US Releases Names of 55 Guantanamo Detainees
ABC News (AP) ^ | September 22, 2012 | DANICA COTO

Posted on 09/22/2012 8:37:23 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

The U.S. Justice Department on Friday made public the names of 55 Guantanamo prisoners who have been approved for transfer to the custody of other countries, releasing information sought by human rights organizations.

The announcement, which reverses a 2009 decision, was a surprise to organizations that had filed FOIA requests seeking the information.

"We did not expect this," said Omar Farah, attorney for the Center for Constitutional Rights. "This is an important development."

This article is very revealing about the status of the remaining detanees at GITMO.

Is Obozo being blackmailed into releasing them to quieten the Middle East before the November Elections?

Or is he just taking care of his Muslim friends?

"For I will stand with them, should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

When he said that, nobody knew that the ugly winds were those FROM Muslims toward the rest of the world.

Wow, what a relief.

Now that these guys will be released, there will be no more burning Obama in effigy in their home countries, and Netanyahu will stop calling in the middle of football. Flowers will bloom, birds will sing, and children everywhere will do their homework without nagging.

It’s a good thing we have a Nobel Peace Prize Winner for a President!

Wait. I just had a tin foil hat moment. What if Obama is releasing these guys because he knows he will lose. They will be trouble for President Romney, and everybody will wish for the good ol’ days of the Obama presidency. Then he will run for president in 2016, saying it’s time to bring back peace.

For now. Soon they will change it to something a little less conspicuous before moving to the US.

That is an interesting theory and you might be right. I think Obama knows he is going to lose, either he knows he is going to lose or he just flat out doesn’t give a crap anymore because he knows no matter what he does or says the media will let him get away with it. Do you think the Obama mania media will keep this silent, Im thinking they will, or they will just make excuses for him because they love him and they want him to win. This is what happens when you have a dictator in the White House who is adored by the press, the dictator answers to no one because he knows what he can get away with

We just had an ambassador MURDERED any someone transferred to another country from Gitmo and Obama's reaction is to DO MORE OF IT?

His appeasement policy is insane.

Kept in a cage for 10 years with nothing to do but pray to Allah that they be released to kill more infidels...

Nope. Not seeing a problem. In fact, let’s send them to live at 1600 Penn. ave, DC.

Or send them next door to me.

Getting an early start on his plans to scorch the earth between November and January.

There are simply no words to describe the evil he’s brought upon us.

It's crazy when the lefty attorney that put in the FOIA request didn't even expect the names released. Yet Obama still releases them. But, oh, yeah, do we have MItt Romney's 1986 tax returns?/S

I lean more toward taking care of his muslim friends. He’s been apologizing all over the place to them, whether in person or by proxy, for months.

This article may be of interest to you. I posted it on another thread. Zawahari’s brother is offering a hudna, truce (yea right). One of the conditions is to release the prisoners.

Or he knows what the change will be when Obozo is defeated in November.

Zawahari may be concerned about our fine military unbridled. It would be devastating for them. Gloves come of. Shock troops gate opened.

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

Anita MonCrief, who used to work for Acorn, but turned conservative after witnessing the dishonesty - has spoken openly regarding the ‘small donors’. Youtube has some of her clips.
