The Gitmo Detainees We Let Go

These are the non-dangerous ones:

Via Marc Thiessen at the Corner. Marc also has a piece at NRO that teases his new book, out today, in which he spoke to actual KSM interrogators:

As they described the information the CIA had gotten from KSM and others, I slowly realized that these men were not simply describing what others in the agency had done; I was sitting face to face with the individuals who had actually questioned terrorists at the CIA’s black sites and gotten the information they were describing to me themselves.

Looks interesting.

  1. Maybe the rehabilitation program is working from the perspective of the Saudi leaders. After all, the released detainees apparently aren’t attacking Saudi interests.

  2. Bingo, DRJ. The Saudis have a long history of buying off extremists to attack someone else.

  3. When the inevitable happens and one of these savages who is released by this administration commits an act of mass murder, Barack Obama should be held accountable in a criminal court.

  4. The leftists told us for years that these were all innocent goat-herders imprisoned by the war criminal Buuuuuuuusssssshhhhh!

    Wrong. If you were in prison I would demand that you be brought to trial for your alleged transgressions. That is in no way claiming your innocence. Or do you not comprehend that subtlety?

  6. If I was an armed combatant hiding amongst the civilian populace waging war against the US, I would not expect to be afforded the protections of the US criminal law system, or is that too much subtlety and nuance for you?

  7. And if I were a leprechaun I would be the good kind. Are we done pretending now?

    You were simply making stuff up and I called you on it. Now, go chew on that for the night.

  8. Apparently Barcky’s unicorn dust has fried your brains, or you did not pay attention to any of your Leftist buddies over the last 7 years. Thanks for demonstrating your total committment to bad-faith discussio, though that was obvious from your initial comments in other threads.

  9. Well if attacking the Saudi house liberal, bin Nayef, counts for something, just to show the contempt they have for them and us. The movie
    the Kingdom, has a particular pointed example
    at how useless this rehabilitation effort is.
    Now mind you, some of these attorneys that helped
    facilitate their release, were the Atty General’s
    law partners, or even some made it into the administration

    Nope. I just think that when you come up with winning arguments such as ‘the left thinks terrorists are innocent and should be free’ that you need to be corrected. I would gently do the same for any other toddler making an error in superlatives.

  11. I think we’ve uncovered another goat herder
