Gitmo: ‘Obama Administration Rushing To … Release As Many Prisoners As Possible’
‘There Have Been Americans That Have Died Because Of Gitmo Detainees’
SEN. KELLY AYOTTE (R-NH):“[T]he administration continues to dangerously release terrorists from Guantanamo and unnecessarily put Americans at increased risk in order to fulfill a misguided campaign promise - all while refusing to level with the American people regarding the detainees' terrorist risks, activities, and affiliations.”(Sen. Ayotte, Press Release, 4/18/2016)
“Of the 80 remaining detainees, 30 have been cleared for an overseas transfer. Most will leave starting in late June and continuing into July, according to a U.S. official. Those prisoners will go to a number of countries, including at least one in Europe, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the administration had not authorized public release of the information.” (“Obama Administration Rushing To Shrink Ranks At Guantanamo,” AP, 6/5/16)

“In a message released Thursday on the social media messaging app Telegram and attributed to Ibrahim Qosi,Qosi told fighters in Somalia to ‘continue the raid with a raid, and light up the ground beneath the feet of the Crusaders and team them that the lands of Islam are a fortress that is not allowed to the disbelievers, and a graveyard for the invaders,' according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group. 'Victory is brought by blood and suffering, not by promises and wishes from every libertine,’ he said.” (“Freed Guantanamo Bay Detainee Promotes Jihad in Somalia,” ABC News, 2/26/2016)
“Though the detainee file describes Qosi as ‘high risk’ and of ‘high intelligence value,’ he was released from Guantanamo Bay in July 2012 after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy and supporting terrorism. He had originally been sentenced to 14 years, but the sentence was reduced to two . . . At the time of his release to Sudan, the Pentagon said the U.S. had coordinated with Sudan's government to ensure ‘appropriate security and humane treatment measures’ for Qosi. Butby late 2014, Qosi had reportedly joined al Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen, AQAP, and shortly thereafter became one of its senior members.”(“Freed Guantanamo Bay Detainee Promotes Jihad in Somalia,” ABC News, 2/26/2016)
