Absolutely no one with a brain should be surprised that the Bush-Obama Gitmo Terrorist Catch & Release program is behind the Christmas Day Northwest Airlines Flight 253 attack by Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
Released Gitmo Detainees Muhamad Al-Awfi & Said Ali Al Shari Planned Flt 253 Attack
Yes, it’s true. The latest news is that two released Guantanamo Bay detainees were masterminds of Friday’s attempt to blow up the plane and murder hundreds of passengers headed for Detroit. Plenty of released Gitmo terrorists have returned to terrorist activity. So, why wouldn’t they also be involved in hijackings and explosions of planes?
Well, I guess that New Age psychobabble “art therapy” really worked, huh?:
Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November, 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents.
American officials agreed to send the two terrorists to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an “art therapy rehabilitation program” and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.
Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari [DS: Also spelled, Said Ali Al Shiri], were sent to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of detainees who were released from American custody. Al-Harbi has since changed his name to Muhamad al-Awfi.
Both Saudi nationals have since emerged in leadership roles in Yemen, according to U.S. officials and the men’s own statements on al Qaeda propaganda tapes.
Both of the former Guantanamo detainees are described as military commanders and appear on a January, 2009 video along with the man described as the top leader of al Qaeda in Yemen, Abu Basir Naser al-Wahishi, formerly Osama bin Laden’s personal secretary.
Oh, and here’s the money quote:
Saudi officials concede its program has had its “failures” but insist that, overall, the effort has helped return potential terrorists to a meaningful life.
Yeah, that is “meaningful.” Just not in the way any Westerner who wants to preserve his way of life defines the word.
One program gives the former detainees paints and crayons as part of the rehabilitation regimen.
Whatta joke. I blame Bush and Obama–Bush for releasing these scumbags in the first place, and Obama for continuing to do it and seeking to close Gitmo.
Yeah, as Dr. Phil (whom I loathe) would say, “And how’s that workin’ for ya?”
