Guantanamo Bay prisoner releases not so succesful
While all the bleeding heart lefties will be rejoicing (possibly prematurely) Obama’s decision to close down the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay, attention should be turning to what’s going to be happening to the freed inmates.
With the latest detainee Binyam Mohamed making it ‘back’ to the UK (rather than Ethiopia where he was originally from) and the usual MSM hand wringing about torture and Mr Mohamed has played it up for all it’s worth, it’s possibly timely to take a look at what’s happened to Mr Mohamed’s cell mates who have already been released.
The Economist has an excellent article about how some ‘failed’ states like Yemen are now becoming a safe area for the former prisoners to ‘start afresh’. Apparently the ‘rehabilitation’ has not been as successful as expected and the former inmates have gone right back to doing what they were doing when they got caught – being terrorists.
People seem to forget that these people are not like Mrs Smith next door, they don’t play by the rules of ‘civilised society’, they are quite happy to fly an aeroplane into a sky scraper killing thousands of people, and will work for years quietly to achieve that goal. Being nice and giving these people rehabilitation and fawning coverage by the MSM will not change their world view one bit.
Funny how quickly people forget.
The inmates at Guantanamo Bay and their fellow jihadist’s are people who want a system of ‘government’ where women are treated little better than cattle (and with even less rights), justice involves cutting people hands off in public, and the education and freedoms that you and I take for granted are simply not allowed, at all. Their aim is to see the entire planet operate like this and they will go to any lengths to achieve this.
They see our liberal democracies and the extension of rights to terrorists (that they would never give their hostages) as a sign of how weak and morally corrupt ‘western’ society is, simply confirming that their world view is correct.
Releasing these people will not change a thing, and it may well be that now Obama has the full facts before him he is coming to the realisation that simply letting these people go is a huge risk. This is why although these people may be leaving Guantanamo, they may well end up somewhere else under detention in the same way.
