Meet Your New Neighbors, Al Qaeda

In a shocking new twist on the Obama Administration’s announced plans to close the terrorist detention facility at Guatanamo Bay, the Wall Street Journal reports [1] that some of the detainees may be released into the United States.

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.

Later in the briefing, Attorney General Holder says:

…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.

Apparently this is a deal that Holder is making with European Justice Ministers, who don’t want anything to do with these detainees, but are willing to accept a few suspected terrorists, so long as we take some too. The Left wants you to believe, and President Obama’s “courageous” Justice Department is now promoting, that the detainees in Guantanamo Bay arrived there by accident. They also want you to believe that if we can’t prosecute them the same way we prosecute a traffic offense, than they shouldn’t be┬ádetained at all.

These are scary times, and this a scary road the Obama Administration is taking. We can only hope we won’t be paying for their mortgages in a year.
