Obama Wants to Free Al Qaeda Terrorist for Reading Self-Help Books

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Set my terrorists free. That’s Obama new motto. He is determined to free all of Gitmo’s terrorists one way or another.

Desperate to empty the Guantanamo Bay prison by the end of his term, Obama quietly is giving “get out of jail free” cards for the flimsiest of excuses.

One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama.

“He has asked for yoga magazines and self-help books,” lawyer Pardiss Kebriaei told the parole board in April, noting he practices yoga in his cellblock and has read biographies of the Dalai Lama and Martin Luther King Jr.

Last month, the board said it found his story “credible” and declared al-Bihani “no longer…a threat to the security of the United States.”

Another is eligible for release because of his “positive attitude.”

And one longtime detainee, a former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, is now harmless because he’s going to start a “milk and honey farm.”

The Periodic Review Board already helped clear 78 of the remaining 149 prisoners for release, documents show, and has scheduled more hearings for this summer.

Many of these men were dubbed “forever prisoners” because of the threat they posed to the US — with intelligence officials warning that, if free, they would return to the jihad to kill Americans.

In a report on detainee recidivism, Obama’s own director of national intelligence this year documented that 178, or 29 percent, of the 614 prisoners already transferred from the prison have been confirmed to have, or are suspected of having, re-engaged in terrorism.

That means for every three freed from Gitmo, one has rejoined the war against us.

There isn’t even any ambiguity with these guys. Their family members in many cases are Al Qaeda members and leaders. That means this is a family business. And with Al Qaeda becoming more dangerous and powerful in the Middle East, they have places to go.

Obama keeps boasting about beating Al Qaeda. Meanwhile he’s determined to release Al Qaeda leaders.

    Who does Obama think he is: the parole board for New York State or something?

    Keeping these guys in prison serves no purpose whatsoever. If they can’t be prosecuted and convicted of any crime under American law, set them free with a target on their back and a drone on their tail. And the minute they take up arms against the United States of America, take them out. Supporting them with free room and board and free medical care at the expense of the American people is for the birds.

      How does it follow that because we are coddling them, we shoud set them free? How about cutting the luxuries and making them work on a chain gang, or something that adds a serious deterrent to attacking America? The death penalty is another inexpensive solution, but again, Obama is in the way.
      They will go back to terrorism, which means innocent people will die, including Americans. We don’t let rabid dogs run free, why let rabid humans?

      You insist that Obama “just doesn’t understand Muslims,” yet somehow, every move he makes miraculously ends up benefitting the Islamists. Obama isn’t going to tail these terrorists with drones. He’s helping them. He’s giving them money and Stingers. He undermined Mubarak in Eqypt so that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over. What has he ever done to impede Muslims?

        What good does it do (other than to provide a false sense of security) to lock up a few when there are millions on the loose?

          Are all people equally capable, or dangerous, or evil? Any military stragegist will tell you that destroying the leadership is the key to victory.

    The test should be eating a bacon sandwich and looking after pigs as pets!
    Pissing on the Koranus would also be convincing!
