  5. Report: Many released from Gitmo will resume fight against U.S.Read the original story

    Mar 8, 2015 | Washington Times

    Some of the suspected terrorists released from Guantanamo Bay will rejoin the fight against the U.S. no matter what conditions the government tries to impose on them, the intelligence community concluded in a report last week that gives Republicans more ammunition to stop President Obama's push to close the U.S. military detention center in Cuba. Detainees released and sent to volatile countries with no restrictions on their movements are the most likely to return to the battle, but some of those still being housed at the prison will find a way to rejoin the fight no matter what precautions are taken, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in the report.

    The report also warned: "Based on trends identified during the past eleven years, we assess that some detainees currently at GTMO will seek to reengage in terrorist or insurgent activities after they are transferred." The DNI first publicly warned more than four years ago--in December 2010--that the number of then already "transferred" Guantanamo detainees returning to terror and insurgent activity would increase as time passed and that if additional detainees were released in the future some of those would also return to terrorist and insurgent activities.
