(WaPo) Facing a potential showdown with Congress, the Pentagon is racing to release dozens of more GITMO prisoners in the coming months before lawmakers can scuttle a lame-duck Obama’s intentions to close the prison before the end of his term.
As a first step, the Obama Administration plans to send back to the battlefield 10 Islamic Jihadists, in all the Pentagon hopes they’ll be able to release up to 57 inmates before the end of the year.
On Thursday, Obama acknowledged the killing instead of capturing and arresting two accused Jihadist American citizens (Adam Gadhan from California and Ahmed Farouq) by a drone strike in Pakistan in January, not only depriving them of their 5th Amendment ‘Due Process’ rights but likewise forever losing any actionable intelligence they may have been able to provide.
What’s Obama up to? He’ll deprive American citizen accused Jihadists of their civil rights by killing them, while releasing non-citizen Jihadists from GITMO that were picked up on the battlefield waging war, conducting terrorist activities and killing U.S. Soldiers.
- Flashback: Remember in 2012 Michelle Malkin wrote here about former GITMO Jihadist Omar Khadr, released by Obama after being found guilty of five charges related to the battlefield killing of American Hero SFC Christopher Speer in 2002
Where is the justice for Army Combat Medic SFC Christopher Speer, his widow and their families, together with all of the other American Heroes killed by former and current GITMO prisoners that Obama would rather have one not remember, as he schedules the release of more Islamic Jihadists back to the fight?
