Obama releasing 'reformed' Guantanamo prisoners for reasons including having taken up yoga
DailyMail ^ | 13:22 EST, 8 June 2014 | By Alex Greig and Associated Press

President Barack Obama is moving ahead with his push to close the Guantanamo Bay prison despite the uproar over the exchange of five Taliban prisoners for a captured American soldier, an administration official said Thursday.

The Periodic Review Board has determined that more former 'forever prisoners,' including one who says he has been reformed by practicing yoga and another who was a bodyguard for Bin Laden but now wants to start a 'milk and honey farm' are fit for release to their homelands or repatriation.

Ghaleb Nasser al Bihani, 35, told a parole board in April that he had read the biographies of Dr Martin Luther King Jr and the Dalai Lama and aspired to live 'an ordinary life.'

They had a program on the rehab of these bas***** showing them painting pictures...therapy they called it.

Alas....I think it was 40% (probably more) that went back to being the murderous bas***** they are.

Release them from 30,000 feet without parachutes. Save money on landing and taking off again.

If this doesn’t send the Obama administration up in flames via impeachment, nothing will. The military must be in hysterics.

What a petulant little prick - he knows the American people are against this nonsense, so he doubles down and flashes the bird to us. Where are the republicrats on this? Is Boehner passed out on the 19th hole somewhere? I’ve had it.

I wish this was just a final act of insanity but I fear he's just getting started. He wants rioting in the streets.

Please, please, please tell me this is satire. We cannot get one marine out of a Mexican jail there on bogus charges, a Christian woman and her child languish in a Sudanese prison, and Obama's priority is releasing terrorists because they take up yoga?

He wants rioting in the streets.

He won't get it from us on the right.

It's when things spiral out of control and people don't know where their next meal is coming from.

THAT is when things go Mad-Max and Fallout.

The Progressives think they can control the Chaos and Rioting for political ends, after all never let a crisis go to waste because you can do things that you couldn't do before.

But they will find their dream of control is just that. A Dream.

They will be consumed too.

I don’t think 1 in 10... MAYBE 2 in 10 libs with guns has the guts to use them or the skill if they did. Certainly not like the commies of old. The comparative few that DO know how and will use them will get overwhelmed.

Be sure to pay attention to Bergdahl now, Obama staged that Rose Garden stunt just for you.

Meanwhile this is the true agenda. Oh that Obama treason, returning enemy commanders to an enemy who has not surrendered and aiding a terrorist organization, don’t worry about that.

The average union goon is a brain dead moron that would run at the first sign of real rioting. Most are wholly committed to their own posterior. And again, the few hardcore would be overwhelmed.

There are very few Bill Ayres types out there. Liberalism in it’s American form bred the physical fight out of many adherents.

Do you really think that would happen? The one thing keeping Obama in office have been threats of minorities burning down cities and then marching into the suburbs. A military coup happening would completely shake up the US, something I think is going to happen anyway.

Exactly; thankfully Paris wasn’t incinerated like Hitler wanted it to be.

IIRC, a German General, Von Choltitz, refused to carry out the order. I've read the various theories as to why, but the one that reads most true is that he was trying to save his own life. Most of the high level nazis realized they'd lost the war and were looking for ways to survive its end. Von Choltitz knew that no matter what else he'd done, if he burned Paris the Alies WOULD burn him. And of course, if he didn't burn Paris, and violated orders to do so, he could claim to be the protector of Paris.

It apparently worked - he wasn't put to death. In fact he was released from prison after only two years.
