Last week, this unequivocal declaration sounded like a micalculation and misread of the situation:
These five guys are not a threat to the United States, says Clinton. They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Its up to those two countries to make the decision once and for all that these are threats to them. So I think we may be kind of missing the bigger picture here. We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped, we try to rescue everybody.
Tonight, talking to Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier on Fox News, Clinton expanded on her thoughts:
In Qatar with an agreement that has been entered into, they are supposed to be constrained from what they can do, and certainly they are not supposed to be permitted to travel, Clinton explained. In that situation, they are not a threat.
Those five men they are, right now, not a danger if they are kept where they are supposed to be kept, but we still have to worry about the Taliban and everything they could be doing, she added.
I feel like there was someone who had concerns about Qatar’s willingness and ability to secure such prisoners in 2009. Ahh, yes, it was Hillary’s State Department:
The State Department’s concerns about Qatar’s supervision of released militants were detailed in a diplomatic cable dated February 2009 by the U.S. embassy in Doha, Qatar’s capital, citing the case of Jarallah al-Marri, a former Guantanamo detainee released to Qatar in July 2008.
In the cable, the U.S. embassy criticized Qatar for failing to follow through on promises to bar al Marri from leaving Qatar, noting he made two trips to Britain since his release from Guantanamo, and that during his second visit, in early 2009, British authorities arrested him.
I, for one, think Hillary did a fabulous job with Greta tonight.
Where’s the R. Lee Ermy photo of him shouting “you cannot be this stupid- this level of stupidity does not exist”
This is the kind of thinking that gets Americans killed. Osama wasn’t in New Yawk on 09-11-2001.
Typical arrogant dismissive LIB asshat. LIAR...Benghazi!
I don't know, but it sure would be appropriate here.
She really is brain damaged!
That photo is a joke, right?
Considering that that is Glenn Close with Greta?
Hillary on Taliban Five: Theyre not a threat to the U.S. because theyre going to be in Qatar
Now this was a stupid thing to say...
for politics or not..
She better change that real quick because it s just a matter of time...
They weren't captured in The US so why was they in Camp Gitmo in the first place?
Was is there a photo of Glenn Close taking to Greta Van Susteren?
Hillary, we have these things called telephones, email, video chat... all kinds of modern, common ccommunications. You don’t have to be someplace to direct actions and events there. You know, like protecting an embassy...
The tax-exempt, nonprofit Clinton foundation lists Brunei along with Kuwait, Oman and Qatar (new home of the Gitmo Five) as donors that gave between $1 million and $5 million through last year.
The Clinton foundation itself confirmed the 2002 Brunei donation: "The Clinton Foundation's impact would not be possible without the generous support of our donors," the foundation's website reads. "Their contributions have made a difference in the lives of tens of millions across the world." Read more at foxnews.com ...
In two years....when the five have disappeared into the sands of the Middle East and 9-11 version 2.0 occurs....and the CIA figures out that at least one...maybe even two....of these guys were responsible...what stone will Hillary and the rest of the administration hide under? It won’t matter what NBC’s journalists pretend to misjudge or just skip over...there will be an awful lot of us who will hold more than a normal typical grudge.
WHY is there...
Too bad this will never appear in a GOPe campaign ad following the next major attack, and preceding her election to the office of the president...
Yet, the lying HilLiarY still won’t say she is running for office.
That statement may come back to haunt her.
Hillary is a bigger threat to Americans and she is still freely walking among us.
