According to news sources, five Yemeni terror suspects from Guantanamo Bay have been released – four of them to the country of Oman – which is, incidentally, next to Yemen. Why would the Obama Administration release known terror suspects to a vicinity so close to where their terrorist activity originated? In President Obama’s latest push to close Guantanamo Bay, the release of these latest five terrorist suspects brings the detention center’s number down to 122.
In December of 2014, the Obama Administration released for resettlement five other prisoners to the nation of Kazakhstan, which – by the way – is the country that produced the child executioner who was posted in yesterday’s article. Clearly, terrorism is alive and well in Kazakhstan.
Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte, who referred to Yemen as the “Wild West” for terrorists, warned of fresh terrorist threats yesterday during a news conference when she said,
"Now is not the time to be emptying Guantanamo."
In spite of repeated warnings to keep terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, opinions on closing the prison have changed little since 2009 with 66 percent of Americans polled by Gallup indicating that they are against Guantanamo’s closure. Nevertheless, the President of the United States continues to thwart the will of the people with his Lone Ranger governing tactics.
