    Odd how many reports left out that the number of dead Americans could be revealed only in closed testimony.

    During the hearing, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., asked Lewis how many people had died because of “terrorists who went back to their terrorist activity.”

    When Lewis responded that he would prefer to discuss the matter in a “classified setting,” Rohrabacher pressed him, asking if it was “over 10.”

    “Sir, what I can tell you is unfortunately there have been Americans that have died because of Gitmo detainees,” Lewis said.
