Posted on 06/04/2014 6:07:20 AM PDT by Fawn
None of about 48 Guantanamo Bay detainees released or transferred elsewhere by the Obama administration has participated or been suspected of participating in subsequent "recidivist" activity, compared with 20 percent of about 540 detainees released by the George W. Bush administration, according to White House counterterrorism chief John O. Brennan

All the good little DNC Keyboard Kommandos now have their marching orders.
Back to their favorite whipping boy, GWB. Why is Bush silent in the face of their relentless onslaught? Is he a coward or did the NSA get the goods on him or both? Inquiring minds want to know, at least mine does.
Another day another load of cows—t delivered from the White Hut to my computer.
Bush released detainees who would have obviously passed their CSRT.
Obama released detainees who certainly would not have.
238 years ago our forefathers told King George, a man far better than B. Hussein, to sit and spin. Think about that.
He’s busy painting, he’s too stupid to know what’s going on, he needs 0 to not be mad at him, so amnesty will pass, he’s a GOPe stalwart.
‘This is going around about GWB releasing 540 Guantanamo Bay Detainees in 2010.’
If I remember correctly Bush was well out of office by 2010 or did you mean that that is when the story first surfaced?
Says Brennan the Muslim. What else do you expect?
I love your post.
I did sit and think on it.
According to Rush Limbaugh, GWB refuses to speak out because he believes that former American presidents should not involve themselves in public life. When Rush said that it was affecting his base, he didn’t budge in his attitude.
No, I don’t think he’s being black mailed by anyone. For all his faults, he’s a gentleman. Of course, nice guys finish last.
Re: VA Scandal talking point about Bush's wars & wounded vets.
There have been more wounded vets in Barack's Afghanistan than 8 years of GW Bush.
Bush wasn’t in office in 2010, so that doesn’t work. Brennan is a lying POS muslim convert and part of the Jihad.
So, how many men have been held in Gitmo, how many were released by year, and how many were found back on the “battle” field by year? Should be pretty easy to fill in those blanks, don’t you think?
But his wife didn’t mind jumping on the pro choice bandwagon.
Maybe since it’s OK for her, he should send her out to defend him.
‘Hes busy painting, hes too stupid to know whats going on, he needs 0 to not be mad at him, so amnesty will pass, hes a GOPe stalwart.’
I hope that is not true, if it is we were led by a fool for eight years followed by a lunatic for what looks like eight more.
The hits just keep coming. One thing I will say for the leftist loons, they know how to keep their lies straight.
...not a smidgen...
I wish Carter and Clinton would follow his example and just shut the he11 up.
It’s probably more likely that he’s just a true gentleman. I think he really thought his “new tone” would work until the end. Maybe there’s a weird combination of being decent, silver spoon fed, and average intelligence that he doesn’t have the experience to know sheer evil unless it flies some jets into some buildings. He still thinks 0 is doing the best he can.
Brennan still blaming Bush.
Here’s what he said in 2010...
“I want to underscore the fact that all of these cases relate to detainees released during the previous administration and under the prior detainee review process,” Brennan writes. “The report indicates no confirmed or suspected recidivists among detainees transferred during this Administration, although we recognize the ongoing risk that detainees could engage in such activity.”
