Obama is hoping to cement sometime of historical legacy and transferring another 18 Guantanamo terrorist. He’s going to brag that he shut it down, hoping the history books are kind to him and omit the fact that he kept Guantanamo Bay open for all but like 15 days of his presidency.
Realize, the United States has risked and lost countless military lives in the search and capture of theses islamic extremist terrorist and now Obama is just releasing them from Gitmo so they can go back to the battlefield to kill more of our troops.
From the Daily Mail:
The group being released will be drawn from those held at Guantanamo – who include an accused senior al Qaeda bomb-maker, the terror group’s top financial manager, and two intended 9/11 hijackers, who have all been held in the Cuba-based U.S. detention facility for more than a decade.
According to a military source briefed on the process, as total of 22 detainees are being prepared for transfer out of the camp, also known as Gitmo, before January 20.
On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon announced the ‘transfer’ of four detainees to Saudi Arabia – Yemenis Salem Ahmed Hadi, Mohammed Ghanim, Mohammed Bawazir, and Abdullah al Shabli.
A source told DailyMail.com there will be three more sets of transfers before Obama leaves office on January 20.
Although the White House has not specified which inmates will be transferred next – or which foreign countries have agreed to accept them – it has indicated that this will be a priority for Obama in his final days in office.
‘I can’t speak to any individual notifications that have been made to Congress or give you a specific preview about upcoming transfers,’ said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.
