Do we really want four more years of a Democrat?
Obama continues releasing dangerous terrorists so they can kill more Americans, despite the protests of the intelligence community. Hillary will simply carry on four more years of Obama — do we really want that for our troops?
Republicans on the House intelligence committee said Wednesday that the Obama administration’s largest release of prisoners from Guantanamo Bay endangers American troops, and that the president will be fully responsible for any American casualties resulting from the transfer.
Fourteen Republicans, including all GOP members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, penned a letter to Obama objecting to the release of 15 detainees from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, arguing that the administration’s decision to release “increasingly dangerous terrorists” from U.S. custody jeopardizes U.S. forces operating abroad.
“Your actions increase the risk to U.S. forces and any injuries or deaths as a result are solely your responsibility,” the lawmakers, led by committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), wrote. “Therefore, we urge you again to stop transferring dangerous detainees from the Guantanamo detention facility and instead generate a comprehensive strategic plan to combat the growing terrorist threat to the United States and our allies.”
The administration transferred 15 detainees, including a member of an al Qaeda-linked bomb-making cell, into the control of the United Arab Emirates on August 15, prompting strong rebukes from lawmakers who regard Obama’s efforts to shutter the prison as a threat to national security. The administration announced the largest-ever prisoner release after the Washington Post reported that at least 12 detainees released from Guantanamo had committed attacks against U.S. or allied forces in Afghanistan, incidents that killed roughly half a dozen Americans.
