Obama: Freed Gitmo Terrorists I Said “Weren’t Terrorists” Are Terrorists After All

By Debbie Schlussel


Gitmo Islamic Terrorist Ali Shabaan Protests & Camps Out Next to U.S. Embassy

Sorry I’ve been away for a few days because of a few things, including a brief trial and getting better from my illness (while putting up with broken air conditioning in sweltering heat). But I’m baaaaack. While I was gone, the Obama Administration decided that it is now afraid of Islamic terrorists it released from Guantanamo Bay who it claimed were “not terrorists.” Turns out that when these cretins got a little too close for comfort to members of the Obama Administration, suddenly these “not terrorists” were actually terrorists again, after all.

The rest of us knew they were terrorists all along. They’d trained in Islamic terrorist training camps hosted by Al-Qaeda and its ilk, and we knew they were bent on our destruction. And so did Barack Obama, despite his and his minions’ claims that these were just nice, innocent Muslims immorally kept at Gitmo. Shocker: Obama lied. You see these Gitmo terrorists were sent to Uruguay. But the house where they live is right near the U.S. Embassy in Montevideo. And so these terrorists have the chutzpah to demonstrate in front of the U.S. Embassy, because after a decade of Gitmo-fare, they are demanding more welfare from the United States. They’ve been offered jobs, but they don’t want to work. They just want Uncle Sam to be their sugar daddy. Their protesting has made U.S. Embassy staff and personnel worried and frightened because, hey, they are terrorists after all. If they weren’t terrorists, why would anybody worry about being near them?

Struggling to adjust to their new environs, with no Spanish or relevant work skills, unable to reunite with their families or get passports, four of the six former inmates who were sent to Uruguay’s capital have set up a make-shift protest camp outside the U.S. Embassy. They pledge to stay there until the U.S. agrees to provide housing and income. “If the Uruguayan government cannot take care of us, the U.S. government should,” said one of the men, Ali Shabaan, a 32-year-old Syrian who spent almost 13 years at Guantanamo, adding that the U.S. is legally and ethically liable for their predicament. “It’s not easy to adapt to freedom after such a long time. Even if we were released into our own countries, it would be hard.”


Ex-Gitmo/Still-Terrorists Pray From Their Protest Camp Outside U.S. Embassy in Uruguay

Likewise, the detainees’ close proximity to the U.S. Embassy—aside from their encampment, their house is six blocks away—has unnerved American diplomats’ security details, say U.S. officials and congressional aides, leading to more frequent patrols around the embassy. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Edward Royce, a California Republican, raised concerns in an April 29 letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, about what he described as a lack adequate safeguards to ensure that the ex-detainees won’t threaten the U.S., including the embassy in Montevideo.

“This close proximity to the embassy, combined with the apparent lack of host country mitigation measures, poses a potential risk to the safety and security of our embassy and its employees, including local hires,” Mr. Royce said in the letter, which hasn’t been publicly released.

Ian Moss, a spokesman for the Office of the Special Envoy for Guantanamo Closure at the State Department, declined to discuss any of the specific assurances the U.S. might have received from Uruguay regarding the former detainees. But he said: “The decision to transfer a detainee is made only after detailed, specific conversations with the receiving country about the potential threat a detainee may pose after transfer and the measures the receiving country will take in order to sufficiently mitigate that threat.”

Um, what “threat”? How can there be a threat, if as Obama falsely pretends, they are not terrorists?

The men ended up in Uruguay after former President José Mujica gave them refugee status. In a 2014 letter to Mr. Mujica ahead of their release, the State Department’s then-Special Envoy for Guantanamo Closure Clifford Sloan told the Uruguayan president that the U.S. had no information that the six detainees “were involved in conducting or facilitating terrorist activities against the United States or its partners or allies.”

Mr. Royce, in his letter to Mr. Kerry, called those “dubious assertions.” The Bush administration ascertained that they had received terrorist training, including in how to carry out suicide operations. Mr. Royce also questioned the Uruguayan government’s provision of Mercosur identity cards to the ex-detainees, allowing them to travel across member states of the South American customs union. . . . When the ex-detainees arrived, Uruguay’s labor confederation lent them a house they share and gave them job training, while Montevideo gave them a $600 monthly stipend. But the former prisoners fear the agreements could end in February.

Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin said this past week that Uruguay wasn’t obligated to give them additional aid. He also said the men had mistakenly understood they would receive housing and a stipend for three years. Still, Uruguayan officials say they will help the refugees after February. . . .Gabriel Melgarejo, a union exe cutive who helped arrange housing for the men, said the country’s labor confederation cannot provide assistance to them indefinitely. But he said that when the men are ready, labor groups will help find them jobs.

A country of 3.3 million with an estimated Muslim population of just a few hundred, Uruguay is far from home, and memories of Guantanamo are still fresh for these men. Some of the refugees said the government hasn’t permitted them to bring family members to Uruguay.

Gee, a smart country, clearly much smarter than ours on Muslim immigration. Well, maybe not . . . .

Christian Mirza, the liaison between Uruguay’s government and the refugees, said the government was trying to help bring their family members to Uruguay. The four refugees—three Syrians and one Tunisian—have been living outside the U.S. Embassy since April 24. A fifth is ill and another declined to participate in the protest, Mr. Shabaan said.

Mr. Shabaan and the other men have found it hard to adjust in Uruguay. They can’t watch movies on local TV because they don’t understand Spanish. They would like to subscribe to Netflix, but don’t have credits cards to do so. They don’t have driver’s licenses or bicycles, nor could they afford a car or a bike. “We still lack the basic essentials that you need to live normal life,” Mr. Shabaan said.

Awwwwwwww. My heart bleeds for them.

Oh, and by the way, these ex-Gitmo terrorists are asking the U.S. government to send them . . . back to Gitmo. Maybe it wasn’t so bad after all.

Who knew the Gitmo Welfare Society was a thing?

Kind of like what the ‘elite’ thinks about forced busing and subsidized housing: ‘as long as it’s not near me’.

    They call them NIMBYs! (Not in my back yard.) The classic shorthand for liberal philosophy.

Seeing pics of muzlims ass-up, praying to their moon-god makes me sick.

DS_ROCKS! on May 7, 2015 at 8:17 pm

Leave them in Syria.

Worry on May 7, 2015 at 8:51 pm

Jobs for jihadis, yay!

Mochizuki Koga on May 7, 2015 at 10:17 pm

It’s not that they aren’t terrorists it’s that Obama’s decided he’s not going to unfairly stigmatize them as terrorists.
Everybody knows that’s what he meant and if you don’t get it you’re?
That’s right! Unfairly stigmatizing Islam & Muslims. Yay!

Mochizuki Koga on May 7, 2015 at 10:18 pm

Why Uruguay, of all places? Why not send them to one of the Islamic havens? Since they are Sunnis, send them to Shi’ite controlled parts of Iraq or Alawite controlled parts of Syria (such as Damascus). They’ll deal w/ them

Or turn them over to ISIS – I’ll bet that they’ll find them not Islamic enough, and behead them!!!

Canada just granted bail to former – thanks to Obama – Gitmo detainee, confessed and unrepentant terrorist Omar Khadr.

I think this administration is just trying to populate countries without Islamic influence “just to be fair” or more precisely to infiltrate.

Hey, if I recall (and I DO), we were already giving them housing and three square halal meals a day plus exercise opportunities and other amenities. They wanted to leave. My advice (admittedly ill-timed for their use) is “be careful what you wish for, sport.”

But if that’s not good enough maybe Sean Penn will host them. Or maybe Al Sharpton! Or one of our intellectual betters at CNN, MSNBC, or 90% of academia.

Side note: I love how the US Government ensured that there’s no information that they were involved in any terrorist plotting. Ummm yeah, you know why? ‘Cuz they were in Gitmo for 13 years. Oh and sorry you can’t make a living after being a terrorist. But hey, that’s the price of jihad, baby. Suck it up for the prophet and allah!

Wait, these vermin are not working and don’t understand or speak Spanish but they want to bring their family members to Uruguay? How are they going to support their family members? Makes me think someone is sending them money.

Concerned Citizen on May 8, 2015 at 12:19 pm

reverse wet backs? that sounds like a great idea,send all your illegal immigrants to Uruguay .
As with most cultists,they have ,since the days of Queen Victoria seen the west as a means of not working and they truly believe that the west owes them a living. IS has shown us the true face of islam ,and it is just the blinded politicos in the west who stand between us and them .

Those “refugees” evento asked Montevideo city hall to give them, for free, of course, a vacant land plot to build a mosque.

Rodrigo Veleda on May 8, 2015 at 10:03 pm

In my last comment, I meant “even”, not ” evento.”

Rodrigo Veleda on May 8, 2015 at 10:04 pm

He knew all along that this mu-slime was a terrorist. The cabalists obama works for and with are creating terrorist in the US. With al sharptounge and holder, and now lynch, terrorism is gaining in the cities. Anti-White, in the name of anti-police.

William on May 9, 2015 at 8:51 am

Of course Oblunder isn’t going to call the Gitmo terrorists for the scum that they are.

Lets hope that we can do what the Brits did over the pond. Kick out the liberal terror leaning leftists and vote in proud conservatives.

AmericanAntiSemites on May 9, 2015 at 8:14 pm

Don’t we have Marines trained as snipers at our embassies? Six seconds, no problem.

Occam's Tool on May 12, 2015 at 10:13 am

Again, the Obama administration is filled with members, not just auxillaries, of the Criminal Licensed Islamist Terrorist Organization Radicalizing Intellectual Support group.

Many of us realized that Obama had issues with being a part of this group early on. fairly obvious to sharp observers like Debbie that instead of the usual patriotic male equipment, Obama was a member of the Criminal Licensed Islamist Terrorist Organization Radicalizing Intellectual Support group.

Right, Debbie?
