Gitmo detainees that were freed are taking up arms against the US, again, proving once a jihadi always a jihadi:
Commander Jeffrey Gordon said the detainees had, while in custody, falsely claimed to be farmers, truck drivers, cooks, small-arms merchants, low-level combatants or had offered other false explanations for being in Afghanistan.
“We are aware of dozens of cases where they have returned to militant activities, participated in anti-US propaganda or engaged in other activities,” said Commander Gordon.
“These former detainees successfully lied to US officials, sometimes for over three years,” he said. “Common cover stories include going to Afghanistan to buy medicines, to teach the Koran or to find a wife. Many of these stories appear so often, and are subsequently proven false, that we can only conclude that they are part of their terrorist training.”
Terrorist detainees lied? What a shock. Democrats are convinced that it’s the US military that’s evil and these terrorists were radicalized because they were detained.
Michelle Malkin responds:
Democrats: For freeing jihadists faster.
Put that on a bumper sticker.
Chalk another one up to the genius liberals who assert (with no proof whatsoever, of course) that these people are simply innocents swept up in BOOSH’s massive power grab for world domination.
In March, Democrat Jim Moran said Gitmo should be closed and all the detainees moved to the US and housed in Quantico. Considering how quickly those who have been released have returned to hostilities against the US, this idea sounds even worse than before.
