White House: No matter what, we're sending Gitmo prisoners back to Yemen
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | Jan. 3, 2010 | Byron York

Posted on 01/03/2010 9:01:58 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

As Susan notes below, a bipartisan group of lawmakers is urging the Obama White House not to go forward with plans to send a number of Yemeni terrorists now being held in the Guantanamo Bay detention facility back to their home country. But the Obama White House insists it will continue to send those Gitmo inmates to Yemen -- a country now recognized as a hotbed of terrorism so dangerous that the U.S. has decided to close its embassy there.

On Fox News Sunday, top White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said the administration "absolutely" intends to keep sending Guantanamo prisoners to Yemen. The administration has sent seven detainees to the country, Brennan said, with six of those sent in December. "Several of those detainees were put into Yemeni custody right away," Brennan said. He did not elaborate on how many is "several" or where the other Guantanamo inmates sent to Yemen might be today. But he said the U.S. has faith in Yemen to handle the situation. "We've had close dialogue with the Yemeni government about the expectations that we have as far as what they're supposed to do when these detainees go back," Brennan said.

Given that, host Chris Wallace asked, "You are going to consider on a case-by-case basis sending more Yemenis back to Yemen?"

"Absolutely," said Brennan.

A revolving door. Back to Yemen. Get a Nigeria passport and head to Amsterdam. Fill shorts with explosives and board plane for USA. If bomb works 72 virgin Helen Thomas look alike await. If not ACLU lawyers, plea bargains, a green card, and a SBA loan to open a 7/11. Can’t loose.

They really cannot be this dumb, can they? What do they think the reaction will be if/when of these released terrorists is caught in an attack on the US or our citizens?

If this occurs, it will knock another 5 points off Bam’s already deteriorating approval ratings.

Just from a political standpoint, it makes absolutely no sense. Unless they want to talk about anything but healthcare .... :-)

Why not just send them back on Air Force One, Then give them some C-4, some detonators, 5,000 rounds of AK ammo and with our sincere apologies for being “mean” to them.

Obama is anti-American. He IS the enemy within. He, and each and every Leftist POS running our government right this minute is an enemy within.

The Bureaus throughout our government are led by Leftist enemies within, and staffed by their useful idiots. The Bureaucracies are flush with Leftists, and their sycophants.

GOD willing we gain control of our Nation once again this coming November, and by an overwhelming number as that is what it will take to counter the fraud already being set up to thwart our will, and when we do we must never, ever fall asleep again.

Our new Congress with Representation of our will must then proceed to de-Left, as in fumigate our entire government, and reestablish our Leftist battered Constitution.

end rant.

Every politician sees defense of the country as a winning subject. Look at the popularity surges Presidents get in times of war (Bush 1 & 2 most recently).

Its a no brainer, let's talk about something that makes us look good .... even if we are incompetent at it!

Is there another word that is lower than the words idiot, imbecile, or moron? Because if there is, it should be used to describe this administration.

How about idbecon? A multiplication of the three? Kind of like 0.1 x 0.1 = 0.01.

Yes and Zero and whole raft of his enablers need to be tried for treason and find out what happens to people who commit treason.

I cannot imagine that anyone with half sense and one eye or even an idiot libtard would think sending those people back to Yemen is reasonable.

“I am so angry at that freak in the White House I can’t see straight.”

Hahaha every day I think I can’t get more upset that we have a Moslem Marxist in the Oval Office.

Yet every day, he pulls some CRAZY stunt that tops all his previous crazy stunts.

He should go into the movie business — it’s almost impossible to keep topping yourself DAY AFTER DAY for a year. Nobody else can do it.

"But we're going to do it in the right way, because Guantanamo should be closed. It was used as a propaganda tool by al-Qaeda, and the president is still committed to it."

So what if al Qaeda used Gitmo as propaganda? If they don't have that, they'll just find something else, real or imagined. Totally stupid to close Guantanamo, but most stupid of all to close it because of what al Qaeda might say. The macho Arabs are laughing their asses off at this, and also the released prisoners who went right back to their jihadi ways.

Why doesn't this asshole president just order the Air Force to nuke an American city.

It'd save everyone a lot of time and energy, and we'd be "shovel ready" to clean up and bury the dead American bodies.

I never visit the DU site...in fact in 10/08, that site is what drove me to FR and I knew I was home. I vowed never to go back there but have noticed that some FReepers keep an eye on them.......what are they saying over there? Are there any of them concerned with any of these things going on? Anyone here visited recently?

Lord, these people are knuckleheads.

Thank God I hadn't just taken a sip of hot coffee before reading your post! Knuckleheads indeed!

Or maybe not...just suppose that the plan to stay in power requires ongoing terrorist threats. What better way to facilitate this than through a.) a public trial in New York where all of our methods and intel will be revealed to the world, and b.) supplying terrorist training camps with experienced terrorists.

You can pass me the tinfoil, but there just might be something to this.

That bore repeating. And to posters above who think they are knuckleheads or idiots, nothing could be further from the truth.

What we're seeing on a daily and even hourly basis is the carefully planned destruction of America and they're doing a hell of a good job. If you're incensed now, you better gather yourself because they are just starting.

Every second they are in power makes the task ahead much more difficult.

Send them to Yemen so they can recconnect with Al Qaeda,pick up a few shekels, go to Ghana, get a one way ticket to Detroit via Amsterdam, so they can spread their guts interming;ed with thise of 300 other air craft passengers to be spread over an American city near you.

That should bring up Obama's poll ratings pronto!

Why not take all the Yemeni terrorists we have captured and make them sort of a praetorian guard for nobama in the White House? That way they can be watched, occupied and compensated all in one fell swoop.
