Barry, you've got some more 'splainin to do.
Just as I humbly predicted earlier, the former residents of Gitmo, enjoying their pardons granted by Dingle Barry Obama, have returned to their regular jobs and are hard at working killing Americans.
Gitmo was a great place for terrorists. Good food, good medical care, visits from the Red Cross, not to mention the camaraderie of their fellow murderers of innocent men, women and children. After a few months R&R at Spa de Gimo, the terrorists are recharged and ready to rock.
An increasing number of detainees released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay are joining insurgent groups, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.
The disclosure came amid revelations that former detainees were playing a leadership role in al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- a Yemen-based group believed to be behind a failed plot to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day.
President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday that the United States was suspending the transfer of additional detainees from Guantanamo Bay to Yemen, citing the deteriorating security situation there.
Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell said that the latest figure -- which was still classified -- showed a continued increase from April 2009, when the department disclosed that 14 percent of former detainees had joined or were suspected of joining insurgent groups.
That was up from 11 percent in December 2008.
"The trend hasn't reversed itself," Morrell said.
"This is an inexact science. You know, we are making subjective calls based upon judgment, intelligence. And so there is no foolproof answer in this realm. That's what makes this so difficult."
But he added: "There needs to be a better accounting of detainees."
There are 198 prisoners left at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, which once held 750, Pentagon officials said. Of those still being held there, roughly 91 are Yemeni.
Obama has encountered various complications in trying to close the Guantanamo facility and has acknowledged he will not be able to meet a self-imposed one-year deadline to close it that he promised when he took office last January.
Just last month Obama's aides announced the U.S. government would proceed with buying an Illinois prison and are bolstering security there so a limited number of Guantanamo detainees can be transferred to it.
Gee - I can hardly wait! Terrorists right in the middle of the Homeland. Has anyone noticed that the Illinois prison is smack dab in the middle of Obama's Senate District?
The new residents of Pork-Barrel Pen will feel right at home knowing Obama, their Muslim socialist anti-American brother-in-arms, is nearby and looking out for their best interests.
Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers must be so proud.
