Just think, Barky wants to close GITMO and release all of them.
An Obama administration envoy for closing the Guantanamo Bay prison confirmed Wednesday that Americans have died as a result of the release of an unspecified number of prisoners from the facility.
Paul Lewis, the Department of Defense’s special envoy for Guantanamo Closure, told a House Foreign Affairs Committee that some Americans have died at the hand of at least one released detainee, although he would not say in an unclassified setting exactly how many or the circumstance surrounding their deaths.
Lewis was responding to a question from Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., who asked how many lives have been lost by terrorists who went back to fight after the U.S. government released them from the prison at Guantanamo Bay. Lewis first said he could only talk about the incidents in a classified setting, a statement Rohrabacher challenged.
“Classified?” he asked. “Is it over 10?”
“What I can tell you is that unfortunately, there have been Americans who have died because of [released] Guantanamo detainees,” Lewis said.
Rohrabacher argued back that the administration is allowing for the deaths of “innocent people” in their calculations over releasing detainees from the facility.
“As far as I’m concerned, if one child is saved because she would have been blown up by someone being released, it’s better to keep all 90 of those people in Gitmo,” Rohrabacher responded, adding that the scenario “disgusts” him.
……Rohrabacher dismissed arguments from the Obama and George W. Bush administrations that the facility should be shuttered because it serves as a terrorist recruiting tool.
“I think the better recruiting tool today is when our government, especially this administration, is perceived as being weak,” he said. “I think terrorists are recruited not because we’ve held other terrorists in prison, but because we look like we’re weak and cannot deal with the challenge.”
The California Republican suggested that the attitude, European allies and “some others” pressing the U.S. to close the island prison “may well be changing in the next six months or so when they realize the slaughter that is taking place in Paris and now in Brussels, Belgium, is part of an international movement to destroy Western civilization and replace it with a caliphate.”
There have been dozens of examples where the released muzzie thugs pick up where they left off.
Obama is a stupid, dangerous scatterbrain, with no clue how to run a country or a war. The “community organizer” in the White House thinks his Dhimmi approach is a nifty idea. He already proved what an abject shitbag he is by trading five of the worst Taliban thugs at GITMO for a deserter.
If GITMO is emptied, there will be a whole fucking battalion of terrorists ready to rejoin the jihad.
