Skip to comments.Number of Ex-Gitmo Prisoners Rejoining Terror Higher Than Reported
Posted on 03/12/2009 8:40:57 AM PDT by Sergeant Tim
The number of ex-Guantanamo detainees who have gone back to terrorism is much larger than the government is letting on.
A senior intelligence official, who has access to some of the country's top secrets, tells HUMAN EVENTS that some Pentagon analysts actually believe 102 former enemy combatants have returned to terror -- not 61 as publicly reported by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
That would mean that of 520 terrorists released from the Guantanamo Bay prison, nearly 20 percent returned to the practice of killing to achieve their radical view of Islam.
The number is gaining importance in light of the fact that President Obama has announced he intends to close the Guantanamo facility. This means scores of additional detainees not deemed releasable by the Pentagon -- at least until now -- will be sent back to their home countries. It also sends a signal to countries now holding ex-Guantanomo prisoners that it might be OK to release them, too.
Why the discrepancy between 102 and 61?

I am shocked!!!
I knew it was BULLSTALIN from day one because there had already been a number of Gitmo detainees who'd detonated themselves in publi afterwards who did not appear in the tallies.
I loathe the Left. They support the enemy in the war on terror (directly by releasing and championing terrorists and indirectly through aid and comfort propaganda).
and they are releasing more of them
Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys surround us.
They oppose the war not because it is "immoral" but rather because they support the enemy.
Any stat less than 100% is a lie.
Setting up a website criticizing the US is considered “re-joining the fight.” I wonder how many have taken up arms.
Thank you, President Bush, for your ridiculous way of handling these captives, choosing to play games instead of treating them in accordance with law.
Taliban says Pres_ _ent (no ID, is there?) Obama and his clueless VP are "illogical".
"Obama being illogical - Taliban"
"This does not require any response or reaction for this is illogical," Qari Mohammad Yousuf,
a purported spokesman for the insurgent group, said when asked
if its top leader Mullah Mohammad Omar would make any comment about Mr Obama's proposal.
"The Taliban are united, have one leader, one aim, one policy...
I do not know why they are talking about moderate Taliban and what it means?
Just great!....when some of us are left standing in the rubble of a terrorists nuclear explosion...who can we blame?......
Some likely candidates....ACLU, ACORN, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, Reid, Obama, Hillary Clinton,
Howard Dean, AlGore, and every other damn democrat I didn’t mention!......
I think your definition is wrong. Those they have already identified took up arms; not a computer.
Let's release them ALL!!!</dumbobama>

“...is much larger than the government is letting on.
When was it known and who is covering it up? Did the Pentagon/CIA/FBI know and not say? Did Bush know and not say or did OBH know and not say?
W, W, W, W & W.
"You're all FREE! Your won't be charged! You don't even have to repent! Just go forth, and say nice things about ME, so everybody loves me! I will hold them to my bosom!"
That’s the implication in this story.
But the December DIA report listing 61 (18 confirmed, 43 suspected) does not even claim they were all taking up arms. After getting that part wrong, this article then cites “unnamed sources” to bump the numbers up higher.
There are currently a number of media outlets with FOIs on this story. As I noted in comment #1, the Obama administration is stonewalling on releasing information, 30 named detainees who have returned to the fight with details. (My sources say the number is a good bit higher than 102.)
I want to cry every time I see these pictures. Then I get MAD AS HELL!
Remember the new acronym:
Obama LIED and people DIED!
My problem is they are burned in my brian; I don’t need the photos. The top one is from a former college friend of my brother-in-law; he took it himself that day and gave it to me after the funeral (Diogenies lifted it from one of my recent posts).
The terrorists allegiance to their Allah/jihad is stronger than democrats allegiance to their country (of which they hate!).
Terrorists will not be rehabilitated if that’s what these fools think.
Stonewalling? You must be kidding, this is the administration of TRANSPARENCY, the first of it’s kind in the entire history of the world!!!!!!!!!!/sarc
We must NEVER forget.
So 1 if 5 of those RELEASED returned to murdering infidels. More evidence that my strategery of “kill ‘em all and let God sort ‘em out” is a better policy.

They are the most barbaric murderers imagineable and Obama wants to read them their rights.
Thanks Obama. You really zeroed in on that one.
It’s a fact that terrorists released from Gitmo are already back at it. What will Obama and his Socialist Party say when we have another 9/11, or worse? Another 9/11 would destroy what is left of our economy, our republic, and the Constitution. Chaos would ensue. No doubt the terrorists know this, and are making plans.
The release of the Gitmo rats is a major threat, but Obama is asleep at the wheel.
“That would mean that of 520 terrorists released from the Guantanamo Bay prison, nearly 20 percent returned to the practice of killing to achieve their radical view of Islam.”
This fact alone should be sufficient to make anyone with a brain totally opposed to releasing more of them. Is Obama blind, deaf, and dumb?
Exactly. It needs to be shouted from the rooftops.
David Horowitz explained it well in, "Unholy Alliance, Radical Islam and the American Left." Hussein's administration is filled with them. They are not on the side of these United States. God help us.
Their actions make sense only when we accept the fact that they purposely do not act in the best interests of our country. The American Left has the same short term goal as the terrorists; neuter the West as a force against Islam.
