Holder:Gitmo detainees may be released into US

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners.

Sure, bring probable sworn enemies in through the front door.

Mr. Holder, in a briefing with reporters, said administration officials are still reviewing individual cases of the approximately 250 detainees to determine which will be put on trial and which may be released to comply with plans to close the detention facility by next year.

Six weeks into his tenure, Mr. Holder is still trying to assemble much of the Justice senior leadership, with several nominees awaiting Senate confirmation. He said he has reviewed the department’s handling of white-collar criminal cases in response to the financial crisis and is considering ways to increase coordination on financial fraud among federal prosecutors and state officials. He said he is trying to increase the budget dedicated to white-collar crime, while maintaining funding for national security.

It’s evident that to the Obama administration that capitalist pigs are the bigger threat, not those that crush and burn 3000 innocents by flying planes into 100 story buildings, or perhaps setting off a dirty bomb in a public space.

European justice ministers met with Mr. Holder earlier this week and pressed for details on how many Guantanamo prisoners the U.S. planned to release domestically, as part of any agreement for allies to accept detainees. Mr. Holder said U.S. officials would work to respond to the questions European officials have over U.S. Guantanamo plans.

For “people who can be released there are a variety of options that we have and among them is the possibility is that we would release them into this country,” Mr. Holder said. “That process is ongoing and we’ve not made any determinations or made any requests of anybody at this point.”

Among the detainees whose fate remains undetermined are 17 ethnic Uighurs, from the Central Asian region of China, who have been ordered released by a judge. The U.S. has refused to turn the men over to China, which considers them part of an separatist group.

Wouldn’t want to release a probable terrorist where he might be harmed, now would we?  BHO thinks we need to show them that we’re nice people and mean them no harm even though their religion demands them to kill us unbelievers, or at least subjugate us.  Where is our compassion people? After all, they had to endure tropical temperatures, free meals, free American legal representation and all the comforts they’d never dreamed of back in Desertrockistan.   

How could so many stupid people end up in the same place at the same time?
