President Obama recently released six detainees from Guantanamo Bay, despite the fact that they were all classified as “high risk” prisoners. Now, it has been released that three of these detainees were once the personal bodyguards of Osama Bin Laden himself.
The three bodyguards were identified as Emad Abdullah Hassan, Idris Ahmad ‘Abd Al Qadir Idris and Jalal Salam Awad Awad, and they have each already been set free to Oman. According to Conservative Tribune, one of the other released detainees also has ties to Bin Laden, and another was once part of a Taliban insurgent squad known as the “Martyrs Brigade.”
Sadly, these releases aren’t much of a surprise, since Obama has said that he is trying to release as many prisoners from Guantanamo Bay as he can before Republicans are able to shut down his efforts.
“I think it’s fair to say (the president is) fully engaged in all things Guantanamo — transfers, dealing with the Senate and the House and the Hill, talking with the White House on a regular basis,” said an anonymous source, who added that Obama has no intention of stopping with the 57 prisoners he has already released.
“He has also said that he wants to take a holistic approach,” the official continued. “So he wants to focus on the 57 who are cleared for transfer, but he wants to see what we’re doing with the rest of those. So he’s thinking about all 122, not just the 57.”
It’s sickening that Obama is now setting free people who will likely attack our country once again. Shame on you, Mr. President!
