    Obama administration officials refused to fully explain to key senators the justification for freeing five senior Taliban leaders that the White House had once considered to be among the most dangerous prisoners being held in the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, according to senior Senate insiders familiar with a closed-door briefing held Tuesday for members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Top Obama administration officials continued to defend the decision to skirt U.S. law and not inform Congress about the deal, telling lawmakers that “it was worth it; period,” according to one Senate insider familiar with Tuesday’s classified briefing. Officials maintained...

    June 16, 2014, Vol. 19, No. 38 Late in the afternoon of Saturday, May 31, Barack Obama strode confidently to a lectern in the White House Rose Garden flanked by the parents of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier who had gone missing from his platoon in the mountains of Afghanistan in June 2009. “This morning I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home,” Obama said. The president thanked service members who “recovered Sergeant Bergdahl and brought him safely out of harm’s way.” Obama also expressed gratitude...

    Chuck Hagel, visiting troops in Afghanistan, was met with silence when he told a group of them in a Bagram Air Field hangar: “This is a happy day. We got one of our own back.” They know. The silence is deafening — watch. CBS News: Questions persisted, too, about the circumstances of Bergdahl’s 2009 capture. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel declined to comment on earlier reports that the sergeant had walked away from his unit, disillusioned with the war. Such matters “will be dealt with later,” Hagel said.

    Question for FReeperdom members who have experience with the Remington 7XX series in .308. Bought a slightly used rifle, a 770. Had it inspected by the 'smith at the gun store, zero'd for 200 yds. Son took it shooting yesterday and intermittently when he opened the action the bolt would slide all the out the rear, requiring re-assembly insertion. He was shooting with an experienced 7XX friend who of course made him check the release lever, and they found no obvious fault. Any thoughts on what to check for or inspect prior to letting the 'smithy look at it for...

    A former Congressman has accused President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder of a racial ulterior motive in a massive early prison release planned for up to 10,000 drug dealers. Ernest Istook, a former U.S. Congressman and writer for the Washington Times, pointed out on his radio program that “Obama claims minorities usually get longer terms than whites, so he wants to shorten their time served. He says letting them out of prison early will save taxpayers money.” Most of the prisoners were convicted for crack cocaine violations, almost always for dealing or possession with intent to sell. Istook...

    The Al Qaeda terrorist—Osama Bin Laden’s bodyguard—determined to be “too dangerous to be released” from Guantanamo just a few years ago will be freed from the military prison because President Obama’s new parole board found he no longer poses a “significant threat to the United States.” The shocking about-face comes on the heels of mainstream news reports disclosing that a former Guantanamo detainee , Sufian bin Qumu, participated in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Libya. Bin Qumu was released from the prison at the U.S. naval base in Cuba despite having historic ties to the...

Netanyahu had tied Pollard’s release to talks with the Palestinians in the past. He reached a deal with former US president Bill Clinton to commute Pollard’s sentence in 1998 as part of the Wye River Accord, but Clinton reneged on the deal after then-CIA director George Tenet threatened to quit. The prime minister reportedly asked the US for...

The Afghan government has long demanded that Pakistan release Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the Taliban's former deputy leader. He was arrested in a joint raid with the CIA in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi in 2010. Sartaj Aziz, adviser to the Pakistani prime minister on national security and foreign affairs, said the government has agreed to release Baradar to help the...

Additionally, the release itself will take place in the middle of the night, and not in broad daylight.

Relatives and friends of the victims have protested the decision to release these killers. Yet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet withstood these pressures and ordered their release.

According to the report, Netanyahu may prefer not to bring the release of terrorists to the full Cabinet for approval, but rather to the smaller “Security and Diplomacy Cabinet.” However, Bayit Yehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett, who is a member of the smaller forum as well, may...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif.—California may speed up the release of some inmates while allowing other inmates with a violent history to become firefighters, under a proposal to cut crowding in state prisons filed by Gov. Jerry Brown late Thursday night. Brown filed the plan "under protest," said Corrections Secretary Jeffrey Beard. Brown warned that the options he presented to the court would undermine public safety, and Beard reiterated that the state plans to appeal in an attempt to avoid going through with the measures. The governor's plan calls for increasing early release credits for inmates and paroling elderly and incapacitated prisoners, while...

    WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano promised to release more illegal immigrants into the United States, saying the budget sequester has left her no choice. Several hundred detainees have already released because of the sequester, she insisted. They were released on bail, or because their legal status had changed, she said. “We’re going to continue to do that … for the foreseeable future,” Napolitano said at a March 4 breakfast meeting hosted by Politico. “We are going to manage our way through this by identifying the lowest risk detainees, and putting them into some kind of alternative to release.”

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...

In the 2008 primary, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton for not releasing papers from her eight years time as First Lady–but failed to produce any papers from his eight years in Springfield. “They could have been thrown out,” he said. 9. Academic transcripts. His supposed academic brilliance was a major selling point, but Obama (by his own admission) was a mediocre student.

The special prosecutor's office on Friday refused to make that evidence public -- even though an attorney fighting for the public's access insists Friday...

    The national legislative director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Corey Sailor, said it would be best for Pakistan to release Asia Bibi, a Christian woman sentenced to death by hanging for alleged blasphemy against Islam’s prophet Mohammed. Outside FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., CNSNews.com asked CAIR’s Sailor: “Asia Bibi, a Christian, has been charged with blasphemy in Pakistan, which calls for the execution or life imprisonment of those who defame Mohammed. Do you think Pakistani President [Asif Ali] Zardari should pardon her given that she is denying the accusations?”

    After a delay of more than two days, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has "decided to follow the law" and release the names, ranks, hometowns and units of those killed in the Aug. 6 Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan, Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said Wednesday. The names will be released in the next 24 hours. Panetta "never intended not to release the names," Lapan said, explaining that a delay in their release was the result of a request from military commanders in the Special Operations community who wanted to review the policy of releasing names "because of possible (security) implications

    Britain will free Islamic Movement radical Raad Salah on Monday if he agrees to conditions, including wearing an electronic tag and a ban on public speaking. Salah, who has been arrested, jailed and freed on several times in Israel for incitement, violence and attacking policemen, was taken into custody after British authorities mistakenly allowed him into the country. His supporters protested the detention order, calling Salah a “man of peace” although he is blacklisted from Britain. His attorneys appealed the order and told judges that he is not a security risk. The British Home Office agreed to release him Monday...
