Obama is making good on his threat to close the Guantanamo Bay facility and release America’s enemies. On Monday, the Pentagon announced that 13 terrorists will be released from the facility this month alone.
The releases were not supposed to include those who are deemed to be “high risk” for recidivism. However, Monday’s announcement marks the fourth detainee to be released in 2016 that is considered a “high risk.”
Muhammad Abd Al Rahman Awn Al-Shamrani was flagged by U.S. officials who warned that he would most likely continue his terrorist activities if released. “If released without rehabilitation, close supervision, and means to successfully reintegrate into his society as a law-abiding citizen, it is assessed detainee would immediately seek out prior associates and reengage in hostilities and extremist support activities at home and abroad,” his file reads.
According to Breitbart, the terrorist told guards at Guantanamo Bay that he would kill Americans if he were released. Despite the warnings and threats, the Obama administration came to the conclusion that Al-Shamrani does not pose a threat and is going through with his release.
