity. I’m not ok with any of them going back to terrorist activity and knowing that in fact, a percentage of them do, is not acceptable. It only takes a single man to kill many people in a terrorist attack. For example some more recent attacks, Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Florida, Paris and Berlin, Chattanooga, Tennessee. Obama wants you just except that he is going to release 22 men who could be the same horror and killing as men did.
