The Obama administration's defense strategists have just stated , as many as 25%,and as little as 18% of released terrorist suspects have returned to the trade ! That means that at least one out of five terror suspects are now terrorists !
Terrorism , and so the war against it will never end Why is he closing Gitmo ?
Have you a source for that?
I've got a source that debunks that idea.

....Terrorism , and so the war against it will never end Why is he closing Gitmo ?....
Terrorism is the only grass roots industry over there. We developed it with the dictators we either supported or put in place. Criminals such as Saddam Hussein who we helped and Asaad who we supported along with Mubarak have done very little to help their people while they live in the lap of luxury. War with Israel and the resulting moonscape in Lebanon and the Arab sectors in Israel breed contempt from an early age. Figuring in that Israel has been at odds or war with these people for over 50 years it is no stretch that these disenfranchised people revert back to what they have only known. I am surprised any of them return to their homelands and carry on any type of normal existence. Maybe if we jail them all and refuse to try them will show their countrymen how fair and just we are and how they should emulate us?
As a matter of fact I watched al Department of Defense briefing for Congress as a leading military OBAMA advisor made that very statement ! You may find it on U tube .John . I will try to find it [made last week]
Obama stated several months ago that all Gitmo prisoners should remain there even if found innocent. I'm not sure I trust Obama if he can break his oath of office so glibly. Defending the Constitution no longer seems to have any meaning for our American presidents. (Look for the Judge Napolitano talk on a policy that even Hitler wouldn't think of using.)
And if you had been held in prison for years on false pretenses, would you be forgiving of your brutal captors?
We need to forgive. We need to turn the other cheek, lest we become terrorists ourselves.
9/11 was an inside job. So everything the government says is highly suspect. Everything the Corporate Party (mainstream) media says is also suspect. It's propaganda or distraction.
I used to believe in America. Now, I believe in the American ideal and in the fact that Americans still have some redeeming qualities, but the government and military of America have gone over to the dark side. It seems they've been sliding in that direction for over a century.
Why is it the reality that America elected a president that doesn't even love his own country , I miss Ronald .Reagan , at least he and everything he ever wrote , said in public , every act he performed before he became and as president stated one irrefutable truth , That as a leader , he loved America !
He also knew and completely understood the obvious missions and intentions of his enemies , Obama avoids this reality like the plague ., terrorism is here to stay , get used to it America , by the time the next , 9/11 happens and it will , those who are for releasing these terrorists and the closing of Gitmo , will be willing to donate an entire continent for a new prison .
There is a part of me that can't wait to see the reaction of , and the shock on the faces of those who believe in this one thing , "the inside job syndrome " on the occasion , god forbid ! of the next 9/11 . Shame on you .
Sounds like the speech of an apologist , Israel is surrounded by stanch enemies and has been since its beginning ! Will you also blame the creation of the state of Israel on America ? After all we ended the second world war , finding a permanent home for the Jewish was our fault too then ? ....Please !
America works on many diplomatic levels , can't exactly blame us for creating selfish dictators now can we ?
.....Will you also blame the creation of the state of Israel on America ? After all we ended the second world war , finding a permanent home for the Jewish was our fault too then ? ....Please ! .....
I think you are on to something. Was it the Palestinians cross to bare so to speak when the Jews were awarded their land. Truman signed the UN resolution very begrudgingly saying it was a big mistake.
.....America works on many diplomatic levels , can't exactly blame us for creating selfish dictators now can we ?....
And we love to install dictators so we can use the puppets as our proxies.
And what would your proposal be to create a home for the surviving Jewish after WWII , ship loads sailing from one country to another , perhaps Hitlers plan worked out better for you ?
The Brits thought they should be returned to their homelands. The Exodus 1947 was an example of this return to Hamburg, Germany. Instead of that solution the UN decided to succumb to Zionist demands for a Jewish State in the area they now exist.
Where are we now? Are the Palestinians just another victim of history and should tuck their tails and just go away? Are the ever increasing Jewish settlements just a figment of everyone's imagination? You see when you whip a dog time after time the dog eventually figures it has nothing to lose and bites you. With over 68 years of conflict and bad blood, generations of children have been raised to hate Israel. You see it's not a question of what we do for Israel but what can be done for these lost generations of Arabs who have experienced this atrocity?
Right now in the middle east there is more hatred of the Jewish state than ever , all through history there HAS been a multi- national bias against the Jewish . The creation of the Jewish state had to happen , has been a success and will continue to be so , Yet there continues to be an eternal rocket barrage against them literally and figuratively ! Just what would you have done with the Jewish state , integrate them into other countries, send them to the moon perhaps ?
