Obama to Release One Third of Gitmo Inmates (insanity)
Breitbart ^ | 22 Sep 2012, 10:21 AM PDT | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 09/22/2012 7:22:58 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

President Barack Obama is about to release or transfer 55 Gitmo prisoners, despite reports that the Libyan believed to be behind the killing of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens was a former Guantanamo inmate transferred to Libyan custody.

The large percentage of those scheduled to be released are Yemeni, according to a list made public by the Obama administration.

Obama stopped the release or transfer of Yemeni inmates in 2010, because the conditions in the country were viewed as too "unsettled" at the time.

A release or transfer of 55 inmates means Obama is moving out one third of the prisoners at Guantanamo. And while it doesn't represent a shutdown of the facility, it's certainly indicative of a move toward that end.

Ambassador & 3 other U.S. Citizens dead and the Liar-in-Chief want to do more for his Muslim friends.

What a crock.

He knows he is finished and will do his worst to the nation, if allowed.

November cannot come soon enough.

Obozo Must GO!

Too “unsettled” my butt....IIRC nobody would take them at that time.

Geez... Wouldn’t it be nice to send them away with some Polonium-210 in their blood?

Of course, Obama would rather just sloppily make out with each and every scumbag released.

Ok this now gives Romney the opportunity to go on the Sunday shows and pound the desk and show how mad this country is. He has to illustrate how they lied, how he has people in the Justice dept that let these guys out of GITMO and how Obama worked with the very people in the uprising that killed our ambassador. He needs to be MAD.

First he sends OWS idiots to Middle East Countries (i.e. Iran +) Then turns the devils out of GITMO. That should be enough to ignite the entire Muslim World.

That’s not what this list says. These people are people who were “approved” for release by a task force back in 2010, but have not been released (and likely will not be released for the foreseeable future) because the administration can’t find a country to take them.

I believe he will release them all just out of spite if he loses. Maybe grant amnesty to all the illegals and pardon a large number of prisoners.

Not a “release”. Obama is simply transferring his men from Gitmo to Yemen. They have tasks there.

It has in the past.

Our fearless leader is an idiot, a buffoon (no offence to buffoons) and a total ass. I have lost friends because I have told them what an idiot this clown is ... good riddance to friends that are unable (or unwilling) to see how this freaktoid is destroying MY country.

In days gone by, those that are presently housed at Getmo would have spent their last moments in front of a fire squad. We let them loose on the promise that they will not engage in combat again.

Fools we are for buy into this. I’m sure that many a belly laugh is had by al-qaeda over glasses of goats milk as they hear about this.

The list appears to have been compiled by DOJ. This article includes more information about this list, and notes that:

"The government's move has no immediate, practical effect on the inmates' detention. Inclusion on the list does not mean that the U.S. has absolved them of any wrongdoing or that it believes they pose no threat, and there was no indication of when any might be sent elsewhere."

well we know conditions in muslim conditions are better now, right? Folks this means Obama is 'negotiating' with terrorists. He is releasing terrorists in exchange for presumed empty promises that they will stop rioting (sarcasm). However this is the only rationale that explains it.

Obama meets with Omar Abdel-Rahman (the Blind Sheik for those in Rio Linda) prior to release.

Obama: " OK Abdel-Rahman, I got your one way to Cairo on e-bay"

Omar: "you can call me Omar"

Obama: "Thanks Omar...and I got you a disguise as those pesky FReepers have an eye out for you"

Omar: "Let me consult with you later on that"

Obama: "I got it covered, what with the FEMA camps and a billion rounds of ammo."

Omar: "Keep up the good work my brother from another mother"

Obama: "And how was the American culture field trip to a noodling competition ?

Omar" "Great....I caught an alligator."

He and his drone assassin group @ the WH are running out of easy drone targets so he needs to release some of his little pets from his petting zoo. He’s probably got them tagged so they’ll be easier to track.

Obama broke the number 1 rule... WE DON’T NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORIST! Al Qaeda released a video telling Obama to release their prisoners and send our troops home and they will end the protests. Since then, 132 Mexican prisoners walk out the front door of a Mexican prison, now we hear 55 terrorist are leaving Club Gitmo and after an act of terrorism against the United States; we are moving out 33,000 troops from Afghanistan?! If this wasn’t a part of a negotiation then I don’t know what is. Doesn’t this seem like its worth looking into?

“this man is for sale..prolly got millions”

I agree, with a bit of elaboration. When Obama ran in 2008, his two Palestinian roommates from college ran his internet site for donations to his campaign. The donations were from alleged “small donors”, and none of the donors were kept track of, according to election law requirements, so no one knew, but many suspected, that many if not most of these donors were from foreign countries, primarily Arab countries. In other words, illegal donations to his campaign from foreign sources. The same is undoubtedly happening this time; someone should look into how Obama is collecting donations on-line this time around.

Now, the Arabs know they are making illegal donations to his campaign, Obama knows they know, in other words they could blow the whistle on Obama at any time as to how Obama has been collecting donations to his campaign. Thus, they can and undoubtedly are blackmailing Obama for the last four years, and for the next four years if he wins again. The Arabs have undoubtedly subsidized Obama for years now to keep him in office, as many see him as peripherally one of their own, especially with his name, Barak “Hussein” Obama. Just as long as Obama keeps marching to their orders on all things Muzzie, such as Obama’s stance on Israel, Gitmo prisoners, public pro-Muzzie statements, passing of our taxpayer money to Muzzie states, pro-Arab business deals, anti-Israel public statements, generous immigration policy towards Arabs seeking to emigrate to the U.S., treating Jihad terrorism attacks as “criminal cases”, going after Christians in U.S. while doing CAIR’s bidding on Islamic matters, need I go on?

In other words, our President has been in the past, currently is, and will be in the future, blackmailed by the Muzzies to do his bidding, which isn’t a hard stance for Obama to adhere to as he is on their side to begin with. So, a disaster for our country, a true Manchurian Prez and candidate, who will get a pass by the Dem left and the MSM (same thing), while our country is being destroyed before our very eyes. And the sheeple know not what they are about to do, if the demographics have changed that much, and will vote Obama back in. There is only one thing that can thwart this, and that is a massive turnout of the true Americans left in this country on election day. It is a dire necessity for everyone to do their civic duty on November 6th and vote this Manchurian President out of office and into the rubbish heap of history.
