Obama to Release 18 More Jihadis From Gitmo

via Obama Administration Intends to Transfer 17 or 18 Guantánamo Detainees

WASHINGTON — When Prime Minister Matteo Renzi of Italy visited the White House in October for a state dinner, he made a commitment to President Obama: Italy, which resettled a Yemeni detainee from Guantánamo Bay last summer, would take one more person on the transfer list. But before the deal was completed, Mr. Renzi resigned.

So a day after his successor, Paolo Gentiloni, formed a government on Dec. 14, Secretary of State John Kerry called to congratulate Mr. Gentiloni — and to urge him to follow through on the commitment, according to an official familiar with the negotiations. Mr. Gentiloni agreed, leading a rush to finalize the details and paperwork.

The effort was part of a burst of urgent, high-level diplomatic talks aimed at moving as many as possible of Guantánamo’s 22 prisoners who are recommended for transfer. By law, the Pentagon must notify Congress 30 days before a transfer, so the deadline to set in motion deals before the end of the Obama administration was Monday.

By late in the day, officials said, the administration had agreed to tell Congress that it intended to transfer 17 or 18 of the 59 remaining detainees at the prison; they would go to Italy, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. If all goes as planned, that will leave 41 or 42 prisoners in Guantánamo for Donald J. Trump’s administration. Mr. Trump has vowed to keep the prison operating and “load it up with some bad dudes.”


Obama also issued 78 pardons and 153 commuted sentences to criminals this week, extending his acts of clemency to 1,324! Feel safer?

  1. Just imagine, in your wildest nightmares, if Hillary Clinton had won…. That was going to be Barry’s ticket to fulfilling his QUOTA!!! We would be talking about a COMPLETE AND TOTAL emptying of Gitmo, not to mention, God only knows, how many other violent criminals that the Traitor in Chief would be releasing from prisons all over the country!!! BLESS YOU, DONALD TRUMP!!!!!

  2. stop the hate-mongering. The people in Gitmo have years ago been found not guilty of any charges and ordered released by the United States Supreme Court. The fact that Gitmo is still open is one of the black spots on America.

    • #Amy L Beam-in-ur-eye. Hi, Amy! You’re such a NICE person! I’m so sure you would just LUV to have the whole TRUCKLOAD of these NICE individuals from Gitmo DUMPED right next door to where YOU live! Yeah, I’d say IT’S YOU who has a problem seeing “the black spots” in America–but then, far be it from me to EVER accuse YOU of being BLIND AS A BAT–Oh wait, I’d NEVER want you to infer that I was implying that YOU’RE A DINGBAT!!!!! I THINK YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR FACTS, AMY! YOUR COMMENT PROVES THAT YOU ARE COMPLETELY CLUELESS–and probably DANGEROUS TOO!!!!!

        • There truly are no words to express the complete and abject ignorance of some people in the light of all the atrocities worldwide, which have occurred in the name of the BLOOD-CULT of islam and the allah-demon! If I didn’t consider some people to be a very real THREAT to our Democratic way of life, I’d probably feel sorry for them!!!!! You can lead a horse to water, but what the hell can you do with a STUBBORN JACKASS!!!!

    • YOU & OTHERS LIKE YOU MUST NOT CARE ABOUT ALL THE SERVICE MEN & WOMEN WHO LOST THEIR LIVES CAPTURING THESE PPL,YOU ALL DON’T DESERVE WHAT ALL THOSE MILITARY PERSONEL FOUGHT FOR.
      YOU HAVE NO FACTS ! THEY WERE NEVER FOUND NOT GUILTY!
