On the very day, that He Who Walks on Water, B.Hussein Obama, announced his latest plan to close Gitmo, we learn a former detainee from that facility was arrested trying to recruit fighters for ISIS.
Obama told us that keeping lunatics who want to murder as many of us as possible, like this Gitmo detainee, in a prison off shore is inconsistent with “our values,” or something.
From Stars and Stripes:
Spanish and Moroccan police on Tuesday arrested four suspected members of a jihadi cell that sought to recruit fighters for the Islamic State group, including one described as a former Guantanamo detainee who once fought with militants in Afghanistan.
Three people were arrested in Spain’s North African enclave city of Ceuta while a Moroccan was arrested in the Moroccan border town of Farkhana, next to Melilla, Spain’s other North African enclave, statements from the two nations’ interior ministries said.
One of those detained in Ceuta was the former Guantanamo detainee who was not named by Spanish authorities but described as “a leader who was trained in handling weapons, explosives and in military tactics.” After being captured in 2002 and held in Guantanamo, he was returned to Spain in 2004, said Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz.
And as Gateway Pundit reports:
“According to Obama’s own Director of National Intelligence, 117 former detainees are confirmed of returning to terror. 79 more detainees are suspected of returning to the fight.
That’s a confirmed recidivism rate of 18% and a confirmed-suspected recidivism rate of 30%.”
But at least we’re not acting “contrary to our values,” even if a few people might get murdered by jihadists lunatics. Let’s all be sure, though, to focus on the FBI’s phone ruse to persecute an awesome American company and violate everyone’s privacy in the interest of “national security.”
