Barack Hussein Obama only has a few weeks left as president, but he’s planning to go out with a bang that could put all of our lives in danger.
The Blaze reported that Obama is planning to release and transfer 17 or 18 of the remaining 59 prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. The prisoners are scheduled to be released to Italy, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
If Obama’s plan to release these prisoners is approved, Donald Trump will be left with 41 or 42 prisoners in Guantanamo Bay when he takes office. 10 of these remaining prisoners were charged or convicted in military commissions and at least another 27 were deemed too “dangerous” to release.
At least three of the remaining four or five come from countries with strong ties to radical Islam and another “whom no country offered a home,” according to the New York Times.
The Times continued:
The Bush administration brought about 780 men to Guantánamo after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, saying that it could hold Qaeda suspects there in indefinite wartime detention without trial — a move that the Supreme Court eventually approved — and that it could disregard the Geneva Conventions in how it treated them, which the court rejected.
President George W. Bush started trying to close the prison in his second term and bequeathed 242 detainees to Mr. Obama.
If these released Guantanamo Bay prisoners conduct any terrorist attacks, the blood of their victims will be on Obama’s hands.
