The United States has confirmed that 116 detainees have been "transferred" out of the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online): "Based on trends identified during the past eleven years, we assess that some detainees currently at GITMO will seek to reengage in terrorist or insurgent activities after they are transferred." The Director of National Intelligence said in a report recently released.
The agency first warned more than four years ago in December of 2010, that the number of then already "transferred" Guantanamo detainees returning to terrorist activity would increase as time passed. The report in summation said that detainees in turn would reengage in terrorist and insurgent activity.
Between January 14, 2014 and January 15, 2015 the U.S. government released an additional 33 Guantanamo detainees. Between January 14, 2014 and January 15, 2015 the U.S. government released an additional 33 Guantanamo detainees. This was confirmed in a statement released by House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R.-Texas).
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R.-Calif.) said the administration should abandon its efforts to close Guantanamo.
"It is simple common sense that the most radical and dangerous Islamist terrorists--which are who we hold at Guantanamo Bay--will return to terrorism if given the chance," Chairman Nunes said. "That is why the Obama administration should stop hunting for pretexts to release them in a misguided attempt to close down the prison."
As of January 15, according to the report, 647 detainees had been "transferred" from Guantanamo. Of these, 116 -- or 17.9 percent) were confirmed to have reengaged in terrorist or insurgent activities. Another 69, or 10.7 percent were suspected of having reengaged.
Altogether, 185, or 28.6 percent of the 647 released Guantanamo detainees were either confirmed or suspected of reengaging in terrorism or insurgent activities.
A former prisoner released from Guantanamo is "confirmed" to have returned to terrorist or insurgent activities when a "preponderance of information identifies" that specific former detainee as having done so. A former detainee is "suspected" of having returned to terrorist or insurgent activity when "plausible but unverified or single-source reporting," indicates that he has done so.
House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul criticized President Obama's policy of releasing Guantanamo detainees.
"At a time when Islamist extremists are surging worldwide, President Obama's policy of releasing hardened terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay facility is replenishing their ranks," McCaul said in a statement. "This administration must reassess its reckless detainee policies and stop freeing terrorists."
