Freed Terrorists Return To Terror

According to the New York Times:

An unreleased Pentagon report provides new details concluding that one in seven of the 534 prisoners already transferred abroad from the detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has returned to terrorism or militant activity, according to administration officials.
This is the one time I feel horrible about being right. Well, I also felt horrible when I suspected that Julie girl was a dude, but that's another story.

How many times did we try explaining to our more naive American brethren that Gitmo was not filled with gardeners and gym teachers. Or if they were gardeners and gym teachers they did so with an eye toward grenading for god. And now we find that, as we suspected, many of those we release go back to their lives of hatred and murder.

But the Times story gets even worse:

The Pentagon promised in January that the latest report would be released soon, but Bryan Whitman, a Pentagon spokesman, said that the findings were still “under review." Two administration officials said the report was being held up by Defence Department employees fearful of upsetting the White House.

What? The Pentagon is afraid to release information concerning the security of our nation because they're "fearful of upsetting the White House"?? The White House that promised transparency? The White House that claimed the Bush administration never allowed anyone to disagree? The White House the promised to close Gitmo?

    Isn't that amazing about not ticking off the WH? This bunch is cruel and unrelenting from all we read, and NOBODY wants to make them angry (did you hear about the Chrysler bigwig who has a lawsuit claiming obama bullied him?). Check out Robert Gibbs and how he talks to people; it suggests a mindset never felt in America government before....disdainful, belittling, scoffing Americans ... "WE are in control NOW"
    Think of the kind of people who are running our country!
    It's going to take Americans to REALLY tick the White House off; and we need to start!

    This bunch is cruelZ, that's what many Americans fail to see behind the facade of hope and love. The administration has created an enemies list that even includes a few members of the media, and they are relentless in their attacks. How else could you explain their incredible memo describing ex-military and pro-lifers ad potential terrorists?
