Default Ten detainees leaving Gitmo in bulk transfer Thursday, defense officials say

Pen and Phone is at it again, determined to pander to his far Left base no matter the law or the adverse impact to American troops.

Quote:
The U.S. military is preparing a bulk transfer of 10 detainees on Thursday from its detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, two defense officials told Fox News.

The transfer, amounting to about 10 percent of the remaining prisoners, marks the largest group of detainees to be shipped out of the camp since Defense Secretary Ash Carter informed Congress in December his department would transfer a wave of detainees at the beginning of 2016.
The administration refuses to list the names of detainees being released to avoid "controversy." Don't worry Obama would never again do something like release 5 top Taliban commanders without notifying Congress as required by law. Oh wait. Obviously everyone else is too stupid to understand so the names of this latest batch have to be withheld.

Quote:
White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, on “Fox News Sunday,” vowed that President Obama will close the Guantanamo Bay detainee facility before his presidency ends. McDonough sidestepped the question of whether the president would use his executive powers to close the facility, if Congress continues to resist.
It takes zero insight to see that unless Obama gets what he wants, he will use his self anointed executive power to close Gitmo, transferring prisoners to the US if needed.

Taking Obama's obsession with his legacy into account it is implausible to believe he will leave the Gitmo facility intact so it could be reopened in the future. What better way to cement his cozy relationship with the brutal Castro dictatorship than to hand over Gitmo to them? Of course then the deep water port at Gitmo will be a perfect base for the Chinese or Russian navy. Thanks Mr President.

Obama should just transfer out all the 150 or so detainees left to somewhere else then use the facility as a holding place for the refugees until they can be properly vetted as promised.

And the republican senate and house do nothing to stop this POS!

This amounts to giving aid and comfort to the enemy, can anyone say TREASON?

Pisses me off the Obama admin and media are referring to this as a "transfer." It isn't. It's a release. These high-value and dangerous terrorists are headed to Oman, where they will be temporarily detained and then released, where they'll most likely jump the border and rejoin Al Qaeda.

Indeed, relax it is not releasing terrorists from a secure detention an environment where they can resume jihad, it is a magical process called "transfer" that converts them into peace loving, tolerant advocates of democracy. Never mind that they return to killing US soldiers and civilians, it is OK because it is labeled transfer.

More republican Poutrage. Look at this figure

In 2013, with a similar-size budget but more detainees, the cost worked out to about $2.7 million per detainee.

For comparison, inmates at high-security federal prisons cost about $34,000 per year on average, as of 2012.

Funny how the right whines about spending but they are OK with this cost. But they don't want these people in a prison here. They just want to keep these people in Gitmo costing millions per year per person until?? They rot?

Hmmm...

Basically Obama is putting his dumb-ass promise to close Gitmo over the safety of the world.

Quote:
But the moves have heightened security concerns, as some of the latest detainees being shipped out were deemed medium- or high-risk prisoners.
Quote:
“All these guys are the ‘hardcore’ type; if not, they would have been transferred earlier,” said one official familiar with the list of those being transferred Thursday.
Quote:
The Omani Foreign Ministry reportedly described the move as a “temporary stay.”
Quote:
It is estimated that 30 percent of detainees transferred out of the prison re-engage or are suspected of re-engaging in hostile activities, according to the Department of Defense.
Quote:
The Pentagon announced the most recent transfer, Muhammed Abd Al Rahman Awn Al-Shamrani, on Monday – the fourth so far this year. Al-Shamrani had been held in Cuba for 14 years and, according to his leaked prisoner file, was suspected of Al Qaeda ties. He was deemed a “high threat” to the United States, according to a U.S. military memo recommending continued detention in 2008. If released without “close supervision,” the memo warned, Shamrani will “immediately seek out prior [Al Qaeda] associates and reengage in hostilities.”

He was transferred to his home country of Saudi Arabia.

Try not to pee yourself Hairy. Do you know there are thousands of bad guys in the Middle East that are not in our prisons and they don't cost us anything.
