WH Official claims ‘Upcoming progress’ in freeing Gitmo Terrorists this year


I don’t know what is worse. Watching this regime load up the world with these terrorists out of Gitmo, or the eunuchs known as Congress, in particular the GOPers who will sit back and watch this go down without a fight. We think about ourselves, but what about the Afghan people who will have to endure the terrorists as well? Who have endured years of their brutality.

Washington (AFP) – Moves to free detainees from the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay are gathering pace as the administration works to close the notorious jail, a top US official said Thursday.

“There are a significant number of transfers in the pipeline at various stages and I think you’re going to be seeing substantial progress this year,” the senior administration official said, amid a furor over the release of five Taliban prisoners for a captured US soldier in Afghanistan.

Here is a piece about just one of the fine fellows just released by our Commander in thief.

Release of Taliban Detainees Alarms Afghan Villagers
Some Recall Scorched-Earth Offensive Led by One of the Freed Prisoners

SHEYKHAN, Afghanistan—Taliban forces led by Mohammed Fazl swept through this village on the Shomali plain north of Kabul in 1999 in a scorched-earth offensive that prompted some 300,000 people to flee for their lives.

When the Taliban seized control of this area from their Northern Alliance rivals in 1999, they systematically demolished entire villages, blowing up houses, burning fields and seeding the land with mines, according to two comprehensive studies of war crimes and atrocities during wars in Afghanistan and human rights reports. Mr. Fazl played a major role in the destruction.

“There was not a single undamaged house or garden,” said Masjidi Fatehzada, a shopkeeper in Mir Bacha Kot, the district center. “My entire shop was burned to the ground. There was nothing left.”

Khwaja Mohammad, a farmer in the village of Sheykhan, remembered how Mr. Fazl’s men took away his son, a civilian, and sent him to Kabul’s Pul-e Charkhi prison.

“Fazl is the case among the five where there is clear evidence that he had command responsibility for forces that committed atrocities,” said Patricia Gossman, a researcher with the advocacy group Human Rights Watch who has studied crimes committed during the Afghan civil war. “Shomali is the place where he was on the ground.”

Ms. Gossman added that evidence also places Mr. Fazl on the scene of a massacre of civilians in the Yakawlang district of central Bamyan province in January 2001. All of the parties in Afghanistan’s civil war that began in the 1990s were involved in atrocities and rights abuses, according to researchers.

    At Hillary’s victory speech on election night, 2016 she will be spot on when she says, paraphrasing herself, What difference did these phoney scandals make, cackle cackle! Maybe she’ll declare marshal law and have all the republicans in the House and Senate
    arrested for negligence of duty.

    Bush and Obama both belong in GITMO for their crimes against our American soldiers who have been killed and maimed due to their outrageous R.O.I.; their R.O.I. that put a bullseye on the backs and foreheads of of these men whose patriotic fervor led them to sacrifice themselves for a country stupid enough to elect these two kings of crony capitalism. With the money given to government contractors who outnumber the troops in Afghanistan mercenary death squads could be paid to eliminate every last one of these bearded cretins in dirty nightshirts and Nikes.

      Once again, the wars were run by politicians and not the military. We either should have turned the countries to glass as we did to Japan or stayed home. I cannot believe they all wanted to see Allah post haste.

    I believe Obama is embarrassed because he failed to shutdown GITMO so this is his way of doing it. The Republicans will not stop him because I believe they want to use this against him in the upcoming election. They will let him free the prisoners and then run against it when they could stop it if they wanted to. They are putting their own futures ahead of doing what is best for the country and I hope they all get voted out in November!

    We have top empty Guantanamo, and we have to end the GWOT. The time has come. The American people are sick of war. The soldiers are exhausted. We just don’t have money for this, or at least don’t want to pay it anymore.

    It’s time to end this stupid thing.

      We don’t have to empty Gitmo. We need to send some of them to the Hague for war crimes. Holder just doesn’t want to prosecute.

        Holder? He’s not the problem. The problem is engaging with these guys in the way we are – as if at war. We have to end the war on terror and replace it with law enforcement, as it should be. If Holder could, he’d prosecute these guys, but this quasi-legal framework set up back in the Bush years has precluded anything like justice in this matter. We should send them back to their hell holes and be done with them.

    Only idiots buy into the irrational mindset that the detention facility at Gitmo needs to be closed. It doesn’t matter whether terrorists & other enemies of America use it as a rallying cry. If not it, then something else about the US would be used to recruit people against the West. Only fools bring magnets of terrorism into the US to imprison them & it’s folly to let dangerous combatants go free.

    Bunkerville, sadly I believe you to be incorrect about who it is that sits back and watches this go down without a fight. “When We, The People chose not to stand up, when we look in the mirror every night and the warrior spirit is not looking back, when we have no feeling of shame about where this country is headed, it is all over.”

      Thanks for the link. Thousands of Afghans will be slaughtered after we are gone. Anyone who they think supported us will be killed. No one talks about it. It is what happened in Iraq after the first war. The Kurds suffered terribly. Viet Nam, thousands went to re-education camps.
