The news broke late on August 7, 2013:
In spite of the ongoing terror threat emanating from Yemen, the White House says it does not plan to rethink President Obama’s decision last May to lift a moratorium on releasing Guantanamo Bay prisoners back to that country…
… The president is standing by that announcement, even though Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the Al Qaeda affiliate in Yemen that U.S. intelligence officials say is now the greatest Al Qaeda threat to the U.S. homeland, was formed in part by several former Guantanamo Bay detainees who were released in 2006…
…The genesis of AQAP goes back to a prison break in Yemen in February 2006. That’s when 23 Al Qaeda suspects, including Nasser Al Wuhayshi – who once served as Usama bin Laden’s secretary and whose communications with Ayman Zawahiri were intercepted by U.S. intelligence — tunneled out of a maximum security prison in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen. – Obama standing by decision to lift moratorium on releasing Guantanamo Bay prisoners back to Yemen; FOX News, August 8, 2013
The timing is suspicious to say the least, especially given the fact that the White House claims to have apparently already reviewed this decision and is standing by it.
I am convinced the embassy closures were a fake in order to set up a justification for this release. That’s one way to keep your “promise” to close Gitmo.
Weren’t we just told that Yemen, of all the closed embassies, was the place from which the “information”–which remains somewhat vague and difficult to pin down–had originated? Wasn’t Yemen the place from which the main AQ terrorists of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) have remained stubbornly non-wiped out or on the run, contrary to the President’s claims?
Yemen, the home of Usama Bin Laden, the place where genius FBI agent John O’Neill went after the bombing of the USS Cole–yup, that happened there, too–and traced the financial origins of the bulk of the terrorist attack financing for the African Embassy bombings as well as the Cole. Yemen, the place where then-Ambassador Barbara Bodine aided and abetted the enemy by grinding the bombing investigation to a virtual halt so O’Neill could do nothing and was eventually taken off the case.
As Shepard Smith said yesterday on FOX News, “I’m not trusting anything this administration says anymore.”
There is no way this wasn’t in play before the announced embassy closings, which right on cue, have been extended. There is no way it hadn’t been reviewed long before our recent “weekend of panic.” There is no way this is noble, good, beneficial, or conducive with Obama’s duty to defend this nation from all enemies both foreign and/or domestic.
This is beyond flagrant conspiracy with all enemies who have sworn to wipe out America. This is open-armed embrace of AQAP, and it’s looking like it was planned before Obama ever declared it wiped out and on the run.
This is beyond Obama believing his pathetic self to be a King. This is beyond his coddling of wretched Islam and nutless panicked fleeing of Communism, making him the best friend this secret combination of Islammunism could ever have.
This is treason by a Totalitarian Dictator hell-bent on One World Rule. He has cut out Congress. He has cut out the Justice Dept. There are no more checks and balances, and he has the added security of the bulk of the Hippy Press (main stream media) falling into line, unable to give him enough applause and rationalizations to support every Constitutional violation. The military has been so utterly emasculated I’m waiting for the new purple camo uniforms with pink highlights and spiffy accessories taking the place of those mean guns.
America, choose this day whom you will serve: destruction of our nation by a treasonous, lying, thief, conspiring with our enemies or the nation that bore the likes of men who tore down walls and ended decades of threats and endless war, freeing millions and never budging from the side of freedom for all.
Keep the faith, bros, in all things courage, and no substitute for VICTORY.
