Skip to comments.Obama to Release One Third of Gitmo Inmates (insanity)
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.

Yep, and it is going to get REAL UGLY!
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.
What List? Whose List?
Surely not the State Department List? Which “task force”? Homeland Security? Military?
Some how I am not buying that this is OK.
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.
Yep, I bet they do. Just like in Libya.
They are “freedom fighters” don’t you know? /Extreme Sarcasm
"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.
We ain’t seen nothin’ yet....
just wait until he’s a lame duck from November to January. He’ll probably declare Jihad on the US himself.
I’m good with that too. Doesn’t Ebola kill so fast it’s hard to spread enough unless in a city?
Also, why wouldn’t plague work?
Romney needs to hammer this bastard on this now once confirmed. The campaign ads write themselves.
“compiled by DOJ”
OHhhh! You mean “Eric the Red’s” List. The one who is eternally protected by Obozo because he has the “FBI Files”.
Wooo Hooo that give me confidence in who is on the list and that this will be handled properly. Remember Fast & Furious?
hee hee hee
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."
... another theory ... He promised to close down Gitmo, right? I’ll bet he wants to show his liberal hacks how he is making progress. It could be something as stupid as that
BP spreads primarily by flea bite, and rarely by contact.
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.
